Well, it’s been an insanely busy week for me, as I got back into the swing of things at work, and in life in general. As such, I didn’t get to write as much as I wanted to, so here is a weekly round-up of some of the goings-ons in the World of travel, points and miles. I’ll try to call out the top four or five stories on a weekly basis in the future.
Atlantis Resort becomes a Marriott Rewards Partner
This week, the uber-popular Atlantis Resort and Casino in the Bahamas officially joined the Marriott Rewards program. The incredible resort is now bookable with Marriott Points at the following levels:
- Beach Towers – 35,000 points per night (category 7)
- Coral Towers – 35,000 points per night (category 7)
- Royal Towers – 40,000 points per night (category 8)
- The Cove – 45,000 points per night (category 9)
While a little steep, it is a great resort, and if you’re sitting on a stockpile of Marriott points, it’s a definite option for a Caribbean vacation. The property is marketing each tower as a separate hotel. While the Cove and maybe Royal Towers could be a deal, I don’t think the Beach and Coral Towers are particularly good values considering that a night here can routinely be had for les than $150 per night.
