Marriott Bonvoy, the loyalty program of Marriott International, has announced the completion of the integration of City Express brand into its systems.
Marriott International completed the acquisition of the City Express brand portfolio in May, entering the affordable midscale segment and launching its 31st brand, City Express by Marriott, making it the largest hotel company in the region. With the integration of City Express in to Marriott Bonvoy’s systems, members can now earn points at nearly 150 additional hotels in the Caribbean and Latin America.
The City Express loyalty program, known as City Premios Rewards, was highly recognized among Latin American travelers. It has now been fully integrated into Marriott Bonvoy and no longer exists as a separate program. Many existing City Premios members have already transferred their points and become Marriott Bonvoy members, further growing Marriott Bonvoy which currently has more than 186 million members worldwide with more than 6 million in the Caribbean and Latin America. City Premios members can transfer their points until 30th September 2023.
We’re thrilled to welcome City Premios members to Marriott Bonvoy, allowing access to nearly 8,600 properties and extraordinary experiences. With the transition of these hotels, our Marriott Bonvoy family in the region has grown even more, and we are excited to be able to offer more choices to our guests and more ways to earn and redeem for our members.said Diana Plazas-Trowbridge, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer – Caribbean and Latin America, Marriott International.
