Marriott has announced what hotels are changing categories for 2021. The new pricing will go into effect on March 3, 2021. Unlike previous years were almost one third of properties changed categories, this year only 201 properties are changing category with the majority decreasing in price.
- 51 will increase in price
- 150 will decrease in price
Not a huge surprise given COVID-19 and low occupancy rates. Marriott has been offering frequent ‘all properties at off peak rate sales’, but realistically most properties should have off peak pricing if the program works as advertised due to the low occupancy rates.
