A few months ago, Marriott announced that Gold and Platinum elite members would receive free Internet at hotels in the 48 contiguous U.S., Alaska and Canada beginning in May. Marriott is now expanding the free Internet benefit to include Marriott Hotels & Resorts, JW Marriott, Renaissance Hotels and Autograph Collection Hotels in all 50 States, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America. Basically, if you are a mid to upper elite level member staying in almost any Marriott property in North or South America, you will receive complimentary Internet access. Also, when staying in the U.S. or Canada, Gold and Platinum members will receive free local calls. All Marriott Rewards members will continue to receive free Internet access at all Courtyard, Fairfield Inn & Suites, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites hotels in the U.S. and Canada.
