A bit surprised no one started a thread on this: "It's a fresh perk for Gold and Platinum Elite Marriott Rewards members: Starting June 22 we will offer free continental breakfast for 2 at JW Marriott®, Autograph Collection®, Renaissance® and Marriott Hotels® across the U.S. and Canada* – every day, 7 days a week. When the concierge lounge is open, you and a guest can enjoy complimentary continental breakfast. And there's more on the menu. Any time the lounge is closed, you'll have a choice of continental breakfast for 2 in the hotel's restaurant or 750 points.** Outside the U.S. and Canada you will continue to enjoy daily complimentary continental breakfast. So be watching for this delicious benefit. We're serving up good mornings, free and easy for you. *Resorts are excluded. Charges applied for additional guests. **A limited number of hotels will provide 1,000 points in lieu of breakfast in the event the lounge is closed." So good news is that for those who value breakfast they'll be able to get cont'l brekkie on the weekends now, even if the lounge is closed. Actually, if the lounge is closed they have the option of 750 points or cont'l brekkie. If the lounge is open, the 750 points option is not available. On Marriott Insiders they confirmed the 750 points is per day if the lounge is closed or there is no lounge, not per stay. That's a definite plus. Some properties might offer cont'l brekkie only, some might offer full brekkie for an upcharge or some might offer the full brekkie for free. I'll track that in the exec lounge sticky I maintain on FT. Interestingly enough, the rest of world already had this option so it's just US/Canada catching up. But rest of world didn't have the 750 points option, so they're behind now. Also, the announcement says for elite+1 guest, so for hotels that said it was for elite only they'll have to abide by it. Of course the announcement is for US/Canada only, so int'ly some could say for elite only. Could be worth arguing over. Also, it doesn't say what the charge will be for additional guests (might be hotel dependent). Downside is CY & resorts are still exempt. Cheers.
