    Marriott Rewards, the first and only hotel loyalty program to allow members to rollover Elite nights, has now made that benefit a permanent part of the program.

    As Marriott reports, with Elite Rollover, members may carry over their Elite nights into the next year, allowing them to achieve or maintain their elite status faster and easier.

    Elite Rollover is simple. Any nights earned in excess of the minimum Elite requirements are automatically applied to the following year’s status. Elite nights may be earned in several ways, including staying at any of Marriott Rewards participating hotels, hosting an event at a Marriott International hotel, through promotions or by signing up for one of Marriott Rewards Visa credit cards.

    Marriott Rewards has three Elite levels – Silver (requires 10 nights per year), Gold (requires 50 nights per year) and Platinum (requires 75 nights per year). Elite level membership has many benefits including bonus points, Elite exclusive offers, dedicated Elite reservation line, priority late checkout and ultimate reservation guarantee.

    But it appears the program has changed is a subtle way/, Rollover nights can now only be used to maintain or elevate your status and will not be applied to a lower one. Not quite sure how to interpret it, but the language posted on the Marriott site: "If a member downgrades to a lower status (e.g., Plat to Gold, Gold to Silver) there would be no rollover nights."

    Just keep in mind, that rollover nights that were "rolled over" for the current year will not roll over again for the next.

    It's a guess, but I think what they mean is if you are a Platinum this year and only earn 70 nights, you'd not have enough to remain Platinum, and so would drop to Gold (usually requiring 50 nights). However, the extra 20 nights (70 - 50 = 20) would not roll over to next year.

    If that's what they mean, this is not a change. Only rollover nights are those in excess of requalifying at the same level (or higher).
