What is the value of Marriott Platinum Bonvoy Status?

Part 3 of 4

Lounge Access is one of the most hidden gems in the Marriott Rewards program. The key to unlocking this benefit is knowing the hotels that offer lounge access and taking it to the next level.

Now let’s get a plane and travel to Abu Dhabi! The Ritz Calton in Abu Dhabi on the Grand Canal has a stunning lounge on the 7th floor that overlooks the pool and is available daily to Platinum members from 7 am to 11 pm. Your breakfast is complimentary, and drinks and snacks are available in the lounge all day.

If you are suddenly thirsty for a refreshing drink and not interested in paying $20 for a drink and another $20 for a sandwich, no worries, head up to the 7th-floor lounge! By the way, they also change the food presentations five times a day! The lounge access is easily worth $200 a day per person; keep in mind that the real value is having access to a private lounge to relax and enjoy a glass of wine, coffee or tea with friends while spending $0.00. This experience is priceless!

Spending a week at this five-star resort as a platinum member can provide you with an excess of $2,800 in lounge access value as a Marriott Bonvoy platinum member!
