Marriott International plans to provide free Wi-Fi to all 47 million members of Marriott Rewards, the company’s award-winning loyalty program, who book directly on Marriott.com, Marriott’s mobile app, 800-MARRIOTT or through a Marriott hotel. Beginning Jan. 15, 2015, this benefit will make free standard Wi-Fi available across more than 3,800 hotels in the company’s extensive lodging portfolio worldwide.

This new Marriott Rewards benefit will be available at Marriott Hotels, JW Marriott, Renaissance, Gaylord Hotels, Autograph Collection, AC Hotels by Marriott and Marriott Executive Apartments, as well as Marriott Rewards’ exclusive luxury partner, The Ritz-Carlton. These brands join EDITION, Moxy, Courtyard, Fairfield Inn & Suites, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn, TownePlace Suites and Marriott Vacation Club, which already provide free Wi-Fi today.

Marriott Rewards Platinum and Gold Elite members will continue to have access to free enhanced Wi-Fi, where available. This premium-tier service allows for downloading large files faster and streaming media such as movies. Other members may upgrade to enhanced Wi-Fi for a fee.  Marriott International will continue to honor commitments with accounts and groups with negotiated agreements.
