Ritz-Carlton now has a Best Rate Guarantee (and it is Marriott’s excellent Look No Further Guarantee)
According to reports on FlyerTalk, Marriott’s Best Rate Guarantee is now accepting claims for Ritz-Carlton as well.
The Marriott BRG is still one of the best in the market. Claims are responded to within 24 hours and the treatment is fair and objective.
Ritz-Carlton properties were long-excluded from the Look No Further Guarantee with Marriott, but you can now use it for Ritz-Carlton as well.
Why does this matter?
Ritz-Carlton properties are VERY expensive and with points are rarely a good deal. They also tend to be $400+ on marriott.com.
However, on many OTA sites, they often trade for a steep discount – up to 70% off the price on marriott.com / ritzcarlton.com.
The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta can both often be found for around $150/night. When filing a successful BRG claim, you will get a 25% discount of the rate found.
With so many deals going away, it’s great to see one added to our inventory.
