The world’s largest global collection of hotels and resorts has launched a contest to stay for free at its hotels over the course of 300 days
After the last two pandemic years we’ve all endured, hotel hopping (complete with room service, pool access, fluffy beds, and amazing destinations) for a year is sounding pretty good right about now.
If you think you have what it takes, the Marriott Bonvoy program—a group of 30 hotel and resort brands ranging from the chic and boutique Autograph Collection to the uber-luxe Ritz-Carlton properties—is looking for three people to travel throughout the world over the course of up to 300 days and document their hotel stays on TikTok.
The #30stays300days contest, as Marriott has deemed the opportunity, opens to applicants (who must be at least 21 and a resident of the U.S.) on January 18 and runs through March 18, 2022.
Three winners will be selected and tapped to serve as Marriott Bonvoy TikTok Correspondents. They will each have 300 days to stay at 10 different Marriott properties in up to four different destinations (round-trip flights to those four locales are included). The correspondents will stay free of charge for up to 14 nights in each of the four destinations—or a total of 56 comped hotel nights. Marriott Bonvoy is also throwing in a $2,500 Uber credit; a $10,000 Marriott Bonvoy gift card for on-property expenses such as meals and spa services; and a $15,000 payment.
In exchange, the “correspondents” will be required to create social media and online content at least once a day during each hotel stay and must also agree to make media appearances.
The winners can bring a companion who will travel at their own expense, and the selected participants will need to adhere to pandemic-related entry requirements for the destinations they travel to (for instance, if there is a vaccination or COVID testing requirement).
In addition to the grand prize winners, up to seven finalists will be awarded 45,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.
Interested applicants should submit a TikTok video explaining why they would make a good correspondent for Marriott using the hashtags #30stays300days and #contest.
The winners will work together with Marriott to identify the hotels and destinations where they will stay, but we of course couldn’t help but dream about some of our favorite Marriott Bonvoy properties and places that would be on our wish list for such a fun opportunity.
