Combine accounts. Explore the new program.

  • Combine your SPG and Rewards accounts to create a single account and profile — and automatically add up your points and Elite-night balances.
  • You have a new Member Number. Log in to your account with your new Member Number or email to see your new account. Don’t worry if you forget your new number, we’ll remind you when you log in to our websites.
  • Use your new Member Number when you book any of our hotels across all our websites, apps and through Member Support.
  • And, if you’re an Elite member, you’ll be able to see your new Elite status and all the benefits that go with it from your one account.

REMINDER: Here’s how SPG is changing.

Six things you need to know.

  1. 1 Combine Accounts into One.

    • If you have an account with Marriott Rewards or The Ritz-Carlton Rewards in addition to your SPG account, you’ll want to combine them now (even if you’ve already linked them).
    • Combining accounts will create a single account and profile; and it will add up your points and Elite-night balances — you might even achieve a new Elite status!


    Note: Any past reservations will be updated to display within 24 to 48 hours of when you combine your accounts.

  2. 2 New Elite Status Levels and Benefits.

    • New Elite status levels and new benefits are now live, including a new Silver Elite status achieved at 10 nights. Click here to learn more.
    • Starting January 1, 2019, Elite status will be achieved on nights and not on stays. Until then, SPG members can achieve status based on stays at SPG-associated brands only, AND can also qualify based on nights across the 29 brands.
    • Elite members will continue to be Elite with a new, similar tier level. Your Elite status is based on the status earned, not status granted via linking and status matching. See Elite status chart below.
    • Don’t forget — when you combine accounts, you could also achieve a higher Elite tier — based on combined SPG and Rewards nights stayed across our 29 brands, starting from January 1, 2018.
    • If you’ve previously achieved Lifetime Elite status in SPG or Rewards, you will have that Lifetime Elite status in the new program. In addition, when you combine SPG and Rewards accounts, we will combine your lifetime activity across both toward Lifetime Elite status in the new combined program.
    • And, if you’ve achieved Elite status in both Rewards and SPG in a single year, it will count as two years toward Lifetime status.
