For the third year in a row, Marriott has announced that they will once again offer Elite Rollover Nights. Through Elite Rollover Nights, all nights earned beyond the status level qualified for will count towards next year’s elite status. It’s certainly a nice reward which doesn’t dilute status, since Marriott has by far the highest number of nights required for their middle and top tier status levels, and they don’t let you qualify based on stays. Sadly I don’t expect we’ll see any of the other major chains match, as status is much easier to earn with them. For example, Platinum (top tier) status with Marriott takes 75 nights, while Diamond (top tier) status with Hyatt takes only 25 stays or 50 nights.
