Category 1 Hotels with Marriott That Will Surprise You

Not everyone has a huge cachet of Marriott Bonvoy points to spend on the top-end category 8 resorts. 

With over 200 designated as Marriott category 1 hotels around the world, there are only so many that are actually good deals.


TownePlace Suites Baton Rouge South

This is an extended-stay type of property under the Towneplace Suites banner which means suites and studios have a fully equipped kitchen with stovetop, dishwasher, microwave, pots, pans, dishes, and glasses.

This is a well-reviewed property that's been modernized, comes with a large pool, is in the core of the city, is close to an In-N-Out Burger, and is near the Kern River.

Four Points by Sheraton Bakersfield

Aloft Little Rock West

I love this boutique hotel located on the west end of Little Rock. If you've never stayed at an Aloft, this is an ultra-modern property that gives the W Hotel vibes without the cost.

Near the city of Broken Arrow, you're close to tons of shopping, Expo Square, and Union Multipurpose Activity Center. With a car, you're also close to the Tulsa Zoo, Gathering Place, Gilcreae Museum, and Philbrook Museum of Art.

Fairfield Inn & Suites Winnipeg

Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport is located close to the city itself so this property has the convenience of having a free airport shuttle to the airport and also being 12 minutes drive to the downtown.
