{Sponsored} Marriott Rewards® Year of Surprises

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Centralfor Marriott Rewards. I received Marriott Points to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Well you all know I love me some awesome hotels to travel in!  I’ve become super loyal to the Starwood brand, in large part because of the RunWestin program.  I have never stayed at a Marriott before, but this year of surprises sounds like a lot of fun!

In honor of its 30th birthday, Marriott Rewards is celebrating with its members all year
long with a Year of Surprises.
