Utilizing British Airways' Executive Club for flights in North America - updated!


Our feature Utilizing British Airways' Executive Club for flights in North America has been very popular on our site for well over 5 years now. It had been last updated in 2016 and was in need of an overhaul thanks to changes in routes and of course, BA's changes to partner award flights earlier this year. I am happy to tell you that I have completed that update! It shows all the current routes in North America that you can use British Airways Executive Club Avios on that are a better or as good as deal as competing programs like Aeroplan.

 Here are the routes we detail in the feature:



This feature is a good starting off point to show you the value in programs outside of our main Canadian ones and how we should have a narrow focus on only a few programs. It also shows the value in programs like American Express' Membership Rewards, RBC Rewards, HSBC Rewards and Marriott Bonvoy as they are flexible in allowing you multiple reward program options, of which in the case of this article is British Airways Executive Club.

10 great Marriott Hotels in Canada to use your anniversary free night award from the Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card


The Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card comes with a great sign up bonus when you first get the card along with a great everyday earn rate but it also has a decent offer for holding on to the card beyond your first year. Upon your card's anniversary you'll receive a free Marriott Annual Free Night Award for up to 35,000 points at eligible hotels and resorts worldwide. You get this benefit each and every year you have the card. This means you could redeem it for hotels that fall under the Category 1 to 5 levels in the Standard category:


You can even push it to Category 6 if you can find a hotel that is running an Off Peak PointSavers rate as those are only 35,000 points as well.

For many hotels, especially the Category 4 and 5 hotels, this means saving more money than the $120 annual fee the card carries when you hit that anniversary date.  For example, one night at the Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel is only 35,000 points which means you can use the certificate for this stay:


And the cash price for the same room:


That's a pretty good deal! Spending $120 on the credit card fee to get a hotel room worth $411! And you're not even taking into account all the other benefits on the card like the points earning, silver elite status and the 15 night elite status credit.

In Canada you have quite a few choices that you can use the certificate, namely 237 hotels in total that fall into the following categories:
  • Category 1 - 8 Hotels
  • Category 2 - 35 Hotels
  • Category 3 - 85 Hotels
  • Category 4 - 57 Hotels
  • Category 5 - 52 Hotels
From those 237 hotels these are our top 10 picks to use your certificate at for travels within Canada:

Calgary Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel
Category 5
One of the newer Marriott hotels in YYC, the Calgary Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel was their flagship hotel in terms of design and services when it opened in 2016. Rewards Canada was able to try out the hotel just after it opened. Check out our review here. With rates easily running over $200 per night not only does the certificate save you a good chunk of change you are staying at a great new hotel!

JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District
Category 5
The newest luxury Marriott Hotel in Canada to JW Marriott Edmonton is in the thick of the things in YEG being situated in the ICE District and connected to Rogers Place Arena. A quick check of rates for December showed a 2 queen room going for $347 and there was availability for use of the Free Night Award.

The Algonquin Resort St. Andrews by-the-Sea, Autograph Collection 
Category 4
Over 100 years old the Algonquin Resort is one of Canada's most iconic seadside hotels! Use the certificate to have a night of elegance or in the case of the Rewards Canada family, maybe some ghost hunting!

The Hotel Saskatchewan, Autograph Collection 
Category 3 
Another opulent hotel in Marriott's Autograph Collection in Canada, Regina's The Hotel Saskatchewan makes for that great stay-cation or if you require to overnight in downtown Regina for business and you need to cover the hotel room cost yourself you may want to use your certificate here!

AC Hotel by Marriott Montreal Downtown
Category 5
Perfectly located in downtown Montreal, this was the first AC Hotel in Canada and is still new by hotel standards as it only opened in 2018. Rooms typically run well over $200 per night so it is a great place to use your Free Night Award at.

Delta Hotels Ottawa City Centre
Category 4
A beautiful hotel in downtown Ottawa that regularly runs over $150 per night is an ideal spot for that stay in YOW. Less than a kilometer from Parliament Hill this another good hotel to use your certificate at.

Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel  
Category 5
Located within Rogers Centre this hotel is perfect if you have tickets to a Blue Jays game! Using the certificate at this hotel is a great way to enhance that game experience by extending it with a stay. Nothing like turning a baseball game into a mini vacation. Rates here are typically in the $200 to low $300 range but when we checked a random night in November a king room with city view was $411 and there was 35,000 point availability for that room.

Ottawa Marriott Hotel 
Category 5
Close to all the action in downtown Ottawa and for visiting Parliament and the Rideau Canal is great hotel choice to use your certificate at. This hotel runs well into the high $200 to $300 range so using your certificate here can generate a huge return for you.

The Westin Bayshore, Vancouver
Category 5
Situated right on the water and within walking distance of Stanley Park, the Westin Bayshore is an ideal hotel to use your Free Night Award at for a stay in downtown Vancouver. This hotel sees hotel rates starting in the mid-$200 range on many nights with lots of availability for the Free Night Award


Delta Hotels Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort
Category 5
Probably the second most iconic hotel on Victoria Harbour, the Delta Hotels Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort is only a short water taxi ride from all the action in Downtown Victoria. And it has some of the highest ratings/reviews of all Marriott Hotels in Canada so that must tell you something.

What about you? Comment below and let us know what your favourite Marriott Hotels in Canada are to use your certificate at!
