May 16 Update: Marriott Moments adds expert recommendations and bespoke categories, 40 bonus AIR MILES for Best Western stays + more

Marriott is working hard to bring more light to their Moments experience options. The following is an excerpt from today’s Marriott press release:

This summer, Marriott has tapped into the company’s global network of
thousands of local-area experts including its hotel associates, as well
as global partners and celebrities to recommend their favorite sites to
see and must-do activities. Throughout Marriott Moments, expert
recommendations from hotel general managers, chefs and mixologists,
luminary partners Chefs Daniel Boulud, Eric Ripert and Stephanie Izard,
as well as actress Lea Michele, freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy and sports
broadcaster Michele Tafoya will be featured, with more local area
expertise from Marriott hotel associates to be added regularly. As a
complement to the recommendations, Marriott Moments will offer bespoke
categories based on passion points, types of travel companions, and
personality traits including “Pop-Culture Vulture,” “Exhaust Your Kids
and Be the Family Hero,” and “Young, Broke & Fabulous.” All
recommendations and categories will feature hand-curated lists of the
best things to do from around the world, available for purchase with any
major credit card.

Currently Marriott Moments features over 100 recommendations from actors, athletes, award-wining Chef’s and others including:

  • Actress Lea Michele recommends her favorite museums, shopping areas, hikes and concert venues in LA and NYC.
  • Freestyle Skier Gus Kenworthy recommends his favorite
    off-the-beaten-path museums in Paris, Boston and London, as well as his
    favorite ways to explore the Matterhorn in Switzerland, Lynn Canyon in
    Vancouver, British Columbia, San Francisco and beyond.
  • Sportscaster Michele Tafoya recommends active experiences including
    picturesque bike rides along Manhattan Beach, Sydney Harbor or the Loire
    Valley countryside in France; and thrills like a helicopter ride to a
    glacier and dog-sledding in Juneau, Alaska.
  • Chef Eric Ripert recommends his favorite food markets, restaurants,
    jazz clubs, spas and hikes around the world from Puerto Rico and
    Chicago, to Bhutan and Marrakech.
  • Chef Daniel Boulud recommends his favorite food markets and restaurants in NYC, San Sebastian, Lyon, Singapore and more.
  • Chef Stephanie Izard recommends her sure-fire ways of getting to know the culture and history of cities on three continents.

of experiences, bespoke categories will be featured on the site
throughout the year starting with:

  • Young, Fabulous, and Broke: For trendy travelers on a budget
