Back in February we started off our 2021 series of looking at new hotels opening in Canada with what Marriott has planned and one of those nine hotels slated for this year has opened early! The Fairfield Inn & Suites Orillia was originally set to open on April 8 but it appears to have actually opened up this past weekend!

To celebrate the opening the hotel has a grand opening offer that awards 5,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy Points per stay until the end of April. Learn more about and book this offer here.
Here’s a look at a one night stay next week on April 8:
$99 for a one night stay where you will earn 5,000 bonus points which are worth $50! And that doesn’t include your base points or points from your credit card. That’s a good deal but there may be a deal breaker and that is Ontario’s lockdown that will come into effect on Saturday. I can’t find details as to whether hotels are affected by it but in any case I would hope that the hotel extends this bonus offer beyond the end of April due to this lockdown.
The Fairfield Inn & Suites Orillia is a Category 3 Hotel in the Marriott Bonvoy program which means a Standard award night costs 17,500 points, while Off Peak nights are 15,000 and Peak nights are 20,000. Since this hotel prices under 35,000 points per night you can use your Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card annual free night award at this property. You should also use that card to pay for stays at this hotel (or any Marriott hotel for that matter) as it earns 5 points per dollar spent on Marriott stays.
