Use Marriott Points for 2 Roundtrip Etihad Business Class Tickets + 5 Nights at NY EDITION Hotel

Written by Charlie

Use your Marriott hotel points to get a package that includes 2 roundtrip Etihad business class tickets and 5 nights in a NYC hotel! This auction ends in just a few days and has a lot of huge value to it – if you can make the dates and departure work for you.

This one starts in Abu Dhabi, but if you are to find yourself in that part of the world next month, this could be a nice way to get some great business class tickets at a pretty cheap price – points wise. In fact, you may be able to redeem these hotel points at a ridiculously low rate for the business class tickets and hotel stay!

The hotel in NYC with this package

SPG Moments has had Emirates packages available in the past and now the Marriott Moments is getting in on the Middle East airline packages with a Etihad offering.

Similar to the Emirates packages, this one will start in the UAE so it will not be very every one. But, because of the starting airport, this could end up being a very great deal on Etihad business class. Here is what this package offers:

  • Round-trip Business Class tickets from Abu Dhabi to New York JFK with Etihad Airways (Departs September 6, 2018 – Returns September 11, 2018)
  • Five-night stay at The New York EDITION (Check-in September 6, 2018 – Check-out September 11, 2018)
  • VIP Hospitality Lounge Access tickets with backstage access to New York Fashion Week between the dates September 6-11, 2018 (Dress Code Applies)
  • Gift of Etihad Loungewear exclusively created by Emirati designers
  • Experience is for two people

Yes, this is for the New York Fashion Week but you don’t have to be a Fashion Week fan to take advantage of what might be an amazing travel deal on this package. The flights alone for 2 people come in at over $10,000 for the roundtrip tickets! Next, you throw in the hotel stay and you are looking at another $3,600 for the 5 nights. For just the travel alone, this package has a cost of almost $14,000!

I will not try to guesstimate the Fashion Week tickets as this is definitely outside of my area :), but even if you skip out on that, you are still getting one huge package.

Here are the details for actually bidding on this auction:

Yes, the Marriott and SPG programs are now together but if you are still thinking in terms of SPG points, that means the bidding is currently at just 40,666 Starpoints – for 2 business class tickets on Etihad! Of course, it will go up. But, if you were to win, you could try flying Emirates over and, if you got this auction at a low enough price, you could even skip the return leg if you live in the US!
