Meeting planners may now also earn up to 50,000 points by earning up to three Marriott Rewards points per dollar spent, or earn one airline mile per dollar spent on business expenses.

Gaylord Hotels are the 14th brand to join the Marriott Rewards portfolio. In addition to the three current locations, a fourth location, the Gaylord Opryland, in Nashville, Tennessee, will offer Marriott Rewards points and benefits starting in early 2013.
