Marriott Luxury hotels offer
Marriott are offering 20% off or more when you stay three or more nights at participating hotels and resorts from their luxury brands — including St. Regis®, The Luxury Collection® or W Hotels®. This applies to selected hotels in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
In the UK, if you fancy a country break, The Langley, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Buckinghamshire is included – read our review here. There’s also the London Edition too.
If you are looking for a break soon, Crete is a possibility for the green list and the Blue Palace, a Luxury Collection Resort and Spa, Crete is included. (see picture above)
For further in the future, the iconic Hotel Danieli, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Venice, or The St. Regis Mauritius Resort look amazing choices.
It’s worth trying our partners, Debonair, to see if you can get any additional benefits if you don’t have high status. They can usually offer free upgrades, breakfast and early check-in/late check out on many luxury Marriott group properties.
Hyatt 30% off plus free breakfast
World of Hyatt members can now enjoy 30% or more off room rates as well as a 20% discount on dining and complimentary daily breakfast when booking between May 3 and May 10, 2021 for qualifying stays between June 1 and September 26, 2021. Stays must be two nights or more at participating Hyatt hotels across Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa. It’s free to join World of Hyatt here.
Stays can be cancelled up to 72 hours in advance without penalty.
Options included are the Churchill in London which I reviewed here, the new swanky Great Scotland Yard, Andaz London Liverpool Street which Paul recommends, and the Hyatt Regency Malta.

Heathrow T3 reopening delayed
Heathrow staff expecting to return to Heathrow’s Terminal 3 from 17 May have been informed that the reopening has been postponed. I’m not surprised given the uncertainty around the green list which is yet to be published. Plus it would have been a tall order to get everything moved over in a short space of time.
It is now expected to be late May or early June. The earliest it could reopen is 24 May. Virgin Atlantic and Delta were due to be the first airlines to move back to T3, hopefully, to reopen the wonderful Virgin Clubhouse lounge.
