This promotion could be one of the last MegaBonus promotions for this collection of their properties. They are currently in the midst of acquiring the Starwood group of hotels. It remains to be seen what will happen with promotions of this type after a mega-merger of this size. The travel forums are full of whispers about whether or not the merger will go through, with many travelers still hoping that Marriott and Starwood decide to go their separate ways and remain independent entities. Before Marriott won the bidding war for Starwood, China’s Anbang Insurance Group had been a contender for the hotel group.
