Marriott Bonvoy Insiders’ Favorite Hotel Lounges Let You Unwind or Get to Work in Comfy Style

Membership in Marriott Bonvoy has many perks, and one of the most inviting is access to exclusive hotel lounges around the world. Properties with Executive Lounges or M Clubs offer three tiers of Elite members — Platinum, Titanium and Ambassador — complimentary access to the spaces. Other member levels and guests may book a room on an executive floor to get access to lounge benefits.

Designed to be both cozy and stylish, these lounges can serve as additional living spaces, co-working spots or more private dining areas. Typical offerings include a complimentary buffet breakfast, as well as snacks and beverages throughout the day. Most include a TV, library and business center, and some even have perks like a bar, fireplace and/or the option of an a la carte menu.

Marriott Bonvoy’s social team recently polled our Insiders to find out which hotel lounges they consider the best of the best — and while their top picks span the globe, each lounge manages to make members feel completely at home in a destination.

As always, check for travel restrictions and closures before planning your trip.
