Marriott has offered discounted rates for airline employees’ leisure travel for years but recently made these rates eligible under the Bonvoy guest loyalty program.
Marriott International Global Airline Leisure program rates are discounted 15% to 25% and are, previously excluded, eligible for elite qualifying nights, tier benefits, and points.

Le Meridien Bangkok
The airline leisure rate is the lowest, but you should always check any other discounted rate offers you are eligible for.
These rates are effectively valid for stays for all airline employees, not only the cockpit and cabin crews. I would assume that all airlines are Marriott “Global Airline Partners” and not only those with whom they have a Bonvoy partnership (redeeming points to miles), as the previously provided list by Marriott indicates.
Here are the short terms and conditions:
Rates are not valid for business travel. Limited to one (1) room per qualified guest per night. No limit to the number of nights booked with the exception of availability. Airline issued employee identification is required at time of check-in at hotel. A limited number of rooms are available and blackout dates or other restrictions may apply. Rates do not include resort fees, service fees, taxes, incidentals or additional per room, per night charges that may be imposed. Offer may not be combined with other discounts or promotions.
