Being a hotel loyalty member has its perks - outside of the guest room upgrades and points toward free nights.
Marriott Rewards just launched their Facebook game called "What's Your Travel Type?" that helps members discover their "unique travel personality" simply by visiting Facebook.com/MarriottRewards and liking the page. You don't have to be a member of Marriott Rewards to play.
Once you are a Marriott Rewards Facebook fan, you'll choose your favorite option from pairs of activities to discover your "true travel personality" and then share it with your Facebook friends. Your travel personality will coincide with one of six Marriott brands that embodies your travel type, and you'll be entered to win a dream vacation with that brand.
The game runs through Aug. 31, 2012.
You can play the game once a day, every day for the month of August.
You can vary your answers to enter the drawings for multiple travel types and brand vacations.
