A mountain resort hotel in southern California has joined Marriott Autograph Collection properties. Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa is located at an elevation of 5,100 feet in the San Bernadino Mountains about 100 miles east of LAX. This area is a mountain getaway resort within two hours drive of the beaches of Santa Monica and Venice.
Lake Arrowhead Resort originally opened in 1923. Scenes from some Hollywood movies have been filmed at the hotel. The resort has undergone a $26 million restoration of 162 guest rooms, 11 suites and the Spa of the Pines. Dining includes BIN189 for lakeside fine dining and Mountain Aroma’s coffee bar and pastries.

This property enters Marriott Rewards as a category 6 award night at 30,000 points per night or 120,000 points for a 5-night stay.
Marriott websites already allow reservations for Lake Arrowhead Resort. I checked a sample midweek (cheaper rates) Tuesday and Wednesday night stay for May 14-16, 2013.
King Lake view room + 1,000 Marriott Rewards bonus points = $178.00 per night. 2-night stay = $463.72 after tax and resort fee.
There is a $20 resort fee at Lake Arrowhead Resort that includes wifi and parking.
An even better rate for a King Bed, Lake View room is AAA rate including breakfast for $188.10. A 2-night stay after tax and resort fees = $485.33. Breakfast at the hotel for an additional $12 is a great added value.
If you are willing to forego the Lake View, then AAA will get you into the hotel with a mountain view room for as low as $153 per night. This works out to $205.11 per night after tax and resort fee = $410.22 all-in for two night stay.
