Most of us earn Category 4 and Category 5 certificates each year and sometimes have difficulties in using them because the hotels we would really like to use them at are in a Higher category.  I have an idea for Marriott Rewards that I think would be a great benefit for its members.  My idea would be to allow members to use points in addition to their certificate when staying at a higher category hotel.  For example a Category 6 hotel requires 30,000 points for a free night and a Category 5 hotel requires 25,000 points.  If someone had a Category 5 certificate and wanted to stay at a Category 6 hotel they should be able to use the Category 5 Certificate and 5,000 points to cover the free night.  What do you think?
