I have only been a Marriott Rewards Insider for a short time and I have been trying to find a discussion on, how to find dates rates without calling the hotel directly. Emails sometimes work, but then sometimes they don't get back to you. Whenever I cruise and have been on an island before, I like to visit Marriott's instead of doing an excursion. Also, if I am at the airport and my connection is not for many hours I also call the Marriott and ask for a day rate. This does take more time than I would like. My thought is the Marriott should have a category for overnight packages and one for day packages. Please let me know if there is a better way of getting a day rate than what I am doing.
