Has anyone run into the issue where the hotel will not give you qualifying elite nights if you book up to three rooms under your number and then pay for the rooms? I have always done this, and received the points, and elite nights, but recently I was told that is not how it is supposed to work. Marriott refused to give me nights for one third of my reservation, and that one of the rooms should not have qualified for elite nights, but did anyway. This just seems like another attempt to take away some perks, just like the all inclusive for points that was taken several years ago.
Has anyone else run into this before?
