So two questions in one....I am traveling to Washington DC in early December to provide a bone marrow donation at Georgetown Medical Center. My trip is covered, but I am wanting to extend my stay one day (hotel at my expense), so I can at least do a little sight seeing while I am there. We are Gold, and we have two E-certs for cat. 1-4 that expire in March. As you can imagine, there are NO Cat. 1-4 hotels in DC. I called the Elite Cust. Service to see if I might be able to combine my two certs into one worthwhile one or upgrade the cert with points. I explained the situation to them, but no go. So I guess I am stuck using some of my points we were saving for Hawaii to get a good hotel in DC. Okay, finally to my questions:
- Recommendations on a good hotel in DC for sightseeing as we will not have a car.
- E-certs, the agent led me to believe they do extend the expiration date sometimes, but not until they are closer to expiring. Has anyone had experience with this? I hate to gamble & wait until they are close to expiring, but honestly I have no use for a Cat. 1-4 between now & March....
- Also E-certs, the Marriott account is in my husbands name and the cust. service told me we could only ever use them if he was traveling with me - really???
