I just had another 2-day stay at the Crystal Gateway Marriott on March 12th-14th.
I booked the reservation weeks ago, and as usual, I checked last Monday on any updated room rates for the week.
I put in the AAA rate and a rate of $90 per night popped up and I booked it and canceled the old one.
It always pays to check room rates for the hotel that you plan to be in for the current week because the low rates may show up.
Special rates such as the MEB, AAA, and/or checking the list of room rates on the Marriott website to see if a Marriott Rewards special rate shows up can be the difference between paying $20-$50 or more!
