I coordinate corporate events and fly in 40 guests to Southern California about 3 times per month. I recently made the move to Marriott hotels and I am fairly new to the rewards. ( I was loyal to Hyatt properties for 15 years). I have a few questions:
1-The company I work for pays for our guests lodging. I receive a cap of 50,000 per event. Is the 50,000 negotiable? We typically spend about $25,000.00 per stay, which would equal to 75,000 points.
2- I receive rewards points through Rewarding Events, do my guests also receive points for their stay? Can I receive points for my stay in addition to the Rewarding Points?
3- Depending on my experience with Marriott I might renew the contract for next year. Any tips on negotiating the contract? Perks I might be able to negotiate etc..
