We recently stayed at the JW Marriott in Las Vegas. The attached casino gave us a special rate. As result, we did not get credit for the "stay".
The only reason we accepted the special rate was because last year I called Marriot Rewards and was told that you will not get credit for the "stay" if you book thru a third party ie; Travelocity, Expedia etc. BUT that getting special rate thru attached casino will get you credit for the "stay".
Disappointed. Why the change in this ruling? Thx.
