I am trying to figure out how Marriott Rewards points are allocated at hotel stays as well as for rewarding event (I will post separately on that in the appropriate threads). My last two stays were at the the following two hotels:
* Toulouse airport, 4 nights, ~$450 bill, 4063 base points awarded
* Copenhagen, 3 nights, ~$2,800 bill (incl a conference room rental), 1272 base points awarded
Why so few points from the latter given the much higher total bill? How exactly are points computed? I would have thought some formula based on the bottom line spend, but clearly not the case here.
Thanks very much for any enlightenment!
