Reward point redemption limited to "standard" rooms

Discussion created by bet17 on Jan 15, 2017

An important clarification not made clear with the Marriott Terms and Conditions:

Reward points can ONLY be used to reserve STANDARD rooms.  Hotels are not obligated to offer suites and upgraded rooms for booking with points.

This makes me rethink whether a 2% cash back credit card is actually more useful than the Marriott credit
