I found a much lower rate through Hotels.com - will I be able to get points for my 5 night stay even though I did not book directly through Marriott's site?
No, sorry. You can only get points on nights when booking direct. The best thing you can do is book on Marriott and turn in a LNF.
Using the 'Look No Further' rate - All you need to know+Tips
You could get even lower!
Basically Marriott has this Best Rate Guarantee HOWEVER, it is really important you read fistuk's guide. Just to make sure you know the rules. He has a link of the Terms and Conditions.
Awesome insight, seatexan!! Thank you!!
