My girlfriend and I want to use my 200,000 points to stay at a nice resort of some kind. We were looking at St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands but it seems like that specific hotel has been unavailable. What else could we do? I honestly don't think we have that many options.
Additionally, it is pretty upsetting that you cannot use points towards all-inclusive packages. I'm also 5 nights away from gold status but will not be making another business trip before we take the vacation. Is there any way Marriot would bump me up so I can receive gold status benefits?
