What are "participating Marriott Rewards & SPG hotels"

What are "participating Marriott Rewards & SPG hotels?" The Marriott rewards folks use this phrase but never seem to define it. Are Marriott vacation club properties included? They have been in the past, but with separate ownership, now what? The issue here it whether or not credit card spending at vacation clubs and on their maintenance fees will continue to earn 5x or 6x points.
