Is it common for Marriott Properties to immediately charge a credit card deposit, even for platinum members?

Williamsburg Lodge, Virginia (Autograph) evidently runs an immediate credit card charge/ deposit when reserving a room for all rates.  Is this common for Marriott Properties?


I found this out when I got my Marriott credit card bill and saw the charge.  The hotel said I was a no show and I had to provide my Marriott cancellation number to get them to remove the deposit charge since I'd canceled through the web 3 weeks previously. I've never been charged a deposit before, though I have seen pending charges.  Glad I saved that cancellation email.  Thanks!
