I am staying a total of 11 nights at two resorts in Hawaii and I used points for 10 nights and cash for one night.  I am being told that my first stay of 4 nights do not qualify because I used all  points.  I am also being told that if I used points and cash they would qualify??? Doesn't make sense to me and I am trying to get Marriott to direct me to that language in their policy.  I do see that if I used a rewarding event such as a free night certificate it would not qualify and that is understandable.   Any help or insight into this situation would be much appreciated#promotional elite nights
