Using Southwest.com to book Marriott rooms

Hello - I recently booked a room for a few nights at a Fairfield Inn using southwest.com. I did it this way because they were offering bonus Rapid Rewards points. I understand that when rooms are booked through third party sites, then Marriott points and/or nights credit is not received. However, since Southwest is a Marriott business partner and not a discount booking site (I paid about 20% more for the room), I thought I'd ask if anyone had experience getting Marriott points when booking on Southwest.com. I did call the hotel directly to add my rewards number, but the person on the phone knew immediately that it was booked through a third party site and said that I "may or may not get point credit." Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
