Help appreciated - Points Advance - points needed has gone up since booking

I'm sure I'm not the only person who has had this. 


Back in Dec 2018 (not sure exactly when), I booked a 7 night stay in Jan 2020 at a St Regis back when the room was 60k a night. 7 nights, inc one free = 360k points. 


I've been collecting the points across credit cards and stays so that I am able to redeem the stay before Jan 2020.


I now have 370k points. 


I called Marriott earlier today to redeem and am now being told I need 540k (or thereabouts - not sure of the exact figure) points to redeem. I read somewhere that I should hang up and call again, but I don't want to keep doing this. 


Does anyone on these forums have experience in how to make this happen for us?
