Wondering about the Marriott Bonvoy point earnings. I was looking through hotels that was listed on the Marriot Bonvoy app to South Korea and found a hotel in a convenient location called Nest Hotel. The reservation I made was through the hotel's website however and not the Marriot website. To my knowledge, booking through the hotel website or the Marriot app can both earn you points. However, when I spoke to the hotel, the hotel would not allow my reservation to be recognized to earn points saying even though I made the reservation directly with them.
I am confused. Is this correct that I can only earn points through making reservations through the Marriott app?
