Minimum # nights for using points?

I've never had this experience before . . .  .  I was trying to book a few nights at Hotel Punta Islita in Costa Rica.  The system allows me to book 4 nights on points, but not 2 or 3 nights.  Must pay cash for fewer than 4 nights, and then it only offers me suites not the standard room. 

Can anyone provide some insight into this policy or how to get around it?  Marriott has opened up a ticket and I am waiting to hear if they can resolve it. Evidently the local hotel itself makes that decision.  Interesting strategy if they are trying to get me to stay longer because this will actually send me to a different hotel entirely!
