I wanted to inquire if I am going to be able to redeem my rewards points for a booking that is already established. I reserved nights at the Marriott in Downtown Atlanta for Labor Day weekend through Passkey (this was the only way to book at the time for the convention). I joined Marriott rewards and got the credit card in anticipation of being able to use points accrued towards this trip. I would like to ensure that I will be able to use my points in this instance.
not sure I undertstand your question/circumstance. If you simply booked a room on Roomkey and now want to change it to a rewards stay, you could just first make sure a rewards room is available, book it, then cancel the room you booked thru roomkey. If you have a pre-paid, non-refundable res on Roomkey, you will ave a problem accomplishing your mission. Hope this helps.
Hi there and thanks for your input. This is a very busy weekend in Downtown Atlanta and the hotel is sold out. I've also paid a non-refundable deposit equal to one night's stay, so I'm partially locked in that way.
I suppose I'm asking if there is any way to retro-actively apply award points to a stay that is still several months away.
Shoeman has some great advice!
Are you Platinum? you could try for a Platinum "Overide", but it would be expensive!
Lastly, call the hotel directly, and ask for Guest relations, explain you situation, and "Keep you fingers crossed", you have nothing to lose!
Good luck! I really think you will get this resolved in a happy way!
