I booked a flight/hotel package via Expedia for a first trip to Paris. Did a lot of thinking over what hotel and being a Marriott Platinum Elite member, thought I'd go with the Renaissance ADT. Now being told that i can't add Rewards number if you book with Expedia...
Wished I knew this before hand, probably would've gone with a more historic, Parisian, romantic hotel...Does anyone know if it can be done so as to gain the benefits of being a loyal Marriott member?
Thanks for any help or info.
premster, do you have a Marriott confirmation number? If so, you might want to try logging into your Marriott account to attempt to add your rewards number. Once logged into your account click on "My Reservations", then "View All Reservations", then scroll to the bottom and you will see a box will you can look up a reservation by inputting the confirmation number. This may help in being able to add your rewards number.

Below is the language found in the Terms and Conditions area for Marriott Rewards (item #8 under Earn Points). I'm not sure if the area that I highlighted in bold applies to your stay. I would call customer support and see if it could work.
With that being said, I stayed on a package deal in Hawaii a couple of years back and when I checked in I handed them my plat card and she said I will get that added Mrs. Madmax (Mrs. Pluto didn't want you to feel called out). So I got the points even though it is not the policy per se. I believe it has to do with the property you stay at whether they want to allow it or maybe just the clerk checking you in... anyway I got lucky because I had 5 nights that would have been wasted otherwise because I didn't read all the rewards rules
I really think it is another one of those **** shoots we seem to get in with no consistency between hotels as to what you can expect.
