Over a half million Marriott points earned before retiring. Have been trying for two years without success to use Marriott points at Hilton Head Resort - Monarch or Ocean Side. Will Hilton Head Resorts be made available for those of us who have been loyal longtime customers of Marriott?
It is unlikely that the Marriott you want, if it has not in the past, be available. My long time experience with Marriott Rewards program is that you have to go off season to high demand places or go to lesser desired locations. If the hotel is close to full or getting high dollar for reservations, they are unlikely to be letting you use your points there. Also, we usually plan at least nine months or more in advance to try and secure hotels. The longer you plan ahead, and flexibility with dates, we have found, the more likely you are to secure what you want.
