Can anyone inform me whether I should receive Rewards Points on food & drinks, even if I do not stay in the property itself, but just use the bar and/or restaurant. I know this is the case at Starwood and you do get points on F&B, even if not a hotel guest.
Looking forward receiving your reply.
as far as I know, only registered hotel guests get points for F&B charged to room, even if staying on points. I used to get points for F&B at Hyatt even if not a registered guest, but I think Hyatt did away with that perk a few years ago and I dont recall Marriott ever having such a perk. So in short, unless someone else has other info, no stay = no points for F&B charges. Hope that helps

Cara and I heard back from our team and it looks like ndn and stelzer001 are correct. In order to receive Marriott Rewards credit for restaurant, gift shop, and other qualified purchases at full-service properties, you must be an overnight guest at the hotel. These incidental charges would need to be billed to your room to ensure you receive credit. You can view the complete qualifications for earning stay credit at the following link:
