vSo, I got a Certificate for a free night Cat 1-5. Currently, we are in a qualifying hotel for a week (we check out Saturday). We have a ton of traveling to do over the next three weeks and every extra penny counts right now. So, I have a few questions.
1) We will have been in this hotel a week on Saturday and in such got an extended stay rate. If I apply the certificate to this stay will it change the rate of my other nights?
2) Can I ask to apply the certificate in the middle of a stay like this?
3) In the next three weeks we will be staying at cat 6's and above. Can we use certificate plus cash at these places or certificate plus points?
Thanks in Advance
First the easiest answer, #3. No you cannot use the certificate at anything above a category 5 property. There is no allowance for using extra points or cash to do so. Cat 1-5 only.
The other two questions are a bit trickier. Check with the front desk. If they can't help, call the Marriott Rewards customer service number. I've never tried to do this, but it seems like a reasonable request. I suspect if you get the right person, either at the hotel or on the phone, you might get exactly what you want. It's a bit out of the ordinary, but the best thing to do is ask nicely. The worst they could say is no.
I was pretty sure on the cat 6 and ups. Im afraid even if they let me use it that it will change my rates for the stay and this town is packed for the Miss Mississippi Pageant...I don't want to lose my rate, people are paying double per night than what I am booked for.

#1 &2: Since you are already staying at this property, you would have to check with the front desk to see if they would be willing to change the reservation. Once a member is checked into a property, we cannot modify a stay, so this inquiry would be at the discretion of the hotel.
What a fun experience for your daughter!! You can tell she is really enjoying it.
