First of all, this is my first post here and I am new to the site. I've recently reviewed my last years worth of stays, I noticed that I've earned more points with my stays at Fairfields than stays at the more expensive hotels such as Courtyards, TownePlace and Residence Inns. Does anybody have a reason for this? Thank You.
Congratulations for getting your first of many more to come posts!
Your contributions are appreciated.
Like you, I stay at FF the most. Reason? They are available in areas I travel the most, The MidWest. They are handy and I enjoy the breakfast that is light.

On the Marriott home page, go to the Marriott Rewards heading and that will explain how you can earn points. According to that, you earn 10 points for every US dollar spent at Fairfield Inn and Courtyard (room rate only) and 5 points for every US dollar spent at Residence Inn and TownPlace Suites. Enjoy using your points.
Welcome to the Insiders!
We all share your question regarding point values that are less at these locations but I am not aware of any explanation factor other than 'that's what the terms and conditions' are. It's especially aggravating if staying at a Courtyard since their price points are higher than some full service Marriotts and they (for the most part) also offer no free breakfast to Elite members.
