Additional costs with Reward Points redemption.

We're staying at the Key largo Bay Marriott in the near future via Reward Points.  We also have to pay an additional $60 plus tax per night fee.  Is it common to have additional costs when using Points.  This doesn't seem reasonable to me.  Thanks.

    I have never had to pay a fee of any sort. I did pay for parking though. There seems to be variations with policies with possibly franchised owned or corporate owned properties?

    No, it is not.  Not to my knowledge or experience.  The only reasons I can think of for costs above and beyond are :  1.  paying for a room upgrade.  or 2.  paying a mandatory resort fee.  It would seem neither of these would apply to this situation.  I would give the property a call.

      Thanks for your help.  This reservation was made several months ago and an upgrade might have been requested.  This is likely the cause of the additional costs.

        still make the call.  usually when you simply request an upgrade, there is no addtl cost involved.  It's only when you pay for an upgrade up front to guarantee the upgrade.

    I had the chance but declined to pay additional cost for the Presidential Suite in Key West.  That was the only points room left
