Keep in mind that it's usually a pretty full night when no award space is available. They have little incentive to accommodate.
In the end I just reserved the next level room, at a cost of about $75 for the upgrade ( which is a joke, bec. the only diff. bet. them is a few feet ).
When I got to the hotel, I asked if there were any standard rooms available, and they said there was one room left, which they have to us, and saved my money.

Goo for you. I guess it's a YMMV on hotel level.

I have a reservations for Marriott GIG with NO status for 40K per night, is there a way I can transfer my points to my friend who is Marriott gold or some how add my friend who is Marriott Gold to my reservations and get some kind of upgrade?.

I'M also Hilton Diamond and SPG Gold I think, any status matches?

Thanks-

Marriot does allow transferring points to another member. Not sure about fees, if any.

Is it better to book the Renaissance Hotel in Tel aviv for 35k points per night or $225? Trying to figure out the value of Marriott points. Thanks

imho, you can get more value from 35k than $225

Anyone know of way to search for Marriot Hotels by region like on Starwoods website? Trying to figure out options around Big Sur...

The Park Ridge Marriott up near Monsey has an indoor pool. Not sure how nice it is considered.

I need 85 points (not 8500 -- just 85) to get to a reward level that I'm trying to book.  I no longer have the CCs and don't want to transfer 1,000 UR.  Is there any easy way to get a quick 85-100 points?
