The app has each suite listed separately, sort of.

Hotels aren't allowed to keep a number for last minute paid stays?

FYI, Marriott T&C dosnt say anything about this.

Also, I checked in at approximately 11:30 PM.

When I pay for a room I expect to get service as per Marriott's T&C.

If you paid cash, that's not a point redemption

I'm guessing there's a lot more to this story.
Same, although I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't.

That's what it looks like when workers don't get paid and hotel shuts abruptly.

I have a 7 night bonvoy certificate which expires this week. Since it has been extended a year ago they are unwilling to extended again, only to give me 5000 points for it. Any suggestions?

5k points? There is a reserved amount for cancellation depending on category.

Try HUCA and see if they will extend it again.

Applied 5 SNA. Was never confirmed into a suite that I selected. SNA's showed pending on my reservation and never returned. Marriott says it will take 6-8 weeks to have them returned.

Travel with kids is not vacation, it's a business trip.

Au contraire, I imagine this is exactly the type of post one would write on vacation.

Just imagine having to spend your vacation compiling the 283 date combinations that work on a NYC-TLV via Nambia flight deal and then having to deal with 64 commenters asking if it works from TLV-NYC too and 19 who want to know whether it can be booked with UR when both were answered in big red letters in the post.
