Marriott : Short 5 nights of Titanium
« on: November 22, 2020, 11:07:09 AM »

Maxed out with elite credits from Bonvoy credit cards and platinum choice 5 night amenity, I am still 5 elite night credits short of Titanium and was wondering if anyone has done a "ghost/phantom" booking (using points for a stay and not physically showing up at the hotel) ? If so, would you advise doing only domestically and being honest with the hotel ? Thanks

I didn't notice any difference between Platinum and Titanium
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

can book hotels for others and add as guest? You can also do at a local cheap hotel if convenient
