When did the Marriott Surfside in Florida increase category from 4 to 5? I'm pretty sure it was a category 4 earlier in the year, and it's not in their list of 2019 category changes?

For 2019 changes, see: https://viewfromthewing.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/MAKCOM19001_Category_Update_Members_Site_EN.pdf

And the internet archive shows them as having been a category 4 as of 9/14/2019 (see: https://web.archive.org/web/20190914220049/https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/miaxb-residence-inn-miami-beach-surfside/)

Can a Marriott hotel change categories without any advance notice?

Where? I've been looking and couldn't find anything on it. And it must have happened recently-- in the last month or so-- because as of mid-September, it was still a category 4.

How can they conduct business this way? What if someone redeemed a nights and flights package for a certain category, especially now that they cannot be upgraded?

I looked for it an couldn't find it. It's irrelevant anyway I guess. I will try contacting Marriott about it anyway, but like Dan said, I guess I just got #Bonvoyed.

It's not the only location.

I once mentioned another one and people got offended.
Always praying for delayed baggage.
