I find it hard to believe Marriott has a policy against bringing your own food to consume yourself in your own room. Even more so on a special diet, singling out only kosher. Possibly the new policy is that they will not store or heat up your food for you and this agent is confused.

Read the email again he seems confused.
I posted here around Sukkos time my feedback from a stay in a Marriott in Greece. They told me that contrary to prior years they have a policy not to store external food in their kitchen during the pandemic. They offered to store in the Bell Boy's fridge, which is what we did.

But I didn't ask in advance, I just showed up with the food

Looks like you can fit at least 25 packs of Aarons Deli + 15 packs of muenster cheese and still have some space in the fridge for milk.

Im more concerned about them giving us a hard time after they warned us . As others mentioned and as weve done in the past freeze all the food including fridge items, milk etc. pack in a polar beer cooler and once at the desination can keep things cold with ice from the ice machine.
When i was there recently our butler refilled our cooler with ice everyday

No longer need negative PCR if you're fully vaxxed. Curious if this includes the 1 dose J&J

From what I've read on the FT thread, they haven't yet released the 2022 rooms.

They probably will, people hog all the potential dates and then cancel later because why not!! We should open a thread to coordinate between people who hog and people who need at least on this forum😝

People could resell to each other their confirmed stay.
When people cancel their bookings it doesn't necessarily go back into award inventory, so keeping the existing one and changing the name to the buyer make more sense IMHO

could run into legal problems possibly? And then people might start hogging dates and charging more to make money! I was thinking more like a gemach 😉

y cant people just be nice and post when they want to cancel and let the other person transfer that amount of points into their account and change the name of the original booking
