For those that don't know how certificates work.

Seven night and five night certificates

1. Marriott certificates can be used for any reservation that can be booked with points. To search for reward availability simply go to marriott.com and check the box to search "using points".

Marriott hotels are divided into categories. (Cheapest being category one) below is a list of all the category 1-4 hotels  http://www.marriott.com/hotel-search/Category1.hotels.Category2.Category3.Category4.Category5/


2. A 5/7 night certificates must be used for 5/7 consecutive nights. The reservation cannot be split up.

3. In order to hold the room you need a credit card. Your card will be kept for incidentals and you won't be charged for the room.

4. Certificates can be gifted BUT the room needs to be booked under the account holders name and you will be added a secondary guest.

5. Gold or plat benefits depend heavily on the hotel. At check in you may or may not get an upgrade.

Questions on 5 or 7 nite Certs
If I use a Platinum level Cert for a stay, 7 or 5 nite, would I get the Platinum level benefits?
Also how would hotel with 'resort fees'  be handled?
More $ to seller to cover them up front or could I  pay at hotel once there?
  Thanks

Depends on the hotel and how slick you are

Resort fees are paid buy the buyer at the hotel to the hotel

if its hotel dependent (unknown variable), is there any reason to buy a more expensive 7 day cert from a titanium member vs silver, gold, platinum?

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

If I have a Marriott category 6, 7 night certificate nearing expiration, can I just convert it back to 165k Marriott points?
