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.

...Marriott said that itís new security, 2nd name canít be added after the reservation are made.
So he's figuring it out.
Historically (and oddly), the certificateís AH status was linked to the reservation - even when the booking was allowed to be made under a 3rd party name. I think part of the problem is that the certificate is linked to the AHís MR# ó so they canít swap it for a different MR#.

You can reach out to the property in advance (or at check-in) to ask if can Honor your status/benefits, and while it usually works, it is a ymmv. And now they are not allowing 3rd party bookings, so I guess the buyer will have to be added as an additional guest, which can get tricky Inítl.
Can someone summarize how to make the reservation so that the buyer can get the room without the account holder present? (It probably should be added to Wiki. I will be happy to do so once I have the answer).
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

I recall reading a while back on DDF that Marriott reps. were saying that the primary guest was needed to check-in. If you have experience actually doing this without a problem, I guess that should be satisfactory... Thanks.
