That's an interesting question. I tried to find an answer but came up empty. Give Marriott support a call and let us know what they say.

What is the best way to find available hotels that aren't listed on the website?

Can you explain, why wouldn’t they be listed on the marriott website?

I couldn't find this question addressed anywhere.

Is there any sort of penalization, official or unofficial, for holding a second room with the intention of cancelling it shortly before a stay, in order to increase the chances it's available for a potential upgrade?

I have two rooms booked at residence inn, one standard room on points and one paid two bedroom suite. I'm about 90% sure I'm going to cancel the paid reservation. Of course even if the room is available I may not get upgraded. But will the hotel notice I did that and get annoyed that I held the room for no reason (even if I could rationalize it my mind).

TIA
