Not sure how common this is at other Marriott properties, but currently staying at a Ritz internationally and be sure to ask them if you can earn points when dinning at their restaurants. They will scan your mobile card in the app. I was completely unaware of this but it seems to be around 1k points for each $100 you spend.

Staying at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain, AZ for a long weekend. Before coming, I called and asked what the COVID restrictions were, I was given vague information and once I arrived realized that the restrictions were more stringent than described, and the only restaurant open for dinner service on hotel property is a mile away, near the golf course. When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....
