Get the credit card. Gives you automatic 14 nights towards status. If you're platinum pay for hotel with the card and get 15 points per dollar.

If it's a smaller Marriott you can sometimes talk to the manager and get status/points if you promise to stay there throughout your entire project. It's how I got to platinum after 4 nights.

Also keep an ey on bonus point offers for staying certain amount of nights in a period on the website. Can easily make 20-30k points

Between the card and the challenges I made over 95k bonus points this year.

Spend >150 nights there a year they will love you.
