Help! What are the best Denver Marriott/SPG hotels for a weekend stay on points? Thanks!

I am so much more ambitious than my spouse. I am always thinking of ways to invest, to improve self, and best career moves. I make 40 percent more than spouse and i’ve made major career upward moves during this pandemic. I make all travel arrangements for us. My spouse who is an intelligent ivy leaguer, however, knows he wants to change his job (low pay/satisfaction) but doesn’t try to apply. I feel like sometimes he has Peter Pan syndrome (he’s 38). I hope things will improve as he ages.

I am a field marketer and I cover 12 states and travel a lot for my job. Our HQ is in NJ and I live in Denver. My manager for the second for put a surprise calendar invite to go to NJ for 4 days without discussing dates with the team to see if we were available.

I stood up and said; we need to be asked our availability vs expecting us to leave our family for 4 full days without consideration. Am I right or wrong here? Do company’s own our evenings?

I feel this is crossing a boundary.
