Can I book a Marriott room from my account for a family member? I won’t be staying with them

I usually call the actual hotel after I book and make sure their name is on the room and they can get a key.

This is the way. It’s also necessary for them to be able to check in without you.

Yes

Anything to note while booking?

Can OPs guests use the benefits like free breakfast etc assuming OPs has a platinum or higher status?

You can't do it directly from the Bonvoy app. But you can call the booking line directly and tell them that you are booking under your account for a guest (especially if you're using points). A bit anachronistic, but that's how it is for now 🤷

(1/2) I started a new job less than a month ago at a large firm with a significant pay increase. I work remotely- which is a special arrangement. They paid for my travel to their headquarters for in-person training. After interacting with my manager and some of the attorneys, I feel like I made a mistake. Manager is demeaning and rude. A bunch of the attorneys dropped not so subtle hints that people who work from home are causing all kinds of problems. I don’t know what to do.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.
