Can someone remind me how to book a Marriott reservation for a family member under my membership but I would not actually stay at the hotel. Do they have to be an authorized user to check in?

Book it the reservation then call hotel and have ur family member added to the reservation. I usually say my family member is arriving before me, can they check in

Thanks! I think this is exactly what I used to do and completely forgot since I haven’t traveled in 1.5 years…

Just to be clear, they are not supposed to get your benefits (assuming you have status) and you’re not supposed to get the points/night credit per the T&Cs but I’ve never seen a hotel enforce that I had to be there. I always wait until before check in when the in app chat is available. I chat with the front desk and ask them to add whoever to the reservation, take a screenshot and send it to whoever is checking in.

I take that back, the JW Marriott Essex enforced that I had to be there for lounge access when my wife checked in without me. Luckily I was actually going to be there so I cleared it up with the front desk.

You can say in the comments the name of the person that will be checking in.

Advice needed: my stepmom pays for our vacation every year but she is a monster. I say we all pay our own way and dissolve her hold. The others say just deal with it for a free vacation.

So I said Fine everyone pay next year and they folded. I hate it there. But they are my family.
