Checked in at a Marriott in NYC and got stuck in the elevator for 45 min (firemen had to come free us).

Seems like a good opportunity to request points. Thoughts on how many to ask for?

Pretty sure they should charge you the day rate for having a second room.

I think this is a legit reason to ask for points/compensation.

They initially gave him 50k, but he finessed. Said something along the lines of being afraid for his life to ever be on an elevator again

I would expect them to give you points without asking. Have seen them do so for smaller issues. This is definitely worth a free night. If you didn't raise hell at front desk, raise hell in an email.

Just ask for compensation for the "inconvenience"

Be specific . Ask for points. I think at least one night equivalent in that hotel or 50k

This happened to me and 3 colleagues. Initially received 25k points and then I requested, and received, 75K points which equated to our 3 night stay in points.

Which marriot in NYC? So I avoid it

If you had WiFi then you were working (or watching YouTube) and because you were in a confined space without distractions you were probably even more productive than normal.

It was 45 minutes... shit happens... it’s not the hotel’s fault. You deserve nothing IMO.

Seems silly to ask for points.

Yea, OK lol

This happened to me in Memphis for about 10 mins. Got 40k points

My partner just got his first job offer in Canada (Toronto) as an Account Manager Technical Sales in oil and gas sector. They required 2-5 years sales experience.

Based on glassdoor, it seems like this is the very bottom of their range. Does this sound fair just because he has no Canadian experience?
