Nah. I do it all the time. Book in your name and add them to the reservation as secondary

Same here, just make sure the hotel has the secondary name on file. I’d confirm with them twice too — I’ve had several times where my parents showed up the check in, and they had to call me to confirm. Took only a few minutes, but an unnecessary nuisance.

reservation going on at the same time somewhere else and the hotel would know what I'm up to. Anyone had this situation before?

Same I’ve done that many times before as well

If it is spg, you do not need to be in the travel party. I gave my spg number to friends when they were traveling to Hawaii and they were upgraded to an ocean view room and I wasn’t even traveling with them.

Just know they don’t get t 100% of the time. I did this once and SPG said I had to check in to the desk when I arrived if we were going to get the platinum benefits. Sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesnt

move some pts from/to marriott & spg. book yours with spg and your parents with marriott. you get great statuses for both anyway

Its not required. Just call them beforehand and inform. I do this many times while I am traveling for business family members can stay in hotel at another city on my points.

You can also have your parents pretend to be your personal assistants...that's worked for me in the past
