Has anyone ever hosted a hotel block with Marriott and gotten points? I have a 20 room block for my wedding and was wondering if I get points for it

Yes. I'm currently going through the same. Ask for everything as part of the negotiation. Circumstantially, my block is with IHG and I'm received triple points on revenue brought in through my block. This is also a low-hanging fruit in various wedding podcasts my fiance has listened to. Should be very easy to ask for/receive.

Yes! I actually didn’t know about it until it was deposited into my account. Not a ton of points, but it was something!

Yes. Make it part of your negotiation. I got points for every person that stayed as well as meeting & event spend.

Don’t have any direct experience, but if feasible you’ve gotta include it in negotiation/talks with the hotel, as normally you can only earn points on up to 3 rooms including your own.

I got 28k points for my room block. It‘s listed in the contact you signed.

Did this for a Bat-mitzvah. There were a number of screw-ups (wrong deserts, missing hors d'oeuvres) and I complained. Rather than a refund, the hotel offered to double my points.

Why do boomers assume that everyone wants to continue on the corporate rat race forever?

His response was “have some confidence!” I’m 3 years into this slog and I feel like I’ve already wasted too much of my life staring at excel sheets for 80 hours a week waiting for someone to tell me I’m ready to be promoted and get a raise. The money ain’t worth it.

How hard do you push interns? An intern told me that a task took 4 solid hours, which seemed very high for the output provided. I checked the file version history, and there are a few 30-60 min breaks, and 80% of the task was obviously done in the hour before a check-in deadline. How, and how harshly should I push them on this discrepancy? Before you ask, this was a data transformation task that happens 100% in the same file, with no need to Google, use other files, ask for help, etc.
