Have you had issues booking a Marriott reward stay for someone other than your immediate family? Do you just note them as guests?

No, just use the in app chat feature the day before check in, tell them to add their name, screenshot and youre done

This isn’t technically allowed if you aren’t also staying fyi

US- no issues. International- haven’t tried

Update - I called Marriott and they allowed me to gift the stay to a family member. Can't do it in the app but they have an override code they can use

Call the service line the next day and ask them to add your family member as a guest to the room. Just tell them you’ll be arriving separately if they ask.

So, the big thing with booking on points for someone else is they do need ID and a card for incidentals. There are some hotels that won't ask for a credit card, but every hotel should, especially if you're not there to check them in. It helps prevent fraud.

Trying to set family expectations and would love thoughts on 2 things. 1. How long after baby will I be ready for visitors beyond our parents? I’m thinking a few weeks. 2. Our 3 grandmothers are 1-3 hour flights away (3 diff places) and cannot travel. When will we be ready to take baby to see them? I’m thinking 4-6 months but that would also be flu/RSV season. Can’t predict the future but family is already talking about trips and I want to set expectations and do what is best for baby. TIA!!

Can we talk about the logic behind paying $2400 a week for a travel nurse but being unwilling to even give your staff nurses annual cost of living raises? Maybe if you’d pay your staff nurses well you wouldn’t have to spend $2400+ on a travel nurse.
