What do you choose for your annual choice benefit from Marriott and why? I don’t need the night credits or a bed and none of my family/friends could really use silver elite status

I agree with the free night but it’s only for rooms up to 40,000 points so you can’t stay at the nicer properties.

Usually suite nights if I don't need the nights credit for next tier

Yes. They're only available for 1 calendar year, and not available for all brands (e.g., Ritz)

I’ve never been able to use a suite night - the free night is a better choice IMHO

I should end this year with 71 nights so will be using the extra 5 nights credited. Tried using the suite awards several times this year but told they were not available. Then when I checked in got upgraded each time anyway.

5 night credit at 50 nights and free night at 75 nights. One year i missed the deadline to choose so got defaulted into suite night awards. never again.

I believe that they don’t count for lifetime. Actually, I am not sure Platinum/Gold year counts as lifetime if you reach it with the 5 extra nights (this happens as well with double night promos)

Trying to book Hyatt with points for the first time but the room I wanted (21k points a night) is no longer available on the site. There’s one with 36k points a night but obviously way more expensive and not ideal

I feel like no but is there a way to book the 36k and then downgrade/get a refund if a 21k room becomes available again? Tried asking an agent but they just said they weren’t sure

If that’s the case should I just book the 36k or are the odds a 21k becomes available again high?
