Need 6 Marriott nights to titanium (spend doesn’t matter). 1 - would any hotel manager cut you a deal?

I found 10k per night in burbs of Chicago? 3 - would any cheap Marriott let me run this scam remotely? (Ie call Abilene Texas, check me in without my showing up)

Considering leaving my agency after just a couple months in pharma - feeling underutilized and stuck. My question: do I leave this stint off my resume entirely?
