When booking a Marriott room using points, do you still pay taxes and fees or is everything included?

Everything is typically included. Resorts might be only exception, where you still pay resort fees. Can't recall how it was handled when I stayed at the Cosmo in Las Vegas, which charges a resort fee.

In addition to the resort fees, parking isn't covered either.

Usually everything is included except resort fees, but there are exceptions. In Paris there's a tax that applies regardless of whether it's an award stay

Typically resort fees are in the 25-50 range, and are taxed as well.

This is property (resort vs standard) and country specific. I've stayed on all points in US and no additional money spent. Stayed in Vegas on points needed to pay reaort fee. Spain, France, I had additional charge per night.... Whenever you book it'll tell you if additional cost is anticipated, well at least the old system, idk about anything after tomorrow.

NY has “destination fees” too. Hyatt takes the high road and doesn’t charge resort fees on award stays. Hyatt Globalists get free parking in hotel-managed garages and lots on award stays too.
