Marriott Rewards (including Ritz-Carlton) - Rewards questions

When I am redeeming Marriott points for a night of stay, do I have to be there for the check in, or can someone else with the receipt check in without my presence?

You can make a rewards stay in someone else's name if you aren't going to be there at all. You just have to call to make the reservation.*
If you are simply arriving later, you can add them to your reservation to allow them check in early.
*Promo. night certs are not transferrable, but award stays with points are.
I have never had a problem with either method- op and 1st response.

So the reservation has to be made via phone?

So the reservation has to be made via phone?When making an award reservation in someone else's name, yes, you will need to call MR for that.
