If you were eligible for these rates, you would probably already have the code.

If my tie to Marriott did not just take off for a 10 hour flight or if I was at home I guess I'd have access to the code and would be able to start searching avail for my honeymoon.

Be nice.

To be eligible for the friends and family rate, you will need a signed form from the manager of a Marriott location for each property at which you will be using the rate.

For example, the sales manager at a property I've used regularly for over 2 years was able to secure 3 forms, signed by the front desk manager of that property, for use at 3 alternate Marriott properties of my choice.

Yes I heard about the forms. I'm just trying to blanket search first and see what is avail.

These have been posted before, so I'm only repeating what has been published.

MMF is the friends and family code. As has been said, you will need a form to be authorised by someone at property or a central office basis. I've used these a few times and have always been asked for it when checking in. I'm sure your contact will sort you out.

Happy honeymoon planning. Where are you thinking of if you don't mind me asking?

You won't find much advance availability on the MMF code. My understanding is that inventory is released for MMF as little as 90 days out.

The requirement is a minimum of 60 days out

Friend with M used this rate and it was $10 higher than the Senior rate. Does this makes any sense?
