My experience has been different. During the week, my companions ALWAYS receive access to the lounge, which also means they have free breakfast and everything else provided in the lounge. In fact, I have found that when I have booked more than one room, the other ROOM also received access.

On the weekend, it is up to the hotel whether they provide free breakfast. My personal rate of success is about 70% - YMMV, and others certainly report higher & lower percentages. However, when it IS provided via breakfast, breakfast coupons, or a breakfast allowance it always has included my companion.

Resorts are excluded from a lot of Marriott "offers". If you plan to spend a lot of time in one, HH or even Hyatt may be a better option for you.
