With regards to pricing, the terms & conditions state that they will price match the lowest publicly available rate on the hotel website. When I called in and pointed out that the rate I saw was lower, they indeed went to the hotel website and verified this rate and were going to match it until they then found a negotiated rate that was still points earning eligible and about $10 less per night.

With regards to points earning, I think it is hotel chain specific and thus you will want to verify with Carlson Wagonlit whether the reservation is points earning eligible.
