While it may be best to refund as a matter of customer service, they are not legally obligated to do anything.

At the minimum, you have utilized the room and the parking.

I would say the correct way to say this is an insurer can't increase your premium simply because you have a no-fault incident. However, the insurer can still raise your premium for all other reasons (such as increased cost of insurance).

+1 You paid the premium. Let your insurance works for you.

Exceptionally true.

In fact - it is almost certain that the valet is run by another vendor.

Marriott may not be liable as much as you think.
