I will not be surprised if FHR uses a platform for those hotels that is independent from the Marriott one (such as the design hotels own booking platform) and therefore it would not be an eligible nights.
I think my opinion, FWIW, would fall into this category. I don't believe that FHR is going to be recognized as an official Marriott Reservation Channel.

But, I don't think the credit card credit is going to be an issue unless the hotel doesn't show up on AMEX's end as being a Marriott-affiliated property.
