This is correct. I had the same thing happen to me but it was just 1 reward night in my case. Grossly unfair!

You can get around this by:

- booking your reward stay after BRG is approved (I know, not an option for you)
- booking from a different account
- booking at a different hotel
- booking at a non-Marriott hotel

Wait until you get a BRG with multiple nights at different prices and they only give you 25% off on certain nights.

Anyone who says Marriott LNF is better than SPG BRG needs to have their heads examined.
