I gave the FDC credit for standing firm, saying "Marriott's policy is 3rd party bookings don't accumulate night/points credit, I appreciate you have gotten it at other properties but you've been lucky & at our property, we follow Marriott policy".
Aren't there other reasons to have your number on the reservation though, such as lounge access, guaranteed late checkout, etc.? I don't use third party sites, but I thought you were still entitled some of the benefits, just not the points and nights credit.
