You get the same benefit. You do not get less when traveling alone. But when there's a second guest, that guest also gets the benefit. Among other things, this policy encourages leisure travel.

Marriott made a business decision that the standard at Courtyard would be to provide a $10 USD F&B credit daily when the room is occupied by a Platinum Elite (or higher) member, an additional $10 USD F&B credit daily when there's a second guest in the room — but no additional credits for a third or fourth guest.

This is parallel with how Marriott provides daily breakfast in the restaurant and lounge access at many other Marriott brands. When there's a second guest — but only when there's a second guest — there's a second benefit.
