(1) I've actually managed to negotiate on some shoes before. In context I know some users on here have also negotiated some benefits from hotels as well (usually where they've stayed frequently).

(2) As I understand it, Marriott policy is that where resort fees cover wifi and elite status comes with wifi (or the equivalent with other benefits) they're supposed to do something in lieu (or potentially reduce the fee) ...but in practice this is touch-and-go/sometimes needs prompting. The logic being that they're charging for stuff we're supposed to get for free. Presuming that nothing was on offer for this I was angling for a realistic "ask".
