Front desk refuse to recognize elite status and refuse to take membership number for points/night accural, is that reasonable? I thought even if booking was made by a third party (in this case the government), we should still receive status recognition?

If there a Marriott Rep on this forum? Can someone @Him/her? Thanks!
The hotel probably participate in some government program and government books a block rate. In this case, elite program does not apply. The hotel is already booked by the government. 3rd party booking is not covered with hotel elite program.

Sorry. Elite status is the last thing the hotel or the government worry now.....

But still enjoy the stay there.
