A similar online booking code is MMP, Marriott Associate Pleasure Rate. This rate is only for associates, spouse, parents and children only travelling for pleasure. ID is required. Associate authorization forms are available in property's HR department.

Did you ask the Marriott employee whose friend you are? You'd need their signed authorization form to stay at that rate.

Yes. We made reservations in may for an October stay with the MMp code. We needed an extra day. I found the code, but now I think our friend doesn't worh there anymore. Her e-mail was returned as not found? Now I don't know what to do. Am I screwed for the days we booked at the mmp rate?


Thanks,

Geo

MMF.

But either way MMF or MMP you would still need the same form.

The MMP code that you booked under is not the friends & family rate - it's the associate rate. You can't get that rate even if you did have the paper work because you are not eligible for that rate. The only rate you could get would be the MMF rate, but if your friend (who doesn't appear to work for Marriott anymore & you probably isn't a very close friend as you presumably haven't talked to her in a while if you didn't know that) doesn't give you the authorization form, you can't even get that rate. You can book whatever you want to book, but if you don't have the proper forms at check-in, you'll be S.O.L.

Even if the paperwork is on the way, associate benefits such as the family and friends rate cease when the individual is no longer employed by Marriott.

Unfortunately, you may still be screwed--the form expires 60 days after the issue date...

The reality of this whole matter is that if this form is coming from a select service property most of them do not log these forms and pretty much hand them out to associates with out questioning who the form is for. Example being say you're cousin wants a form and that would be friends and family, but if he's decently older than he just became your father or if he's younger than per se he just became your son and then the appropriate box is checked on the form and boom you've got the rate.

Also most forms are not dated when issued and other than the GM, Suite Care Manager, or Guest Care Manager signing the form and filling in the property number and phone number on it the rest is usually left blank for the associate to fill in at a later date.

And when you go and use the form normally at a full-serivce the desk staff will usually grill it some what to make sure the form is filled out right but 99% of the time if the form is filled out right and you give the person checking you in no reason to question yourself or the form your in every time.

At select service most hotels if they even ask you for the form they will normally just look for a signature and to make sure that it's the correct color for the current year and that's about it.

The point to this being that yes there are rules with assoc. rate and friends and family that should be followed but like every other rate code they are abused daily and as long you have the form the rest is just a matter of morals.
