I noticed that the Marriott forum has quite a few "stickie" threads and that the number has been slowly growing over the years. Also, it seems most of the other hotel/airline forums have a "master" FAQ thread at the top of their forums.

So I thought it might be a good idea if we tried to put together a Marriott Master FAQ thread. I have started one below with some general topics (I admit that I looked at the Hilton and the Starwood FAQs to get some ideas.)

My thoughts are that people could chime in with suggestions on additions, topic areas, etc. Whatever anyone thinks would be helpful.

So don't be shy. Let me know your thoughts (even if you think I'm totally doing it wrong.)

I've gone through a bit of the recent history to pull out some possible "master" threads for locations. I will continue to try to add more posts for locations that currently don't have anything listed yet.

If anyone has any possible suggestions, feel free to PM them to me.

Once we have a good running start, I'll ask Bruce to clean up this thread a bit and probably lock it in a similar manner that the SPG one is locked.

Can one earn Marriott Reward points for dining when you are not staying at the hotel? I had dinner at Duke's at the Kauai Marriott and when I inquired, the restaurant manager said they just lease space from Marriott. I imagine that hotel guests might be able to put dining on their hotel bill and get points thru that but my question is about a non-guest situation.
