If you're here, you are obviously experiencing some issues with the web site. Our apologies for any inconvenience. We have an interest in giving you the best web experience possible, so here are some tips on how to get any problems resolved:

First of all, the web assistance team has this suggestion for you:

"We first suggest the normal steps of clearing their cache (temporary files) and cookies, logging out of their Marriott Bonvoy account online, then close all browser windows before trying again. Please note that clearing cookies may also remove any stored passwords in the browser.

It is important for them to log out to ensure no bad/old data is saved and so that the online account has a chance to refresh.

You may already be aware of this, but note that cache and cookies are 2 different things. The cache memory is what remembers old content for faster page loading and may cause errors after updates. Cookies are mostly only meant for tracking during the current session. Both can still remember old errors that may have existed in the browser."

You should also be aware that being on a VPN sometimes interferes with your browsing experience. Try browsing without being on a VPN and see if this fixes the issue.

If none of this resolves your issue(s), you can you can send an email to [email protected] along with any screenshots leading up to and including the error message.

It also helps if you include the following information in your email:

-What browser(s) have you tried? Is the issue happening over multiple browsers or just one?
-Are you using a desktop/laptop or a mobile device?
-If you are using mobile device does this issue persist when on a desktop/laptop?

Once we have this information, we can forward it on to the web assistance team for further review, so please be as complete as possible.

If you are having an issue with any of the Marriott Bonvoy apps, you can send the following information directly to the Marriott Bonvoy App team at [email protected]:

-What device and operating system are you using?
-What version of our app do you have installed?
-What is the problem you have encountered?

My "online check-in" emails keep being a bit random. Today's correctly had me down as an Ambassador, but it misses You24 (which actually the hotel "doesn't do" now) and the "request a 4pm check-out" seems a bit uninspiring for a guaranteed 4pm check-out benefit. Is everyone else getting the same set?

Amazing in todays day and age that even the confirmation email you recieve after booking at a property is just a system generated no reply email and still doesn't contain a way to communicate with the property.

I'm a lifetime platinum and wanted to state this for the 2nd time as I didn't receive a response to this last time, but please fix this egregious oversight. This is almost funny, like a temporary state for a while with IT fixes an issue. However, it is clear this is NOT part of the Marriott online system and your customers are paying a price in irritation and inconvenience. Please fix this.

Also having the online chat feature is sorely missed with SPG and again absent on Marriott. Pretty basic features if you ask me and I am one of your most loyal customers now that you have merged.

Regards,
Jeff
Dear Jeff:

Having successfully demolished SPG, McMarriott is now the largest hotel chain in the world.

If our crap IT and indifferent Customer Service are displeasing to you, kindly go pound sand.

Love and Kisses,
Arne

I went to book some rooms for college football season this fall - Parent's weekend is always the weekend of a home game, and hotel demand gets high, but the game isn't announced for a few months.

So I booked the first room - before confirming I needed to check a box that I understood the cancellation was 30 days in advance. OK - that's fair for high demand, and they make sure (as much as they can) that you know this before confirming.

Then I booked the next game - no checkbox, about to click, when I happen to notice "cancellations after Feb. 6 will result in forfeit....".

So a 7+month cancellation policy, 1 day after booking, and while they needed to confirm you saw the 30 day cancel policy, this one could just slide by,

I tried both cash and points - same thing on both. Oddly, an Advance Rate, non-cancellable rate was available much cheaper. So do I want $250/night that I can't cancel after tomorrow or $195/night that I can't cancel after tomorrow?

I don't know whether it's a horrible new policy or a website glitch. I suspect the latter, but it doesn't really matter - all of my reservations are now with Hilton with 2-4 day cancellation.

And checking the "Book with points" box got me points rates half the time and cash rates the other. But when I clicked on "book now" for a cash rate, it brought me to the points booking anyway.

Business is just leaking away.

Account not showing stays or spend

On either the website or the app my account is not showing the correct number of nights or $ spend to date.

Called marriott and they said probably IT issue and they could see correct numbers.

Anyone else having this this issue and how worried should I be?

On a positive note (and yes, I know I'm breaking the unspoken travel hacker code of talking about an exploit), I've seen where Pre-paid, non-refundable rooms have a better cancellation policy than regular ones when you get close-in.

Yay! They fixed this. So someone is actually reading this thread. ^

Here's another one for you. I made 2 reservations today. In both cases, it was showing my credit card number on file, but when I clicked BOOK, the card was no longer there and I had to re-enter the information. (This has happened before, but I would just start over and the card number was there. Today, even when I started over, the card number disappeared during the booking process.)

UGH. This bug is infuriating and I feel like it's been happening for a few weeks. I have 2 cards stored, and they both disappear after clicking book. I log out and log back in, go back in the browser to the search page results, book, and then it works.

Is there a thread on their app? It constantly complained about a connection problem after an update yesterday, and I had to uninstall and reinstall it before it started working again. Marriott really needs to overhaul this seriously incompetent IT department.

I think the mods have redirected app issues to this thread.

Submitted an online request to remove this reservation from my account, but almost a month later, no action has been taken. Quite tempted to cancel the reservation, but it may ruin someone elses trip to Paris in 2 weeks

I had one such missing reservation recently.

When you open the reservation on the website, under Guest Information does it show your Member Number under the email address?

I thought so. Following my earlier post about the benefits in the confirmation emails being different, I just got this one which didn't list me as an Ambassador, but did correctly call out the Ambassador Your24 benefit. Random.

Grr, Website is mostly working for me now, but there is a persistent issue with My Account Overview. All other sections of my account work.

Under My Account
Profile www.marriott.com/loyalty/myAccount/profile.mi
Promotions www.marriott.com/loyalty/promotionCentral.mi
Favorites http://www.marriott.com/loyalty/myAc...savedHotels.mi
My Trips www.marriott.com/loyalty/findReservationList.mi
Activity www.marriott.com/loyalty/myAccount/activity.mi
Overview www.marriott.com/error.mi

I'll manually type in the url if I have to. I've tried a number of variations with Overview in the address.None have worked.

Anyone know what the address should be?
