It appears to be a third-party booking source, which does not provide elite credit and benefits.

Isn't it similar to Virtuoso and AmEx FHR? Those earn nights/stay and points, at least with FHR assuming that you call and don't get a prepaid rate. It's not like hotels.com, Priceline, etc.

Is it a cooperation between Marriott with Virtuoso and amex fhr where visa luxury don't have ?

FHR would be third party and I always get points and elite night credits for those stays. I canít imagine the Visa program would be that much different...

There is a difference usually between FHR prepaid and FHR paid at property.

I've never used prepaid so I'm not sure about that, honestly didn't even know that was an option, not that I'd ever use it anyway.

I'll have to dive into a Visa card account and see what the process actually is for booking a hotel through their Luxury Hotel Collection program, I've never tried it before.

I plan to book because they offer some interesting package (flight and hotel). Too bad if can't earn elite nights and points if the hotel is under Marriott Bonvoy. FHR is third party as well but eligible for night and point. Not sure what's the difference.
