Marriott EEO

I'm a little confused with the Marriott EEO. Can you print the online page and use it more than once? or are you limited to one weekend? Thanks

to believe Marriott is not aware of the potential of multiuse of these certificates is a little naive. to believe that Marriott is not aware that these certificates are also available on ebay would be equally foolish.

The multiuse of these certificates, at whatever level that may be viewed two ways. First it may be seen as an undocumented perk for Marriott platinum members to share with their families and friends. (Again, I would not assume that Marriott is not aware of this action). Marriott management should be applauded for "looking the other way". Second, as properties have significantly lower occupancy rates during weekends, these certificates help draw occupancy among those family & friends who may just as easily have stayed at a competitive property.

Bottom line, if the misuse was rampant, you can be sure that Marriott would take it's "head out of the sand". Obviously there are bigger issues to handle. Let's appreciate them that they leave this one alone, at least for the time being.

I have done this once at the Las Vegas Renaissance; aside from getting a lecture because I forgot to turn in the Premium Pound at checkin, it was processed just fine.

.
I'm usually not an advocate of rationalizing a violation of the T&C's of a program. However, in this case, Marriott has made absolutely no effort to control the use of the certificates that I have to believe that Marriott intends for them to be used as often as desired.
