    I've done several multiple rooms on one reservation and gotten extra elite stays and nights since Mar 2012. However, this scenario is mildly different.

    I need two rooms for the first 5 days and then only 1 room for the last two days after part of my party departs early. Can I book two separate reservations - one 5 day reservation and one 7 day reservation with my SPG on both and get stay credit for both or do they have to be on one reservation?

    Most of the chatter references "same reservation" for multiple rooms, but I'm wondering if any MPers have real world experience otherwise?

    If it has to be same reservation then I will book a 2 room res for 5 days and then a second res for 1 room for the last 2 days, but I just was more curious.

    I have been booking my room reservations separately for each room and have been getting the proper credit. I purposely do this to avoid any confusion in the awarding of points.

    Staying consecutive nights at the same property? Wasn't aware you could do this. I typically will bounce between properties if I need a multi-night stay...

    I think marcwint55 is saying he gets 2 nights credit when he books two rooms at one hotel even in separate reservations.

    Right. You can get up to three, I believe.

    You should, but you should make sure that all three rooms are in your name and that you pay for all three rooms. In addition, you should be prepared to follow up with research@starwoid.com as there is a good chance that it won't post properly (mine didn't)

    Then you should be fine. While I've had the occasional property mess this up they generally get it right. We almost always have two rooms when we travel as a family and only one stay hasn't posted correctly this year.

    No, not with most. It may very well be unique to SPG.

    Not really useful to me at the moment, but it will be good in the future to be able to get credits for both rooms when traveling with kids in an adjoining room.

    The original stay with two separate paid reservations of diff lengths seemed to work fine. It was a while ago but I can't tell if the FD merged them together or had to do anything funny, but points all posted.

    Follow up scenario:
    I want to know if multiple award reservations on a night at the same hotel will count. Awards are 1 room only so multiple rooms will have to be separate.

    I assume it will all work now but would like to hear confirmation from you all too.

    Multiple award rooms under your name will absolutely earn multiple stay and night credits. The limit is 3. This is the reason I hit 100 nights last year. We usually grab 2 rooms for the kids and parents to be able to spread out. Couple that with us bringing along grandparents, etc and I was able to rack up a lot of nights this way.
