    Anyone ever see this? A certain Marriott can be booked for one-night stays on a Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday night, but is not available for a two-night Saturday-Sunday (checking out Monday) reservation.

    The difficult night seems to be Sunday, as Friday-Saturday and Monday-Tuesday two-day stays are possible. Sunday-Monday is even available, just not Sat-Sun!

    I'd like to take advantage of the elite free weekend night offer here, which negates the possibility of booking multiple one-night stays.

    Anyone know what's going on here and how likely the Sunday night will open up? If there's an event going on, it seems to be specific to this property on this one night, as every other Marriott property in the area is available without a problem.

    Sounds like a logistical problem. Could be that there is literally not a room that is available on both of those nights. Perhaps if you call the hotel directly they may be able to work the kink out of the system?

    This sort of seems to be what's happening. The same rate classes are not available for both nights. On Saturday there's a $129 "leisure rate", as well as a few other package rates. But on Sunday all there is is a $239 "special event rate". You can stay Sun/Mon for the $239 rate. Note these may all be the same room types, but different rate classes.

    As it turned out, the rate on a different Marriott property in the area dropped overnight, so for now I'll book that one instead. Thanks for your help.

    It could also be a bedding issue, where one night they just have a queen bed available for an award and the other night a king bed available for an award. Marriott awards can change rates within one confirmation (and include reward & paid nights) but cannot change room types.
