This is why I've got love for Marriot Hotels.
Who remembers when I got stranded in Alabama? Luckily for me, my parents both use the Marriot Rewards Card and, through their sweet and simple rewards system, have enough points to live in a Marriot hotel for six months.
Members are supposed to make reservations a couple of weeks in advance. However, when the interstates had iced over during the great Snowpacalypse of 2011, the awesome folks at Marriot said, "Um. Girl. We got you covered."
Conclusion: Stay at Marriot. They have your back.
