They listed hotels that had decided to opt out from this offer when these hotels were actually the ones participating.

Marriott Rewards Travel Package

In my opinion, this is the best way to use Marriott Rewards points. You get a 7 night hotel award and then can “purchase” airlines miles at ONE Marriott Rewards point per ONE mile with Package 1 airlines.
