    As someone who is currently reviewing the 1000 page Marriott design standards, this is very true.

    You're forgetting budgeting. You almost plan your entire yearlys on the football dates. If you get 100,000 instead of 1,000,000 you are screwed, because you planned the whole years budget on getting a million. Compared to a simple Tuesday when you already know the rate will be low.

    If you planned, you would've filled out the blackout dates correctly.

    Yes. Operator signed an agreement with Marriott. You think McDonald's would let an operator soil its name? Chick Fil A? Nope. They'd drop the hammer

    They can make them drop the name, but they don't necessarily share the same rules just because they pay to put the name on the sign. I can almost guarantee Marriott corporate will have little to no say in this.

    And they can't set their own prices. They can't source their own food and supplies

    Almost? They are using Marriott's name and booking program. What do you think, the operator signed a one page agreement allowing him to use a Marriott sign without rules to abide by?

    The flags need that property as much or more than the property needs the flag.

    There are rules and there are more exceptions to them than you can possibly know.

    Desired revenue= $700/night
    booked rate= $70/night
    add in a mandatory destination fee= $630/night

    Problem solved.

    I get it dude, you make $600/per night with that new griddle. Bigger question is...who stays at a Marriott in Clemson, SC?

    It's not a Marriott, it's a Courtyard, fwiw.

    Did not forget budgeting - I just don’t give a damn.
