For this conference and for the previous conference, my marketing director booked the room with the corporate AmEx that's in her name. At the Marriott I stayed at for the last conference, they were happy to put the room on that card, even though I didn't have it for them to swipe. At the Hilton I stayed at for this conference, they wanted a card to swipe, and they needed an authorization form filled out and faxed to them (including front and back of the card, plus a picture ID).

Anyone know which of these practices is more common?
In other news, my mother now has an nsa.gov email address.

The Marriott employee likely already had the authorization form in hand, or was going against policy. The credit card authorization form with a faxed copy of the card front and back and signature matching that of the cardholder is a very standard practice and has been for the past ten years or so. This is an industry-wide standard.

every time I have stayed at the Marriott for business the room has been booked on a corporate card but they have required a card to be swiped when I check in, so I end up using my card and getting reimbursed

which reminds me I need to put in my receipts :-)
