Discovered it when we stopped for gas and immediately called the hotel. Was told valet marked the ticket showing damage prior to parking. I said it was additional damage and would send a photo. Does anyone know how detailed valets note damage? Any advice on our next step will be appreciated.

You may be out of luck if you left the valet area and did not notice it then. Even if it was just a few minutes later, how could anyone actually prove when the damage was done? I know it seems more likely than not that the valet caused the damage, but proving this becomes the problem. It is also probably on the back of the valet ticket they handed you.

You can always write and see if you can get some compensation.

You posted "I said it was additional damage and would send a photo." Was this photo immediately prior to your Marriott stay? Is it time/date stamped and/or does it have embedded GPS data?
