OK, we know that the qualification requirements for Platinum Premier remain a black box. Everyone seems to assume that you need at least 125 nights. PINGREEMAN asked MR directly last year, then posted that: "[On]ly the top three percent receive the Platinum Premier status for one year. [The] corporate offices [explained] that the qualification process is based upon a comparison of Platinum member accounts. ... [T]he account is looked at as a whole; this will include amount of nights at Marriott Hotels and the dollar amounts spent at the properties."
Let's see if we can't add a little transparency to the equation.
