Platinum Premier Qualification

Poll created by ssindc on Oct 16, 2011

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.

  • This poll misses something obvious (longevity in program, numbers of nights spent in high-end/urban properties, bonus nights versus actual nights stayed, hosting big events, etc.). See my comment below.... (top voted)
