how to maintain platinum status if you are short of 75 nights to continue
I'm not sure how short you are, but sometimes Marriott has been known to renew a status based upon a members loyalty history, even if they're a little short. Also, there is a program called "Taste of Platinum," where you can enroll, and then stay a certain number of nights during a certain period (something like 19 nights in a 3 month period, but don't quote me on that), and you will be given Platinum status during the earning period, and if you reach the goal, will be awarded Platinum for the rest of the year, and even the following year, I believe. Give Customer Support a call and ask for more information. Another option that may be available is to buy it back for a certain number of points.
