It's always fun to talk to those either new or with limited knowledge of MR about the existence of the extra level we call Platinum Premiere Elite. One thing I have tried to do with each property I go to is get an idea of how many PPE they see in a given week. It has been really interesting, based on the profile of the property's guest (conventioneer, leisure, business direct), how often they see a PPE. For instance, at the Sao Paulo Renaissance, the concierge floor processes about 1-2 PPEs per week. I know the ad hoc question to one concierge employee doesn't represent all that stay, it does give an idea how rare this level may actually be. It would be interesting to see if any of the MRI PPE clan can share your various responses, perks, communications, or exclusivity you receive for being at this level.
Sao Paulo Renaissance: 1-2/week
Plano Marriott: 2-3/week
Bellevue Courtyard Downtown (Microsoft): 5-6/week
