I have recently reached Platinum status. Woo hoo!
A couple of questions.
I regularly stay at a property for 5 or 6 different categories of room. As a Gold, I get upgraded by one tier ot two every time I check in but have never ever been upgraded to either category of suite. As a Platinum, should I now be hopeful of a better quality of upgrade or is it still likely to be restricted to 1 or 2 categories? [I doubt if too many regular travellers are lucky enough to have a company who will pay for the rooms close to suite level and thus be 1 or 2 categories away from the suite]
Aside from the arrival gift and the 50% bonus points, is there anything else which I am likely to notice as a result of the transition from Gold to Platinum? Do people really feel any other difference associated with being a platinum? Aside from front check-in staff, will any other member of staff even be aware of status?
