I am currently Platinum Premier level (about 5 nights from Lifetime status, which I'll have in 2 weeks). I do not have a Marriott credit card, and don't really want one. I received the Ritz Carlton credit card "two free nights" offer. I'm interested in the Ritz card for two free nights, upgrade to club level, etc. My question is how will my Marriott Platinum status and the Ritz card benefits coexist? Can I take full advantage of the Ritz card benefits with my Marriott Rewards number, and without having a Ritz Carlton Rewards number?
