I recently started my job as a consultant in the financial services industry, and starting mid-November I will be travelling Monday - Thursday (3 nights / week) to NYC for at least the next 5 months straight (will more than likely be indefinite for the next few years given where I'm based out of). My father was a longtime platinum member (currently gold) and I always enjoyed Marriott (and the benefits we got due to his status). Is there a way to expedite reaching gold or platinum status? I am not interested in the credit card (I am fresh out of college and already have enough credit cards).
Thank you for all the help! Can't wait to starting posting more once I start my travels!,
