Just joined the forum. Looks like the "Insiders" have the same oversight that 90% of Marriott properties have for Platinum Premiers. My badge just says Platinum. I've been PP for 5 years now...

In regards to your post, I don't have a complete answer for you. However I will definitely be passing your comments along to the appropriate team for review. This topic is gaining popularity, and I can see why. Reaching the Platinum Premier Status Level is a great accomplishment!
Worry ye not 82bj42, I have your back. You have now been added to my list of Tame PPs on my Re: Platinum Premier gets a real benefit... thread... See, it's worth all that absence from home and hearth
Appreciate the inclusion brightlybob. Unfortunately, I'm an American guy due to consumption of US Air, so no benefit for me.
Maybe as Marriott Rewards merges with SPG a rename of the status levels will finally come around. May I suggest Unobtainium? Or, for that matter, anything that removes confusion.
