Hi Guys,


New here and just looking to figure a few things out.  I made platinum last year (starting the current job in June) and had 44 rollover nights to give you an idea and another ~65 nights planned through April.  I've been a Rewards Member for years (2001), but have never been more than Silver before this new job.


Planing a trip to Brussels (for pleasure this time)  and see a few points options:


Marriott Rewards Redemption: 40K per night

Deluxe room, Guest room, 1 King or 2 Twin/Single Bed(s)


Marriott Rewards Redemption with Points Upgrade: 45K per night

Club Room, Executive lounge access, Guest room, 1 King or 2 Twin/Single Bed(s)

If I am a Platinum Elite member won't I get lounge access already? 

I see there were questions in the past about the lounge being open weekends.  It was confirmed open, but that was 2012/2013.  Does anyone know if there are any changes?
