So it looks like I could miss my upgrade gold elite status unless I stay three more nights out of the remaining 4 nights left in the 2016 year. Just wanted to check to see if they definitely cut it off on December 31 and I have to start over again on January 1 or is there any kind of grace period into January when I know I'll have at least 3 overnights at a Marriott? Any other thoughts? I had an awful stay at a recent hotel stay and maybe I could have used that experience as a way of getting an extra rewards night credit.... I was gracious and didn't complain. Silver Elite is nice but I know Gold is nicer with potential upgrades right? I'm so clooooose!
