TJOB here, 30+ year member of Marriott Rewards. I just attained Lifetime Gold and except for a nice letter congratulating me, I can't see where if or how Marriott tags the account as Lifetime. If they did, it could act as a tie breaker for upgrades and would allow member properties to know you're a long time member and not a recently achieved member. I understand wanting to attempt to treat all members of a level equally, however there are times when acknowledging the achievement could make a difference? I'm I missing something? Do any of you have it so noted on your file so that it precedes you to a property? Thank you - happy travels!
