Last year I achieved Platinum Premier. I have been Platinum for the last 7 years and last year I stayed 170 nights and achieved this mysterious Platinum Premier level. Has anyone that has achieved this level noticed any difference than regular Platinum? In fact for me, I have had fewer upgrades this year than in previous years and in some cases not received any of my stay preferences. Most of the front desk staff doesn't even know that Platinum Premier is different than Platinum Elite.
In addition to this topic, what is the point of stay preferences like extra towels and pillows on your profile if the hotel doesn't even look at that.
