I have 889 nights and yet I am a long way away from lifetime silver, gold or platinum? I only have 1.1 million points. Was there a mistake or is there advice on what it will take to get me significant points (like 300,000) to earn lifetime Gold?
Generally it's harder to rack up nights than points especially during award stays so you are not alone.
Are you taking advantage of all the promos (Megabonus, local bonus, etc)? In addition, it helps have the Marriott credit cards as well (if you are a US-based resident).
Also keep in mind that stays at Residence Inn and Towneplace only earn half the points.

timothy, i am not sure i would use a work e mail on here. On your points, it is often harder to get points rather than nights particularly if you are a business traveler and have a company card. look up o0o0o0o0o0o...points!, he has given a full set of ways to maximize points. At 1.1 M you are not that far away. Outside of buying a nice Canadair private jet on your Marriott Visa card, there really is no way other than plugging away on your trips and maximizing mega bonus and other deals.
