Just back from a wonderful week vacation at the Marriott Cancun resort. Resort and employees were all top notch.
Still upon checking in, I did ask if I was lucky for a room upgrade. I'm Platinum Elite and I already had a reservation for an Oceanfront room.
Their answer was: " I have check with my supervisor, I can offer you a Suite upgrade for $50/day. Usually it would be $100/day more but since you're Platinum it would be only $50/day.
