How does 'Suite Nights' differ from current Gold/Platinum Upgrade benefit?

That's pretty much my question.  I chose this as my annual bonus just because I didn't see any benefit in the other options, but as Lifetime Platinum, shouldn't I automatically be eligible for upgrades?  And aren't upgrades usually suites?  I suppose better views, larger rooms, etc would also count.  This just seems redundant.  Like getting to choose five free breakfasts, when we are supposed to get them anyway.  Odds are, I am not the first to ask this, so I apologize in advance.
