I just checked into a Marriott this weekend.  It's been about a month since I stayed in a Marriott.  I asked if the keys were setup to access the lounge.  "No sir, you are only a Gold Elite".  Wow.  I have always gotten my Elite status through United Airlines - I am global services level with United.  The lounge access kept me coming back - about 30 nights last year.  In fact, I concentrated all of my nights in Marriott whenever possible because of this little perk.  So for the cost of a coffee and a quiet place to sit in the morning - I will have to say BonVoy to Marriott.
