I've been missing in action for a while, but due to personal stuff with the family, we haven't traveled any this fall. Now, however, with the holidays approaching, we will be accruing more points and nights--but not quite enough nights. I was fortunate enough to achieve Lifetime Titanium in 2018, so that's not an issue, but I do have a question about benefits. I will lack one night getting platinum this year (will have 49 nights). I know I won't get any of the choice gifts (5 nights, SNAs, etc.), but will I still be able to have the 4:00 p.m. check out guarantee and lounge access because I'm LTT? Those are really the only benefits that I care about, and if you all think there would be a problem with them, I could get a Cat. 2 hotel here in northern Virginia before the end of December for 10,000 points in order to get to Platinum for the coming year. What's your best advice? Any insights?
