Didn't know exactly where to post these comments, so apologies in advance. Anyway, I'm scheduled to stay at this hotel for a couple of nights next week, and decided to take the advice of other insiders (and my wife) and call in advance to see what I could expect. Found out that they do in fact make every attempt to upgrade platinum, so they added the upgrade request to my reservation. Also found out that they do provide breakfast for platinum (no CL since it's a resort). So I'm happy, and look forward to adding my review to this thread after my stay.
