1. As long as you get points/credit for the stay, then the stay will count. And most every corp rate will count. (Note it may be possible that some corporations have negociated a rate that excludes getting points, but I've never come across one that didn't.)

2. I'll have to defer to others on this one as I've never dealt with the possibilities around not meeting a challenge. Personally, I would suggest only going with the Plat challenge if you are sure you can make it. If you can't, but know you can make the nights needed for a Gold challenge then just do that. The benefits between Gold and Plat aren't that great and not worth the risk of losing out on getting an elevated elite status.
