SPG has done soft landings for me in the past so that appears to be coded into their system.

Marriott just kept me at Plat status although I hadn't qualified for it for a couple of years. One year they gave me Plat in spite of ~23 nights, including ~20 credit card nights. The next year I made LT Plat so I was very close; only needed to hit the LT point requirement.
Some posts on the Marriott thread indicate that they in fact have a soft landing program.

IHG appears to do hard landings (from my readings) ... with a lot of exceptions. No personal experience; I have the IHG CC so I'm always Plat.

I couldn't find any posts on Club Carlson; I'm pretty sure I hard landed with them.

No posts on Fairmont so no idea there.

Hyatt appears to have done soft landings in the past; unknown how this will be handled with the program change.

I've seen soft landings from Carlson for years now.
