Then last week, my friend booked, and we stayed at the Sheraton Laval, Quebec, and once, again, we were denied club access. This time the Manager telling us club access was $50 more. My friend sent an email to customer support.

Although the booking wasn't in my name, since this is the second time it's happened to me, I also sent an email to Starwood.

Now they say I need 30k spend on the card for Gold Status, to get Club Access.

Here's the reply I got (names redacted):

For reference, here's the AmEx Terms:

My apologies for any inconvenience. If you will send me the customer service file numbers for each of these incidents, I would like to get the SPG Hotel Coordinators to follow up on the Sheraton Columbia Town Center, Maryland and the Sheraton Laval, Quebec; and, for the email associate's supervisor to follow up on that.

Best regards,
