I think the Diamond level is a nod to former FPC members: they spend more per night and the "other in house benefits" could be similar to what Fairmont did before, like spa or dining credits, etc.
The Suite upgrade is disappointing and I think it's a net-loss for Platinum members. I've received quite a few Suite upgrades as Platinum in the past, but I expect properties to be less generous in the future and either give these to Diamond/Black members or with SU certs only...
If the future Platinum upgrades are the bare minimum, ie from broom closet to broom closet with bathrobe, Platinum will loose a lot of it's .appeal....
I'm on track for Platinum this year, but not Diamond. I'll have plenty of time to decide whether I want to stay loyal to Accor or not...
