Ended up having better luck on leisure stays than work stays.

Got unforgettable full suite upgrades at JW Hanoi and Le Meridien Chiang Mai. Four-night stays. Traveling shoulder season, right after end of rains. Staying on points at JW.

Had excellent corner junior suite upgrade at Aloft El Paso and HiLo Portland on weekend stays.

All as Plat after the merger. In my opinion, upgrades should be about surprise and delight more than entitled reward for elite nights... the point of Bonvoy is ubiquity, consistency, and earn-and-burn, not so much elite benefits. Of course, itís sleazy for Marriott to offer SNAs without providing properties enough compensation for them to work
