Free and really good buffet breakfast served to all guests. If you are staying in the lower villas the breakfast is served in the Tholos restaurant near reception. If you are staying in the upper villas the breakfast is served in the Italian restaurant, Blend, next to the lounge. Champagne and Bloody Mary bar included.
The lounge is open 24 hours with hot and cold apps throughout the day. Free beer and wine. Nespresso espresso machine and Nespresso filtered coffee machine. Two computers, one P C and one Mac plus one printer.

London Heathrow Marriott -- Lounge is closed for construction. The signs say, they are constructing an M-Club. From the looks of it, it will be on the 1st floor immediately to the right of the Front Desk.

Sounds like the FDC didn't know! I just talked to the property & they said when the lounge is closed, elites get full breakfast in the restaurant. Also, if they had not given you the cert they would have been on the hook for $100 for the breakfast guarantee.

Cheers.

Gold/Plats get free breakfast at the Cast Iron Restaurant. The front desk will provide a voucher for a drink (house beer, wine, softdrink) and a small platter of appetizers. Guests can receive more than one voucher on request.

It took two tries with Marriott customer service, but got a nice apology and some points for the trouble.

Marriott Downtown Philadelphia

lounge open for breakfast Saturday and Sunday, 7am-11am

The attendant screened everyone entering. I saw him tell two different parties access was limited and extra guests would be charged. First time I ever saw this.

Big events at the convention center sometimes invite extra lounge screening.

Minneapolis Airport Marriott MSP

Concierge Lounge is open during the week but closed on weekends (not simply CLOSED all the time as indicated in the OP).

When lounge is closed, they give Golds and Plats coupons for the big full breakfast buffet in the restaurant, including hot items (plus the 750 points for lounge closure).

Front desk clerk seemed confused, but she stated that the lounge was for Golds and Plats (and not those who book club level rooms). Until a few days ago, club level rooms were being sold on the website for this weekend but not any longer.

And there was a huge event at the hotel as well.

It was interesting to watch and listen to the exchanges. The attendant was very professional with his response and stayed on point.

Personally, I was wondering about our party. Hubby is PP (and has been for years) we were travelling with two 11-yos. We had two rooms booked. Over our two night stay, the attendant just checked us in.

Could it be they can see annual spending or other qualifiers on their system allowing them to make case by case exceptions?

This was a points stay. Maybe we were upgraded to club level? I know it wasn't a club level room when I made the reservations.

MSPEconomist, FDC must have been confused, as it's breakfast or 750 pts when lounge is closed on the weekends.

I just called the MSP Marriott, might have gotten the same confused FDC because she had a couple of dif answers on cont'l vs. full, put me on hold to ask someone, & then said the voucher is for cont'l w/ $4 up charge to full breakfast (which matches the last report of a couple of years ago). If you're staying at the property this weekend, would appreciate an update on what the actual situation is. Thx!

PS - When a lounge is listed as closed, the following applies (the very first part of the first post in this thread): "To avoid confusion: CLOSED on weekends means the lounge shuts down around noon on Friday & doesn't re-open until 5:00pm on Sunday (w/ the exception of some Middle East countries, whose weekends are on dif days). OPEN means that the lounge is still open for brekkie and evening offerings of food and drink Fri night, all day Sat & all day Sun. KEY ACCESSIBLE means the lounge is closed, but you can still enter with your room key to use the internet terminal or grab a soda or bottled water."

Cheers.
