Korea Seoul CY

Seoul Times Square CY is a FS hotel and the lounge is open on the weekend.

Sorry if I wasn't clear.

* I'm not going to call every hotel in the chain, but on the ones I've contacted (in the US) some do not make a distinction btwn Gold/Plats & either provide coupons or don't, and some do & provide coupons only to Plats. Where they've indicated to me that it's for Plats only, I've indicated that in the updates.

* The extraneous posts that I'm trying to avoid are re: lounge policies in general, cutbacks, likes/dislikes of certain properties, etc. I think coupons being provided to Plats only or both Gold/Plats falls w/in the parameters of this thread, so a separate thread isn't necessary IMO. If people want to update in terms of that I'll update the original post.

* No worries. I'm going to go w/ what you said re: it being open, because (being surprised a CY actually would offer a lounge - something one won't find in the US! - I went to the Marriott website & it showed the CY Seoul's lounge being closed on the weekend. But websites aren't always updated & since you stayed there recently, I went w/ what you posted.

PS - Weclome to FT!

Cheers.

Interesting question. At a number of properties I've stayed at in the past, the front desk made a point of mentioning that "as a platinum" I was being given breakfast coupons (for weekend breakfast). I guess I assumed at the time that they were a platinum perk. (Among other properties, I remember being told that at the Buttes, Mayflower and Vinoy.) But, in retrospect, they might have said something similar to golds, only substituting the word gold for platinum.

Some hotels I've stayed at make a big production over Plats, including personal attention from management. An example of this would be Wardman Park in DC. When I last stayed at Wardman Park in December 2009, the AGM called me in my room to congratulate me on requalifying for Plat 2010 during my stay there (my 73rd, 74th, and 75th night if I recall correctly), and wanted to give me dinner vouchers in recognition of that fact, which were left for me in an envelope at the front desk, two restaurant vouchers with a value of $40/each.

Somehow I doubt that they would do anything similar for Gold members who are staying for their 48th, 49th, and 50th night. I am only bringing this up regarding possible different treatment for Plats and Golds as far as weekend breakfast coupons. However, I'm not sure how to go about discovering this definitively. Maybe the responses need to indicate elite status to we can measure this better.

Ren. Moscow Monarch Center... open on Saturday.

One of the nicest exe lounge's I've been in, being brand new also helps...amazing view of downtown Moscow. Was given b-fast for free on Sunday since lounge was closed on Sunday. I've now stayed at this property twice and am fallin' in love with it.

Sharon -

Thanks for taking this on.

Some updates:

"Niagara" has three "a" s in it (not "Niagra")

The Marriott Newton MA would not give me coupons last time I was there on a weekend (Jan 2009) despite having done so in Jan 2008 - I am assuming you relied on my post to jonathansullivans original thread so unless you have more recent feedback re: coupons I would assume no coupons at this property

I'll do updates on new information posted.

Again, this thread is for posting updates re: exec lounges being open, whether coupons are offered or not (can list Gold or Plat), if the lounge is key accessible, if i-net terminals or wireless, and the date the information was current, so appreciate all the help & also keeping any editorializing re: properties to those properties threads. Thx!

Cheers.

Iowa and Utah have been updated; contacted the hotels directly.

Dropped Nashua, NH since it no longer appears on the Marriott website. Only full service in NH is Wentworth & that's a resort, so no lounge/coupons unless someone posts otherwise.

Cheers.

Nope. I said I'd give it a month to garner input before asking Bruce to sticky it (it's only been 9 days) & by not making it a sticky, we're actually getting more current info, which is quite helpful to FTers. And we need the current info, given the list I was working off of is 15 months old.

So - to my fellow FTers, once again, check the list to see if the properties you've stayed at are listed properly. If they're not, then post the differences & the date. If they are accurate, then post the date.

If a property is not limited, then please add: exec lounge open/closed, coupons, key accessible, i-net terminals, date verified, etc.

Cheers.
