Yes, it is only for main member + 1.

Earlier this year, when it was a Gold benefit, me and my wife both had the status, so we booked the 2 rooms separately, and got the lounge access for 4 guests. If you book 2 rooms under one account, you still only get 2 passes to the lounge.

Is breakfast better in the lounge or Tavolo 24? Staying in mid-June, how likely are upgrades for plat?

Tavolo but it's not complimentary for Plats. The Lounge is a perfectly fine breakfast. You should at least get a Sky Roof room, if, not a suite.

you get breakfast in the restaurant if you have someone in the room under 18. But this place is fairly strict on the benefits. So you might have to pay for your kid if you have two adults already for breakfast. YMMV.

Pays to come here with a child. Did not know that this benefit existed!

This hotel has a phenomenal executive lounge. There were three of us (all over 18), so we had to pay the extra person charge for executive lounge use, but we thought it was completely worth it. The breakfast was decent, but we thought the evening happy hour was where they really shine. The days we were there, they had plentiful and varied enough food for it to qualify as dinner and some very drinkable wines. Granted, we were all coming from the US, so our expectations for a lounge might be a somewhat lower bar.
It was also just a lovely, serene space. Early in the morning, while the rest of our party was sleeping, it was nice to take a book up to the lounge and drink a cup of tea while enjoying the beautiful views.
