That's supposed to be one of the "new" benefits for PP at RC, right?

We were at RC Bali a few days ago. All suites/villas and P and PP were both upgraded, including the P to a villa.

I don't know if "new" is the correct word. Prior to 8/18, Ritz was supposed to upgrade plat to a suite if available at the hotel's discretion. Club upgrades were excluded but suites were not.

Since 8/18, there's now a distinction in suite upgrade benefit between PP and P so that Plats are explicitly excluded from getting suite upgrades.

Just know it’s Laguna Niguel and not really Laguna Beach!

If we are in town, maybe we can come down to meet you for drinks!

Upgraded multiple times at Kapalua over the past 6 years, last time to a 1 bed residence. I think we went in May every time, so not high season but still a nice time to go. Was probably Marriott PLT at the time.

We would love that. Since 1 son lives in Laguna Beach & 1 in Laguna Hills we are there weekly when we arenít traveling.

RC might actually be in Dana Point, right?

Upgrade at Ritz Chicago

Regular platinum. Booked basic king club level room for 3 nights, got upgraded to Gold Coast suite for whole stay. Hotel is having labor negotiations and staff was minimal. Overall not a great stay with the staff relations strained
