redeeming award night Ritz Carlton Chicago

Hi,

What's the benefit for Platinum Marriott guest? except room upgrade. I read it online that Platinum guest wont be able to access the club lounge. is that true? and what about complimentary breakfast?


thanks

Except possible room upgrade, nada.

Actually, you would also receive late checkout and premium internet.

Not many benefits. You may get a one category upgrade and a suite upgrade isn't likely.

You may be able to get 1-2 hours past normal checkout, but I would not expect a 4pm checkout.

No Club Lounge access and no breakfast.

And just in case you were thinking about it, switching to the RC program (and then being an RC Plat) won't change anything.

Except that you can get double nights credited for being a RC member.

Email the hotel prior to see if an upgrade is possible as long as you're not asking for Club lounge access. I believe it's limited to 51 rooms that get lounge access.

My last visit I was upgraded, although I booked a basic CL room directly, I was given a Lakeside suite.

I usually have no issue getting 2pm or 3pm.

Any update on your stay? I am staying here over a weekend, but will switch to another marriott/spg if there are no benefits at the ritz.

Best,
BEM

Finishing a stay here. Got upgraded from a King City to an Executive Suite. Club Level just reopened after being closed all of January.
