Cash upgrade on paid stay

I have a but of a unique situation id say.. requested a cash upgrade at the RC Boston for an upcoming 5 night stay. The stay itself is master-billed to the company I'm working for, RC has however agreed to separate the portfolio since I have to cover for the upgrade fee by myself. Would I technically qualify to earn points on the portion I cover myself? Same for elite nights? The stay ends August 16 so just missed the new program start where any eligible charges can qualify

Also, they have offered 2 upgrade options:
1) Club level deluxe room
2) Executive Suite (not club)
Both for the same nightly rate of $125/night... which would be more worth it?

thanks!

I’d do the club unless you really need the extra space

IMO 5 nts is too long for club level. That probably 10+ visits to the same self service room (for probably $700 with tax). When with my wife, we always take and appreciate a suite upgrade, but if you're alone I'd skip that too.
