Cool 2014 Platinum Requalification Roll Call

I didn't see that this thread had been started yet for qualification in 2013 for 2014.

It'll be interesting to hear when the Platinum 50, 75, and 100 levels are made by everyone.

I just made Platinum 50. On the way to Platinum 100!!

Why on Earth would anyone in their right mind want to brag about making Platinum 100?

Wink We are all humans ... with pride and ego ...

Some loves to brag, some loves to show off what they have over majority ... well just enjoy your status either by showing off or don't worry be happy on whatever Plat level you are ...

How did you manage 63 nights in 57 days? Because you booked multiple rooms and got the credits??

Lifetime Platinum now, so don't worry about all this crapola anymore.

But LO and behold, I'm already at 25 nights already, and we're not even in March yet!!!

Guess I may break 50 nights this year

I honestly don't know what the love-fest is with Starwood--at least for U.S. hotels. (I get it for some overseas markets.) I've been a Platinum for years, and have yet to really feel that it's that big of a deal.

30 nights so far - as of March 2.

Lots of work travel this year, so we'll see.

Wish it was this easy to get EXP at AA.

Requalified for Platinum for 2014 last night with my 25th stay (on 28 nights). The W New York - Times Square had the pleasure of hosting me for my qualifying night. Upgraded to a Cool Corner room.

Next year will be my 9th as a Platinum, and I'm currently near 600 nights, so hopefully one more requalification next year and I'll be Lifetime Platinum.

47 nights so far at starwood hotels this year but unfortunately only 21 of those will count....the other 26 were booked & paid for directly by my client....will easily get to 75 eligible nights this year, maybe 100 as well but all in all i'll probably end up spending between 150-200 nights in starwood properties this year....
