Q: If I registered and was granted complimentary Marriott Rewards Gold Elite status through RewardsPlus and have re–qualified for MileagePlus Premier Gold® status or higher for the following year, will I need to also re–register my request for complimentary Gold Elite status for the following year?

A: No. Members who have already registered for and received complimentary Marriott Rewards Gold Elite status through RewardsPlus in a calendar year and who qualify for MileagePlus Premier Gold® status or higher for the following calendar year will have their previous registration with RewardsPlus automatically renewed and will receive complimentary Marriott Rewards Gold Elite status for the following calendar year.

-------------------------------

For the United elites who are new to Marriott Rewards, here are the benefits you receive as Gold. Please familiarize yourself with what you are and are not entitled to as a Marriott Gold.

Also, please be nice to the Marriott 'newbies' who come to this forum to figure out what UA Silver gets (or doesn't get) them.

And here is a thread with some details for the newly-minted UA Silvers:

Pre-merger, a Marriott Gold earned a full 38.88% percent more than an SPG Gold on a fully adjusted basis:

Pre-merger SPG Gold: 2 points per dollar, plus 50% bonus = 3 SPG x 3 = 9 Marriott points
Pre-marger MR Gold: 10 points per dollar plus 25% bonus = 12.5 Marriott points

Right. 3:1 x 50% = 150% is not how math works. 3:1 x 50% = 50%, because you're scaling both the underlying number and the bonus.

Oops. Indeed you are correct.

So as a 1K, with a stay at a Marriott hotel in January 2019, will I get access to the Executive Lounge? I am trying to determine whether to stay at the Marriott or the Hilton at LHR. If I get access to the Executive lounge it will be the Renaissance as I love the view of the runway. TIA

1Ks will be demoted from Marriott Platinum to Gold sometime in January, and with that, our lounge access will go away.
The earlier in January that you stay at LHR's Renaissance, the more likely you will be to have a last access to that lounge with the beautiful view of the runway.

You should be good in January as the status should expire either on January 31st 2019 or February 28th 2019. I have not been able to determine which expiration it is but surely in January it's good.
