Free night certificate 1-4, can I use this and upgrade it to a higher tier hotel?

Anyone have experience with using a tier 4 free night certificate at a higher tier hotel and paying a cash surcharge for the upgrade?

    No experience since I have never been able to use them except a cat 1 - 4... But then I have never had an issue using them at a cat 1 - 4 but there have been many times I wished I could have paid a few extra dollars/points to upgrade to a higher cat...

    I tried once to do this for a stay at the Key Bridge Marriott.

     

    Talked to several different people in customer service, platinum line, etc, and no one offered any other solution that to book a property that is cat 4 or lower.

     

    Anyone else get any other options when trying to use these?

    To my knowledge, and the question has been asked many times in this forum, the Category 1-4 certificates can be used only in a cetegory 1-4 property. No upgrades to better properties, no higher tier for additional cash or points, nothing beyond cat 1-4.
