I see they are now doing a lifetime status, and I see it is based on nights and points, ok I can see the nights I have stayed since joining but over the years I have swapped points for miles and rewards. Does this mean that to get to the lifetime status I must accumalate all of the points a(1.2 million for silver) and keep them in my account, it says track your status in My Account, but that only gives the current number in my account?
You don't have to retain all your points to qualify...everything that you have earned counts. You need to call MR customer service to get your lifetime total. The number does not show up on the web, but the MR people have it handy.
