Marriott Rewards - Benefits of Temporarily Switching to Ritz?

Hi all,

I've been a Marriott Rewards member for several years now, Platinum for the past three.  I had never stayed in a Ritz-Carlton property before this past summer in Moscow, and I have to say I was pretty disappointed that lounge access was not included for Platinum Marriott Rewards members (though they did graciously give us an upgraded room with a great view!).


I understand that Marriott Rewards members are not included in the free lounge access that Ritz-Carlton rewards members receive, and that you can also freely switch your accounts between Marriott and Ritz-Carlton.  My question for you all is whether you can switch your account just before you stay at a Ritz-Carlton, receive the benefits of your platinum membership for your stay, and then switch back to the Marriott program.  Has anyone ever done this?

(For each location tag, you will be guided through a 3-step process to add (1) a city and a state or a city and a country, (2) a Marriott brand, and (3) a Marriott hotel.)
