CL CHARGES

In Asia staying at Marriott with a CL, there is always complimentary alcohol,  I recently stayed at two Marriotts with CL's in Detroit/Southfield and Schaumburg ill both had charges for alcohol.   Is this a common practice for CL's in the USA?  I am platinum elite if that matters

    Yes, it is generally the rule in the US CLs that you pay for any alcoholic beverage.  Doesn't matter what your status is.

    Yes, most concierge lounges have honor bars, whether you are platinum or the guest of a gold member. You might also consider a tip, especially if the concierge is helpful.

      You make a good point about tipping the concierge.  I normally tip at the end of my stay unless the concierge is a zombie.
