Just wonder how we count the rollover night if my total night stay >149. Let's assume I have 151 nights at the end of the year 2014, and my Platinum Elite expire in 2015, since I have already reach THE FIRST 75 nights, my Platinum is now extended to 2016.
so, in 2015, will I get 151- 75 = 76 rollover nights? or I will get 151-75*2= 1 rollover night?
of course no mater how we count, that 76 will give me another year of Platinum, but I just wonder if I can get 76 nights rollover, so that I may be able to reach 200+ night following my current stay pattern next year.
Rollover nights only count once, towards requalification only during the year they are carried into.
SO if I stay 85 nights in 2014, 10 will rollover to 2015 meaning I only need stay* 65 nights to requalify as Plat. If however I stay 70 nights (making my night counter 80 for the year) whilst I will requalify (70 stayed plus the 10 rolled over from 2014) NO NIGHTS rollover to 2016 because I didn't stay the 75 nights In 2015.
Lets say I stay 85 nights in 2014, as above 10 rollover to 2015. I stay 85 nights again in 2015, then 10 nights again rollover to 2016, because that was my excess stayed in 2015.
SO, taking your example:
In 2014 you stay 151 nights so 76 rollover to 2015. Another 151 nights stayed in 2015 takes year total to 227, that's 152 nights more than needed for Plat, but only the excess over Plat stayed in 2015 rolls over, that's 76 nights again. In 2016 no nights are stayed, even so you requalify for plat due to rollover from 2015 but NO NIGHTS rollover to 2017 because you didn't actually stay any nights over the 75 in 2016 ( in fact having stayed nil during 2016).
Rollover is therefore a 1 trick pony. It was bought in due to the recession and I found it worked well for me. In 2009 I stayed 100 nights, hence rolling over 25 to 2010. In 2010 I stayed only 55 nights but re-qualified due to the rollover. Admittedly my counter for 2010 said 80 nights but the extra 5 didn't rollover because I hadn't stayed 75 nights in 2010.
*By stay I mean all nights credited to your account by any means except rollovers, that is to say nights credited as a result of carrying the Marriott credit card, and as a result of using it, plus nights credited from meetings or any other night credit promo.
