My employer pays the hotel directly for my stays throughout the world. I do not have to use a credit card or seek reimbursement for the stay. However, I am currently a Platinum Elite (and lifetime Gold) member and have had problems receiving the Platinum perks. I have read the Marriott Rewards Membership information and cannot find any reference if contract rates exclude Platinum perks. Any insight?
Hey ip241au, Platinum members are eligible to receive any Elite benefit, except for earning points and Elite Nights, since the room is being paid for by your employer. The most popular benefit is the concierge lounge, and Platinum members have access to that regardless of how your room is paid for. Does that help answer your question? Let me know and I'm happy to do more digging if needed.
