Any information or insight would be greatly appreciated. I have an upcoming long term stay at the Marriott Crystal City (Reagan) for 30+ nights. I currently have Silver, but I wanted to know if it was possible to get Gold status during this stay. I believe I will get the Gold status afterwards, but is there anyway I could get a Gold advance?
I tried emailing, but the response I got back was that there are no current tastes/challenges at the moment. Should I try calling?
Everyone's mileage may be different....but here's the way I would handle it if I were in your shoes. I'd wait until I'm checked in, maybe 24 hours after check-in, then call. Hopefully, you'll get someone who will have empathy for your situation and will either upgrade you or issue a challenge. My experience (except for one time) is that the rewards reps are helpful and I believe its within their ability to honor your request....and the evidence of having checked in for your lengthy stay...may help. If they do upgrade you, visit the front desk to make sure they know. Good Luck!
