Platinum and Brussels Marriott Hotel Grand Place

Hi Guys,

 

New here and just looking to figure a few things out.  I made platinum last year (starting the current job in June) and had 44 rollover nights to give you an idea and another ~65 nights planned through April.  I've been a Rewards Member for years (2001), but have never been more than Silver before this new job.

 

Planing a trip to Brussels (for pleasure this time)  and see a few points options:

 

Marriott Rewards Redemption: 40K per night

Deluxe room, Guest room, 1 King or 2 Twin/Single Bed(s)

 

Marriott Rewards Redemption with Points Upgrade: 45K per night

Club Room, Executive lounge access, Guest room, 1 King or 2 Twin/Single Bed(s)


If I am a Platinum Elite member won't I get lounge access already? 


I see there were questions in the past about the lounge being open weekends.  It was confirmed open, but that was 2012/2013.  Does anyone know if there are any changes?


Thanks.

    Yes, you get access already as a platinum, so no need to pay extra.  Yes, it is open on the weekend unlike most CLs in the US.  If you have any flexibility as to dates, may I suggest visiting August 12-15 when the flower carpet will be on display?  They only do this every other year, and it's honestly one of the coolest things I've ever seen while traveling, and I've done a lot of traveling.

      It appears my wife will be going back, so maybe one day I will see the flower carpet.  The Brussels Marriott was very nice and I got exactly what you said.  Thanks for the response.

    You should get lounge access and you might get upgraded if you pick the cheaper option.
