Hi jerseyshore, welcome to Insiders! I have gone ahead and sent you a private message to get the conversation started. Please let me know if you have not received it.
As an informative point I would advise that the challenge is to complete 6 stays by the last day of the month 2 months after the challenge is granted. In other words, if the challenge is issued today you'll need to make 6 stays by end April 2016. A stay is defined as one or more consecutive nights at a single hotel. One 6-night booking from 20th to 26th Feb is one stay only as is a single night booking. It is possible to complete the challenge in 6 nights and in the same area, staying at hotel A on night 1, hotel B on night 2, A on night 3, B in night 4, A on night 5 and back to B for night 6. Note that staying at the same hotel for 6 consecutive nights will only count as one stay, even if you do it in 6 seperate reservations.
Gold is very well worthwhile for those staying mainly at Full service hotels, that's JW Marriott, Autograph, Renaissance and of course Marriotts themselves giving as it does space available room upgrades (though very seldom suites), guaranteed free lounge access and guaranteed 7 day per week free breakfast, usually in the Lounge, sometimes the restaurant. Though it does also garner extra points over silver it's actually only half a point per $ spent.
GOod luck to you all, fellow travellers
