I also just achieved the lovely Premier level :) I have spent well over 140nights for the past few years running so I'm assuming this is how I met the requirements.
I did get bumped last night from my hotel...thought that would not happen with PP status. They made up for it in spades however today so perhaps rank does have its value :)
Congrats for making the status!
Does anyone know if this gets us any better upgrades when we use our points at hotels?
Thanks! I was afraid of that....and yes its one of my biggest complaints as well. Cash is king but you've spent a lot of time and money to get to Platinum, even more to get to PP, top tier folks should get upgraded no matter what. I've had some success in getting good rooms and upgrades on points, but its not the norm. heck even using "cash" I have not been upgraded in hotels that surely have better rooms....and as noted, I was bumped from my hotel to a neighboring marriott property as a PP just this week. Seems that status counts at times, other times... not so much :(
