Lifetime Platinum Status

Marriott has it right. Several years ago I received lifetime Platinum status. Instead of the usual "what have you done for me lately" mentality of airlines and other hotel chains, Marriott chooses to recognize long standing loyality. It has had the intended effect-I don't stay in Marriott properties any less.

Delta has gone in the same direction-1MM miles-lifetime silver, 2MM gold and 4MM platinum.

    What are the specific requirements for lifetime status.

    From the Marriott Website...

    As our ambassador has informed the community, we wanted to share with you a few updates made to all Elite level Lifetime criteria. As noted, the requirements regarding years enrolled in the program (at least 12) and nights stayed will not be changing. The main changes impact the point threshold. With this in mind, requirements are now as follows:
    Achieved Silver / Gold / Platinum Elite status one or more years

    Earned at least 1.2 million / 1.6 million / 2.0 million points

    Stayed at least 600 / 800 / 1000 nights

    I agree with you, totally.  I have also receive the same honor as you about 3 years ago (Platinum for life).  I look at the Marriott brand as my home away from home.

    I am quite confident I have achieved the status under the odler more stricter criteria, and an unsure MArriott Rep confirmed it, but I did not receive any kind of ackowledgement via mail or e-mail--should there be???  This is why I am doubting...I was told I will receive the acknowledgement in a year I Don't reach platinum, and then the Lifetime Status will kick in....does this make sense to anyone?

    Frankiesso et all:

     

    Congratulations. That's quite a remarkable achievement.  Earlier, we had quite a discussion on the topic.  When you have chance, feel free to add your thoughts: Good news for Lifetime Achievement

    Other than not needing to re-qualify, what, if any, benefits are attached to the Lifetime Platinum?  I still can't seem to get upgrades to anything more than a concierge level room 9 times out of 10.

    I have found that most associates merely see the word "Platinum" (P7 as I recall is the code in the reservation but that may have changed) and do not identify the lifetime or platinum premier as being a different variety of the honor.

     

    I have a sense that training to accommodate this special honor is needed, and hopefully is coming soon,
