I was just at the Rive Gauche at the end of October and I am Platinum Elite and had full access to the lounge (it's very nice with free internet and pretty good food) The lounge is closed on the weekends. We were upgraded to a suite for the week and the manager personally came out to greet us when we checked in. We also received a bottle of wine and a cheese plate from the manager as well as my points since I had said we weren't interested in the welcome gift. We plan on making this our "go to" hotel in Paris.
