Membership Levels Reset but still at gold level?

Two years ago, I achieved gold status level and didn't expect to keep it after the first year since I don't spend many nights at hotels.  At the start of 2010 they grandfathers prior levels over and I remained at Gold level.

This year, with the reset I was expecting to drop down to silver or standard level but the website keeps identifying me as gold.

Where am I wrong in my understanding of the reset?  Should I have not stepped back a level or two.  I did not have a prior surpluse that would have carried me up to the Gold level.  I like being at Gold - and I'd like to understand why I am still there.

    I would have no idea, but I would suggest you not look a gift-horse in the eye.

    Assume that they are being nice and keep that Gold Card in your possession.  I have a friend who was made Platinum Lifetime years ago (though he did not meet the then more stringent quals) but he enjoys being kep at that lofty perch nonetheless.

    Likewise, tracyeg!  I have had something similar happen in the past, which I assumed was because even though I didn't have the number of nights, I did pay a huge amount of money for stays because of where they were.

     

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for the replies.  I appreciate the gift-horse and if this is a lifetime gold - well, thank you Marriott.

    tracyeg,

    When it comes to renewing Elite levels and possibly moving a member down a level, Marriott Rewards often looks at other loyalty criteria such as activity over the past three years, etc.  If you expected to be moved to Silver level and were not, it is very likely that you met this other criteria.  Hopefully you will continue to enjoy your Gold status, and continue to stay with us because of it!

    Thank you.  We're big Marriott fans and love staying at  locations wherever we travel.  The recent enhancements to the credit card terms with international charges going away was  a welcomed and wonderful surprise.
