I am using Marriott points to stay at the Ritz Bachelor Gulch in Feb. Will my Marriott Platinum status give me a good chance for an upgraded room at the Ritz? Is there anything I can do to increase my chances of getting an upgrade?
My experience is I have gotten nothing for my Platinum statues at the Ritz. I have stayed there about 5 times usually used points as well. They said I have a small room upgrade – but I couldn’t tell from the room it was any better than others. With my last stay in September I got free internet. But I think that was mostly due to the 30 minutes it took to check me in. I would still keep my hopes up for an upgrade… but don’t be disappointed if you don’t get it.
