ss - I have the answer! Since you are already LifeTime Platimum, there would be 0 nights needed to maintain your current level. However, since you have nights toward the next level, it must mean that Marriott will be announcing a new Plutonium level which you will need to qualify for........ do I win the prize??
I hear rumors that the current administration is considering making ss the first 'hotel czar'! Of course, he will favor the Marriott chain and Insiders as well. this could be the break we have all been looking for......... lots of free stuff. Only scry part is that, as czar, he will need to be showering ALL guests with the same perks.
