Why did Marriott suddenly notified me that I have platinum status? I didn’t do anything with my card over the last few weeks, and I only have 27 nights this year. Thanks!

Have lifetime Bonvoy gold elite, no longer traveling much and won’t be able to hit platinum each year. Expect to travel 15-20 nights a year, should I go the CC and spend route to get to lifetime platinum or switch to Hyatt and aim for their explorist status to get better value for the same low status?

Marriott Bonvoy question:

Do you accumulate elite night credits when you book a room using a Marriott Bonvoy points?

I am staying in a Bonvoy property. Last night I saw two spiders in my shower. I asked the front desk to please remove them. I get to my shower tonight and there's another spider in there. I hate to be a pain but this is ridiculous. Would points be a reasonable compensation? How many?

I’m a JetBlue/Marriott person but hear that these are the of the worst partners to transfer points to from Chase - thoughts on what to do instead? I don’t have status with other hotels/airlines so unsure how worth transferring elsewhere (Hyatt, Delta) would be?

If flying, I’m looking for something reasonably priced (I recognize it is a big travel week, but I can’t stomach $2k for coach to Mexico). Any ideas?

Just got the CSR card. Debating whether to continue using my AX Blue Preferred (6% groceries, 3% gas), CapOne Savor (4% restaurants), Hilton AX for hotels only (no annual fe, and Bonvoy Visa for hotels. Continuing to pay for the Bonvoy is nice since it gives a free night every year. Also continuing to pay for AA and UA cards for the free luggage check and priority boarding, but don’t use them otherwise. I feel like I’m paying a lot of annual fees now and there’s something to consolidate here.
