99 nights this year - Marriott. No idea how. Should I check into a cheap courtyard or something to hit 100 nights this year? I’m lifetime platinum so the only thing I suspect I will lose is my ambassador? Anyone in the same boat and already done the research? No idea how Marriott is honoring status next year. Thanks!

Do you already have $20k spend for this year? If not, hitting 100 nights won’t give you ambassador status anyway. We have 2019 status extended for 2021 anyway

I’m surprisingly close, again no idea how, but an $82 courtyard won’t put me over.

If you’re already ambassador, you will continue to be ambassador next year, 2021, regardless of nights and spend for 2020. The extra night will get you nothing unless Marriott does something for 2022 status based on a combination of 2020 and 2021 nights.

Thank you!! I just called them and referenced a PointsGuy post that says you still have to hit the 100 nights + $20k spend...which I won’t get with an $82 courtyard. As you said, they reinforced my status will stay for 2021 but didn’t mention anything beyond.

Ditto! Glad I asked and saved myself from a night in a courtyard. Happy New Year!

There are tons of marriott correspondence on the topic that you can locate via a simple Google search. That would be the best and most complete source of info

Of note, the reason your night totals feels crazy is because they gave everyone a large lump sum of nights based on your 2019 status earned to help with earning annual rewards and lifetime status

This was in addition to guaranteeing everyone would stay at least at their current status through 2021

My spend is also absurdly high for what doesn’t feel like very many actual nights in a hotel this year - but I was overseas most of January and Feb and adding weekend stays amplifies spend (especially in UK). I was only $3k short of not hitting the $20k threshold.

What are the minimum spends for Platinum vs Titanium? Tried searching yesterday but the results I saw only referenced night minimums

$0
