Suite nights. Easy choice

Suite nights for sure.

I would tend to agree with suite nights, but I've used a total of 5 over the last 2 years. Not that I don't try to use them, I always do. But the success rate has not been good lately. Any advice on how to improve chances?

Use them during the work week IF you are reaching that expiration deadline and you have a balance.

They last the full next year, S&1. He/she will have 20 until they use them or the year ends and last year's 10 expire

Definitely suite nights. Generally I use them on shorter trips in non-peak hotels. Been pretty successful so far on redemption.

I am going to have 20 suite nights when I renew platinum this year (2 more weeks). I get upgraded the majority of the time when I am on the road anyway so not sure if I should go for that again.

Suite nights!

What does suite nights entail?

You will have only 10. Suite nights do not roll over

St& - I earned 10 late last year. Will earn the next ten early this year. I will have 20. Tell me more about my personal SPG account...

Do u think u can hit 75? I would do 5 towards next status... Only 10 nights left
