I am 2 nights away from being grandfathered into SPG’s lifetime platinum (10 years, 498 nights). Think they’ll give it to me if I ask? Not able / willing to book 2 more nights this calendar year.

Omg book it and check in and leave...

I’ve booked a category 1 using points in a random city and “checked in” by phone to get nights I needed by the end of the year. I suggest doing something similar. 15,000 Marriott points for lifetime status is worth it.

Checking in by phone could change the situation. May give this a try... thanks

They won’t

I’d call a cat 1 property before booking, talk to the front desk, and let them know you’re two nights short for status and want to just make a booking and have them check you in without you having to come in. If they’re cool with it, make the booking. If not, try a different property. I did this years ago at a Four Points, IIRC

You can check in by phone. Did this so many times. Now with app maybe even phone is not required.

The phone can act as a key in some places

OP, If you book it for Philadelphia I don’t mind checking in for you. I live around a lot of Marriott properties

Why can’t you book two more nights this year? Are you not in a location with a Marriott property around? Definitely worth it to do whatever you can for those last two nights!

Correct re: location

Just did a mobile check-in from a different city. Totally doable

Is anyone you know staying at a Marriott two nights by then? If you are added to the reservation with your number you should get credit

Just do it. Absolutely worth it. Two nights isn't much.

Has anyone done a mobile check in like this for night credits at a Hyatt property?

Just make sure if you do mobile check in from afar that you pick one that allows your phone to act as the key. If they have the older magnetic stripe keys, you will still have to stop by the front desk to complete your mobile check-in

What happens if you book next year? Won’t you hit it then?

The target changes from 500 to 600 next year

OP did you book? Do it dude/ette! Just do it...
