Absolutely. Suggest you call the Platinum member line, not reserve online.

Yes

Make sure you put their name on reservation. But yes, they will

If you aren’t there, then 50/50 chance depending on who checks them in and if you have the same last name.

Make the reservation under your name, call in post reservation to platinum line and have one of your parents added to the reservation. To be extra safe sometimes I call hotel to let them know I’ll be arriving late and to make sure whoever I’m doing this for can check in with no problems.

What benefit are you interested in? If lounge access - yes.

@M1 upgraded room , breakfast and evening lounge access

Yes, did that recently and worked out well
