If I convert my Amex points to Delta miles, do those miles count towards my MQMs? Going to be a couple thousand shy of hitting platinum on flights alone and want to see if this tips me over the edge

No. Basically nothing but flying counts for MQMs. You can also buy MQMs during certain periods throughout the year but they are ridiculously expensive and not worth it. Your best bet is to scope out a mileage run to hit Plat.

General musing - it seems like the vast majority of recs in here are for super expensive hotels and resorts (St Regis, etc). I work in consulting and make good money but can’t fathom spending $600+ a night on a hotel. Am I really in the minority or is it just that ppl staying at the Ritz want to show off?
