I’ve only ever been upgraded at 2 Marriott properties in the 8 years I’ve been doing this. Just like others have said, highly dependent on property. I’ve also been at crap properties off the highway and even nothing there. I barely even get greeted with the little tag line for being a Titanium. Really debating Hyatt.....but that may be masochistic in terms of availability

I am upgraded almost always. Often to better views / executive rooms, but many times to suites as well. Some hotels upgrade me to suite in every single stay. Then, if I need it for any special reason, I ask and sometimes get the +100sqm suites / apartments.

Higher floor. Corner room. Quieter room (courtyard view vs busy street). Upgraded a level or two up, or to a suite. Free breakfast buffet or parking. Just depends on the specific property, the chain, etc.

This. It’s highly dependent on the hotel. If you’re at a big business hotel in a major city, you’ll get nothing and like it. A random courtyard on the side of a highway? Might get a suite. Depends greatly.

Do you usually get upgraded at platinum when you’re travelling on weekend personal trips (ie not during the week when everyone else is Ambassador)?

I was upgraded in Puerto Rico to ocean view on personal travel and I’m only gold

Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding.

She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.
