Spg Ambassadors, do you find you get upgraded pretty frequently? Or is it about the same as a regular Platinum

My ambassador was about as useful as a pre-recorded FAQ machine....... :| No gifts, declined upgrades (even using vouchers) and even late checkouts that hotels were then able to accommodate when I asked directly

I didn’t see any difference in upgrades when booking with ambassadors. They did reach out to hotel for special requests for me. Did this a couple times when in vacation and wanted something ready for the kids when I checked in

No difference - got a monogrammed St. Regis robe for my birthday

When you ask your ambassador for an upgrade, I've always gotten it. On your own, it's about the same as a platinum.

Just booked a stay for February for them and read the following “Hotel rewards e-certificates can only be requested by a Marriott Rewards member for a reservation in that member's own name.
