SPG Plat w/ ambassador - only allowed to bring 1 guest into the club lounge for breakfast/happy hour? They gave out wristbands, is this normal?

No, totally up to the hotel which it sounds like a “no”. Breakfast is for you and a guest for platinum status. Ambassador doesn’t get you an extra person. You can ask the manager but they would be doing you a favor with the third person. Don’t approach it feeling entitled with your “ambassador” status.

Yes. Can usually get a waiver if it’s your family. Bringing the whole team up is always frowned upon.

How can I get a waiver? Nope it’s just one additional guest, we’re traveling in a group of 3. Not sure if calling the ambassador will help

If it’s three adults, you have to pay for the third person

You plus three bro’s?

Depends on property which one are you talking about? Some have extremely high trafficked lounges.

What property? The only place that did the wristband thing for me was a resort hotel. I would never really expect it from a Sheraton or Westin.

The wristbands are not normal. However bringing in more than one guest being subject to a fee is normal, and doesn’t break the bank.

It's up to the hotel, usually if you speak politely to a manager, they'll let it slide.
