Why can’t they make the Lifetime Platinum status as the Lifetime Platinum PREMIER ELITE status with Lifetime Ambassador support, instead of the regular lifetime platinum?!

Not enough ambassadors for all of us lifetime platinum folks. Would probably have to triple the staff which doesn't make economic sense

Never found the Ambassador to be helpful anyway. They can’t really pull strings

Op- how did you manage that many nights with so few points?

like

M1: pretty sure those are current points, not lifetime points.

M1, Accenture 1 is right.. these are current points. I use my points consistently for vacation. Same with my airline, sitting at about 100k now, but accumulated over 1 million over the years.. I am a big spender when it comes to points. You earn, you spend ;) lol

My SPG ambassador was helpful but yes in general they don’t do much.... it is sometimes still nice to have ... just to have it :) lol

Op - agree - nice perk. But my internal assistant is much better

Man, is that really saying what I think it's saying, 1200 nights at this chain? I feel for you OP.

@kpmg1, when I transferred I was at 1350ish. And I've been a Hilton and/or Hyatt loyalist at different times.

Damn y'all travel a lot.
