Thank you for contacting Marriott Rewards.
On behalf of Marriott Rewards Guest Services, please allow me to extend an offer to you to conditionally upgrade your status to the Platinum Elite level. This new status would be valid through October 31, 2011; however, an updated membership card would not be processed until the following terms have been met.
In order to maintain this status, you must stay 18 paid nights beginning with the date the upgrade is processed, through October 31, 2011. This is a one-time offer, and would be effective within 24 to 48 hours of your acceptance of this upgrade offer.
Once you have stayed 18 paid nights, the Platinum Elite status will be extended until February 2013. To retain this status for all of 2013, you would need to stay the qualifying number of nights during 2012. The Silver Elite level requires 10 personal paid nights, the Gold Elite level requires 50 personal paid nights, and the Platinum Elite level requires 75 personal paid nights.
Should you be unable to stay the 18 paid nights during this trial period, your account would be returned to your original status, and you would need to stay the normal night requirements to regain this Platinum Elite level.
Elite nights earned through promotions that appear as non-stay nights in your account do not qualify for this offer.
Please reply to this email if you would like to accept this offer, and I will process the information to have your account upgraded and your eligible stays counted for the next few months.
Thank you for the opportunity to be of assistance and for making Marriott your preferred hotel chain.

>I am a frequent business traveler. Recently, after getting more and more disappointed with IHG and Shangri’la, I am considering to choose Marriott and SPG hotels during my business stays.
>As you can see in the following account status, I am Platinum member (Ambassador until last month) in IHG. Also, I stayed in Shangri’la frequently ( 49 nights last year). As I wrote to Shangri’la to ask for Platinum status (which requires 50 days). They turned me down. I am also Platinum member of SPG hotel groups. But sometimes there are no SPG hotels in the cities I am going, I need another Hotel chain to make my travel more convenient.
> My next travel is incoming, and I already booked a Marriott Hotel. So, can I ask for a status match to Platinum in Marriot, if that’s possible. I am confident that we will both benefit from this.
