Why shouldn’t they? It’s not like they’re losing rooms that way.

But giving elite benefits actually effects their bottom line, so they need to find a way out.
not if they think that those customers would be paying cash otherwise...

You can book point rooms for anyone.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I am currently staying here and bought somebody’s free nights who is platinum. Upon checkin they told me that unless the person who is platinum member shows up to the hotel I won’t get any platinum benefits (i.e. room upgrade, free breakfast, 4pm late checkout).

I didn’t put up a fight but is that accurate?

the guy who booked your reservation can call and add your name to the existing reservation, to explain that you will be arriving first and checking in first.

Would they honor the third party's guest status if the account used to book it is Platinum, and the guest staying is Gold, for example?

I recall seeing the Marriott T&C mentioning you may only gift up to 20 nights a year.

Any ideas on how to get them to open the secind night. Booked one night and now need second. Thats the only night that week that is not available. A random Tuesday night.
I called reservations dept and they opened a night for me to end my stay.

It's an amazing points value right now, it's a gorgeous hotel, it's Miami in the winter, and it's an amazing location for the best kosher restaurants and shuls in Miami. Well, not the best huls, but good shuls nonetheless. :)

בעצם, why is the St Regis better than the Ritz Carlton?
