It has less to do with luck than it has to do with how many stays you make at starwood properties  ::)
Or if you own a SPG property.
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.

it really has noting to do with the amount of stays. dan is right, one of the ways to get it is by owning a spg hotel.

just had a stay where I stepped on an open safety pin causing my toe to bleed and other housekeeping issues. Would you all reccomend an email/letter to management or a corporate address?
How do you find a manager's email?

I dont know exactly what your problem was, but please leave it and be happy with what you got. I know the staff and managers there very well, they are having it too much from us guys. Lets be happy they are still around.
