Can you gift an spg reservation, and still receive the 5th night free?

Any DP's on booking SPG reservation through UR portal and receiving status benefits (upgrade) by calling and having them add reservation to your SPG account or emailing hotel property in advance? If it helps the account would have platinum status. Would prefer to not rely on getting there and hoping they add my status to the reservation once at check in desk...

DPs wouldn't help unless you ask for the specific hotel. It's YMMV and officially status is not recognized if you don't book through SPG

when you check in for the 4 nights at the front desk, that is when they can add on the 5th night free.

i have 30k spg in one account and i want to transfer it into my marriot account. the problem is my marriott account is already linked up to a spg account. i dont have  the 5 days time to wait for the  transfer between spg accounts and my spg account is not even 30 days old anyway, can I link up a new spg account to my already linked up marriott? or can I delink my old spg account and put this new one in instead? thanks

The above referenced  account is currently inaccessible as there are strong indicators that multiple accounts were created and are being controlled by the same person and were created to override SPG® Program parameters.
 
Some recent Starpoint purchases were flagged in our system as there are requests entered on each account to have the purchased points transferred to your account.
 
The accounts have the same surname and mailing address that is on your Platinum account profile. A request to legitimize the accounts was sent to each of individual email address.
 
Please submit a valid, government issued picture ID bearing your name and current mailing address via return email.
 
Please conceal the identification number itself as we do not require that information.  We only need to confirm your name and mailing address to legitimize the account.
 
Each account will need to be legitimized before all accounts can be released. I just got this email when attempting to transfer from multiple accounts

has anyone had this issue before? my problem is that even though I did send proof of identity I signed up making spg accounts using random first names ,even with the same last name and the address  on each account I created it still  might not match up to the identities I emailed them, as the first name is different on the account then the actual passport . also,what happens if I spent 1967 dollars  to buy spg points on sale and Starwood decides to close my account ? would they give me a refund or would I have to  do a chargeback with amex?

You used random first names? Is it more than one ?
