it's generally just an issue to swipe your room card to obtain access. Never been asked for ID. If you had 3 rooms cards, then probably each cardholder could 'technically' walk in with 4 people each. Many locations are open 24/7.

in the past, the Plat status got you the plat room/Club Floor upgrade. This automatically gives your room keys the access to the Club Floor in the elevator and the same room cards allow you to swipe to gain access into the club lounge. If you ask for 3 room keys when you arrive, then that would work the same. We enjoyed the plat status access to the quieter and emptier club lounges while it lasted. Great food and free drink selection, a private "living room" that was empty during the super bowl, and a good place to use computers and printers for business for free when needed.

Technically it's the primary cardholder and one registered guest staying in the  same room.  As always, YMMV

So 210 stays/nights in 10 years. If you do 21 weekend 1 night stays a year for the next 10 years at a Cat 1 (2k SPG per night), that's 420k SPG for Lifetime Platinum.

If you churn multiple business cards yearly its more
