They did not let us do that in FL. Both of were present, but day 1 was a non-plat reservation while Days 2-5 were plat reservations.
They didn't even let us go to the club lounge until my plat reservation applied the next day. This was even while we were both there, in FL staying in the same room...

Of course they wont allow it if it was booked from a non-plat account. I was implying that if it was booked using a plat account you can get the benefits even if you are not the accountholder

Why did you do that and not the opposite - have the non-plat day at the end of the stay?

How does it work with gold?  Do they actually upgrade?  What about if the person staying isn't the actual account holder?

If its available then definitely. You don't need to be the account holder.

We could have switched it on the spot, as we've done in the past.
This FL location had just finished Yeshiva Week and perhaps they were overworked -- the lady at the counter had zero interest in working to accomodate the situation.

Nope. Its like SPG gold :)
I've always found them to be extremely accommodating when it comes to gold upgrades. I have gotten upgraded to an executive suite from a standard room many times even though they are only required to upgrade you tot he next level (ie - deluxe room)

If I pay using a credit card other than my Amex SPG card at a SPG hotel for a room that's booked under my account, do I still get the 3x Platinum bonus?

I would imagine not. How would that work? SPG would give you 3x UR points?
