yes they usually give gold members until 2 pm
They officially give 4pm checkout, although it's subject to availability.

no not guaranteed. It's based on availability. But better chance for plat than gold

I'm looking at a room that shows 2 options for "hot escapes" one of them is $8 cheaper but says "eligible ID required at check in. Will I have a problem adding a guest?

Even platinum can't guarantee an upgrade.

A plat making and paying for the reservation will def. help with the chances of an upgrade....but.... there is def. no guarantee even with high level plat. that you will get it. you have a better shot with properties with a large amount of suites (avail.)

a plat with a suite night-upgrade certificate can be guaranteed and pre-reserved.

On that note, Does anyone have a plat account with 3 suite night upgrades? 2 might work as well.
TIA
