gold will give you an high ocean facing view, but, generally difficult to get them to give you a suite on gold.  They were, at least in my experiences, tight about even giving  a room with porch. (Obviously - how manyopen room they have will make a diff.)

That's just plain old dishonest. If everyone had 'an extremely special occasion' every time they stayed at a hotel, hotels would take these requests much less seriously.

You can easily get an Amex promo matched without lying.

It's one thing to take advantage of a temporary deal while it's alive, it's another thing completely to be the boy who cried wolf.

Sheraton tlv will not give a spg gold lounge access although you probably will get a room in the "towers" on a club level floor.
