I understand that booking through a third-party site, such as Hotels.com does not qualify as GP Eligible Rate, and hence will not earn points/credits for the stay. But I was wondering if you manage to get your GP# attached to the booking (through a third-party site), will your elite status be recognized? In which case, would you be able to receive benefits (i.e. complimentary stuff)? Or is this a gray "it depends" area? Thanks!
