SPG Champion, Is it possible for Platinums who failed to re-qualify (43/50 nights) to get some sort of stay challenge to not lose platinum status? The SPG platinum desk has only responded with canned emails, which I can only assume means either i am not being clear with my question or that the answer is no. Hopefully, someone can give me a simple yes/no answer. Why I am asking this as I am scheduled to spend 3 nights / week over the next few months in houston on a new engagement and I can stay at either a specific marriott or a specific spg property. Now I am not asking for a complimentary upgrade to platinum, but i am wondering if it is possible for some sort of stay challenge to keep my platinum status. I am currently booked out till 02/28 (will hit 20 nights) at the SPG property, but obviously if it isnt going to work then i can switch to the Marriott as it makes more sense as I am a LT Platinum with Marriott. I am not hopeful for a positive answer, but if there is anything someone is aware of, I would really appreciate the insight.
