    The lounge itself counts for more than "little things" at eighty nights a year I figure I Save at least about 800-1000 dollars a year just on breakfast.

    Congratulations! Marriott gold is hard to get and you apparently like staying there so I'm sure that status will be of some help!

    Gold is definitely the sweet spot -- not like I wouldn't encourage you to try for Platinum, of course. Platinum gets you more points, and UA silver status. But I'd be happy with gold.

    Yes, MR Gold is a very good and handy card to have. I would/could never make it meeting the normal requirements of astronomical 50 nights but have had now 3 years straight because of Gold challenge (1st year), then bought status back 20000 MR points (2nd year) and now because of UA Gold. However I have had no paid stays with them since April as I am missing the stay twice get one free Cat 1-5 night free.... I have used a number earned MR certificates though.
