    Hi all,

    Some of the SPG changes really have me thinking about switching over from Marriott. I have some dumb questions and I think I already know the answers but want a confirmation.

    Can I stack AMEXs towards a faster Platinum status? i.e. AMEX Platinum to Gold and AMEX SPG bonus nights.

    Also, which SPG brand(s) have lounges? Through my search, I think Sheraton is the only one?

    Thanks!

    Ed

    AFAIK, Sheratons & some Westins have club lounges.

    Having both the SPG personal & biz AmEx cards gives a nice headstart towards requal (2 stays/5 nts per card)! Then having both award stays & pts+cash stays count towards status is a plus!
