Help kindly sought clearing up a question re Marriott Gold benefits?

    [B][I]Firstly, thanks for reading this and sorry if my question strikes many as blindingly obvious![/I][/B]

    I just wanted to confirm the following: [COLOR=#ff0000]does Marriott Gold status entitle the status holder to [B][U]free breakfasts[/U][/B] at[/COLOR] [B]Ritz-Carlton[/B] [COLOR=#ff0000]hotels[/COLOR] (in my case, the one overlooking Central Park, NYC)?

    I ask simply as one well-known blogger site quotes a “yes” to the above question; FT, on the other hand, seems unanimously to say “no” to this; and thus I am not sure who to believe. My hunch is to err with the FTers, sadly.

    Could anyone put me out of my misery?[/B] 🙂

    Thanks so much!
