Marriott Exec Lounge guesting for elites
I’d like to know if you read the MR T&Cs the same way I do.
If I’m a MR Plat (booking in my name) & my partner is a MR Gold and we book one room for all three of us at a standard Marriott with an additional (non-member) booked validly into the same room (and let’s say that we book the cheapest available room with no lounge access in and of itself with any package, for the sake of argument); is that third ‘non-member’ guest then able to be guested by one of us into the Executive Lounge for the purpose of accessing the continental breakfast & evening hors d’oeuvres etc that the two of us already receive individually in our own right in the lounge as elites?
Unofficially, I’ve never had an issue bringing guests into the lounge as a Platinum or Gold Marriott member. I’ve often had coworkers join me for a drink, coffee, breakfast, etc. They simply just walk in with me.
If you’re asking more to see if that third guest would have their own access with their own key card, I would assume the answer is no. If possible, I’d just ask for multiple key cards tied to your room as the Platinum guest.
