What Is Marriott Platinum Five Star Status?

After the merge with Starwood in August this year, Marriott has introduced the following tier levels for members to earn:

  • Member
  • Silver Elite
  • Gold Elite
  • Platinum Elite
  • Platinum Premier Elite
  • Platinum Premier Elite with Ambassador

All the of the above status offers elevated level of benefits to members who has stayed enough nights to achieve it. However, while I was browsing through some reviews for certain properties, a new category has been listed as Platinum Five Star.

In case many of you don’t know either, here’s the info I can dig up on this status.

“Plat 5 star status is only for a very, very few people out there. It is basically someone who either lives at a high end Marriott property, a person on the Board of Directors of Marriott or some other influential person (like Mitt Romney). It appears the designation is given by Mr. Marriott personally.”


“our team confirmed that the Platinum Five Star is not a status members can earn. It is a VIP status.”


I am curious to see what kind of benefits Platinum Five Star elites get at Marriott properties, maybe they can just forgone the hassle of fulfill nights requirement each year and still enjoy normal Platinum benefits? or maybe they are even more prioritized than Platinum Premier Elite with Ambassador elites as if they are already the exclusive few?

Albert K. Field Albert is my name, and travel the world is my game. I began my passion for travel at a very young age, I started this website as a strong means to further explore the world of frequent flyers programs (FFP). The relationship between customers and service providers in the aviation and hospitality industry always seems to be in opposition, however, since the introduction of United Airlines’ Frequent Flyers Programm since 1972*. This has significantly eased the middle spectrum between 2 parties. While the aim of airlines is still to generate more revenue; but for us,as consumers, are also given the opportunity to participate in the bargaining and exploiting from service providers. Living in a world of globalization where big data becomes vital for simulating successful economical activities, most of us will have to travel to other locations whether willingly or unwillingly, while you hearing all this fascinating stories about others, In fact, you too, can blend into the trend. It may not sound like how media illustrates, but indeed there are possibilities for us to have more spontaneous travel without getting held back by financial situation. My website consists of reviews of airline premium cabin products,airport lounges and stay reports of 5-star hotels and their executive lounges across the globe. In addition to all of that, I care the most about their frequent flyers program and loyalty program, which also includes banking partners. Plus, I spontaneously put up reviews and news update regarding premium water brands and restaurants. The purpose of this website is to share all of this information with my audience as well as inviting you to be part of my journey.
