First time post with a question that, I'm sure, has been asked before. What are the nights required for Lifetime Elite Status and where can I find this info on the Marriott website. Thanks.
First link is for benefits at each level (Silver, Gold, Platinum)
I did not find a link for lifetime, but I know I received my lifetime platinum at 1000 nights. I also believe there is a minimum of 10 years of membership as well.

Also note, that when looking at a posted topic, if you look to the right of the screen it says, "More Like This" and lists other relevant posts on the topic.
Or check under "Groups & Topics" for the category on "Marriott Rewards"
danola.... the lifetime criteria is under going a review, but here is the current situation:
All 3 levels require 12 yrs in the program
Lifetime Silver 600 nights and 1,200,000 points
Lifetime Gold 800 nights and 1,600,000 points
Lifetime Platinum 1000 nights and 2,000,000 points
Oh..I forgot. To qualify for Lifetime Platinum, you had to achieve Platinum level at least for one yr. I'm guessing the same goes for Lifetime Gold.... Need to have been at least Gold for one yr.
My guess is if they change anything it will be to require more than 1 year at the level one is seeking. Other competitors require more years at the level before granting liketime status.
That is fine with me, as I have Platinum status for multiple years! I wonder if they'll add any addiitonal pre-requisites.
Who knows! I use other hotel chains to guess and from that it would just be requiring more years at the status desired as well as # nts and points.
Me too, was platinum for several years in a row.
Oh my, 12 years? I have just given up on reaching the Lifetime Platinum... I made it into Plat traveling for business my first year. This is my second year as I am now on another month(s) or more stay. Thank you for the info.
This is a 5 yr old thread. Marriott lowered the lifetime requirements for nights and points. They totally did away with the 12 years in the program requirement, also.
The current targets for Marriott Lifetime Status are:
Lifetime Silver: 1.2 million points earned and 250 nights stayed
Lifetime Gold: 1.6 million points earned and 500 nights stayed
Lifetime Platinum: 2.0 million points earned and 750 nights stayed
Earning Lifetime Platinum status a member must have and requires:
· Minimum 12 years Marriott Rewards membership
· At least one membership year as a Platinum Elite
· 1,000+ qualified Marriott hotel nights earned
· Earned 2,000,000 points
Earning Lifetime Gold status a member must have and requires:
· Minimum 12 years Marriott reward membership
· At least one year of earned Gold Elite
· 800 qualified Marriott hotel nights earned
· Earned 1,600,000 points
Earning Lifetime Silver status and member requires:
· At least one year of earned Siler Elite
· Earned 1,200,000 points
A note of caution; Marriot is continually devaluating the value of of Marriott Rewards points and earned benefits, secondly many of the employees while you are registering do know or seems to be aware or recognize your levels. Thus, do limit your expectations and do not go crazy.
Correction: S/B 600 nights for Silver...
· 600 qualified Marriott hotel nights earned
Is this posted on the website anywhere, as I could not find a link to this.
Or is this information from calling Marriott Rewards?
e.g., if its not publically posted on the website, it more likely to be changed.
Equally important, and I am not trying to move onto another subject here, is the lack of knowledge of these programs by the Marriott hotel check-in employees who represent the first point-of contact between you and the destination hotel your are checking into! Very few are aware of these lifetime levels and the requirements around them.
Not unusual that frequent travelers know more about a vendor operation that many of the vendor employees
I also put in this category, travel agency, corporate travel, and a whole host of people that book trips for you but never travel so have no idea what is to walk a day in the shoes of a frequent traveler.
