I am Platinum status and am planning a stay in New York in a couple weeks using points. I will be bringing my family (2 teens) and wanted to know what my platinum status would get me. How successful have any of you been in getting upgraded because of your status? Does Platinum status get you anything else like free breakfast there? I am thinking of staying near Times Square and wondered which hotel would be the best to stay at. Also, if we are flying into LGA, should we use the bus/subway, take a cab or use Uber? Thank you for any feedback!!
