do Platinum elites get early check-in?
Early check in is not one of the Platinum Elite Benefits. For a nice breakdown of benefits by status level, please click here: Marriott Rewards | Member Benefits At A Glance.
The AC Hotel in Chicago (just ask platpboy4ever) allowed me to check in at 9am. That was awfully nice of the front desk folks. I had an early flight..checked in...then hit the road for the day.
Early check in isn't a "defined" or guaranteed benefit with Marriott, but as many platinums can attest, I seldom get turned away for checking in early. Starwood has a "Your24" benefit for SPG75, which lets you select identical check in & check out times. For instance I can tell them I want to arrive at 11am, then on check out date, also leave by 11am. Or check in at 8pm & check out at 8pm on departure date. But they also note that since platinums get guaranteed 4pm late checkout as a separate benefit, you can combine the two benefits. So I can select arrival before 4pm as per the Your24 benefit , I can also select guaranteed late check out to stay as late as 4pm
