My room was absolutely lovely with views and quite large. I had an upgraded room due to my Marriott status. Good location. * Room service - I ordered soup. They brought no utensils. It took nearly 30 minutes for the utensils to be delivered. I had left a nice tip on a room

No you will not. My husband is also Gold member and I do not think they have a member's lounge and do not offer any perks like breakfast. Yo ufo get points and a check-in gift of points or water. They have a coffee machine and some cookies in the reception which is free for residents to take. That is what I remember.
