What's a Platinum Card Worth?

The drive down to Medford was uneventful (that's good) and relatively quick. (I find that I averaged 45 MPH driving from Mehama to Medford, which considering that I stopped several times, including half an hour for lunch and also to buy stuff for dinner tonight, is pretty good. The way I travel, it's really difficult for me to average much faster than that.)

I once again find myself in a one-bedroom suite at the Candlewood Suites Medford. I now know a little bit about what having a Platinum card in the Priority Club is worth, because this room (and the one I had going the other way, which was two doors down from where I am tonight) are one-bedroom suites, upgraded from the ordinary studio suite which I reserved and paid for. Thus, checking their rates, I see that my card has a notional value of $30-$40/night worth of upgrades here, subject to availability. Nice when the upgrades work. One of the hotels at Montreal next year is a Holiday Inn -- I wonder if I'll get upgraded there, too, if I book it.
