Already Marriott Titanium. If I have an additional 25 nights this year, should I aim for Ambassador or participate in Hyatt Globalist Fast Track Challenge?

Hyatt’s better

Stick with Marriott. We don’t need any more Globalists in Hyatt

Hopeful that next year the Amb ranks are lower and Marriott finally gets their act together. I can guarantee Marriott will have a hotel in whatever random city I’m in next whereas Hyatt’s a crapshoot. Also, when I want to redeem my points I feel like Marriott has more aspirational hotels that treat me like a rockstar. I would love to try out Hyatt but their footprint is always holding me back.

That's exactly what I'm struggling as well: better program v convenience

I stick with one. My thought is get as many points as you can so you get more free nights.

Don’t forget you need $20,000 in spend with the 100 nights for Ambassador. I am debating also whether I want to stay that long to get to $20,000

Not worth it

Do you have a link to the fast track challenge?

Honestly I have ambassador status now and it hasn't been super helpful. But I do agree that accumulating points is the way to go, and Marriott's network of hotels is much larger and thus more convenient. But I'm biased as I've only been Marriott/SPG so far

I didn’t branch out to other programs until I made lifetime status at Marriott. If you seek that and don’t have it yet, then you probably want to stay with Marriott. Also, Hyatt has far fewer properties than Marriott. While I like them, there have been many times my travel patterns haven’t matched their coverage, so ensure your travel actually matches where they are.
