Booking a room at Hiltons using points is so expensive. I am switching back to Marriott world.

Go for Hyatt! Most valuable points (even accounting for lower earn rates from stays and credit card spend) and the best treatment both above property (calling Hyatt, etc) and at properties. Plus full breakfast for elites.

Hyatt would be the best if their footprint were larger. It’s like the old SPG but even smaller

Point for point, a Marriott point is worth more. You should be earning Hilton points a bit faster though, so it more or less evens out. I keep status at both, and I just go with whoever has the better promotion going on.

Welcome home!

Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant? Now they are saying "No vaccine is 100% effective so this is to be expected"? As if we're just suppose to shrug our shoulders after they have been pressuring everyone to get the vaccine? I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...
