How do you travel to so many international cities every year?

If you are able to make Hyatt Globalist (easier with the new credit card), you can confirm suites at booking for the most part. You get 4 certificates per year for stays up to 7 nights. That’s a huge perk for personal travel. The SPG suite nights are pretty worthless

Either. Hyatt does have great properties in nearly all of those locations - PH Sydney beats SPG, Hyatt Churchill in London compared to SPG’s best, PH Shanghai was the highest hotel in the world, there’s a PH Shanghai, GH Hong Kong is great although location matters, and PH Paris compares to SPG Luxury Collection. Either way, can’t go wrong. I tend to prefer PH > Luxury Collection > St Regis

Thanks OW guess it does really come down to personal preference. Trying to see if its worth switching with the new merger.

Why not get both?

I try to stay local so don't have enough stays during the year to get top tier with both. My PTO is taken enough travelling for family business.. where i'd rather not spend a dime if that makes sense.

Thank you OW1 and fellow PwCers I think my decision is made!

Once you reach Globalist, every 10 additional nights gets you the option of another suite upgrade or 10,000 points.

Definitely Hyatt when you consider the benefits you get from Globalists status (mostly mentioned above), the percent of high end properties in their portfolio, that their growth is very controlled and most of their portfolio is owned and managed by Hyatt corporate rather than trusting a franchisee with it (at least for now but that may change soon in response to the new industry landscape), and the option to top off points with Chase ultimate rewards transfer.
