Is it better to have Marriott ambassador or Marriott tplat + Hyatt globalist

I’ve been getting very annoyed with Marriotts recently and I’m considering booking Hyatt whenever possible next year instead. Among other things, I’ve found it incredibly difficult to use Marriott suite nights and free night certificates and the points are useless.

Rarely useful? I used two 35k certs to book a couple of nights in an overwater suite at the Le Meridian in the Maldives and then an additional 5 nights for like 130k points. Heck I booked another 5 nights at the best Marriott hotel in Big Sky, MT for skiing for the same 130k points. The value is there, you just gotta find it. That said, both Marriott and Hyatt are now on a points system that is directly related to hotel prices so it makes sense why you can’t use small amounts of points for expensive rooms. I’m happy I’m with Hyatt now, but Marriott does win in some cases.

Agree. Going beyond titanium isn’t really valuable at Marriott.

I have been ambassador for 6 years and have watched it go downhill. I’ve tasted Hyatt Globalist off and on over time and that’s what I’m going back to. Especially since having lifetime platinum I’m not worried about that side.

I’ve been Ambassador since 2013… it’s never been that great. It’s become nominally better under Marriott since it’s now it’s own status level but benefits are shaky at best. The only benefit is that the platinum/titanium customer service is absolutely terrible. The Ambassador is much better - really what the plat+ should be. Also, if you want to throw weight around at the hotel for upgrades, it’s easier if you’re ambassador. I’ll be losing my status after next year. Not that sad about it. I’ve pivoted my stays and credit card to Hyatt. I don’t love the Hyatt portfolio compared to Marriott but Marriott will be completely gutted in 2023 with dynamic award pricing.

Had same experience as you OP. One year of explorist and I never looked back. Although given my staffing locations I actually have an ambassador and am Globalist this year.

Hyatt Globalist is amazing!
