With SPG, Marriott hands down

like

Marriott, and this is coming from a guy halfway to lifetime Hilton Diamond and a perpetual 1M+ Hilton balance. Marriott's megabonuses are awesome, whereas Hilton's is middling.

Hyatt, then Marriott.

I got the American Express Hilton rewards CC and it is amazing. I get 7x the points plus I get upgraded almost every time I stay. Plus free food, snacks and drinks in the executive lounge. Hands down love my Hiltons.

Am on track to renew SPG Platinum status by mid-April. Should I keep staying with SPG through the rest of the year or focus on getting status at say Hyatt or Hilton?

FYI If your name doesn’t match exactly you can’t combine.

And when I called SPG they said the account maintenance wasn’t ready so to call back

Rate my redemption! Girlfriend (ATL) and I (DFW) are flying round trip Air France business class to Florence and Rome for 176,000 AMEX MR points = 220,000 Flying Blue miles.

Plus domestic airfare to rendezvous point (JFK) + taxes and fees on international travel: $1,600

Estimated hotel cost after AMEX credit: $841

Plus inter-italy train travel, COVID test, other expenditures.

Estimated retail cost of international tickets is $3,100 each way per person so that's ~64¢/MR point

Hi everyone! Can anyone tell me what you make as a typical banquet/events manager for salary or per hour? I’ve worked for Marriott/Bonvoy at the Ritz and for the Curio Collection with Hilton as a bartender/server/banquets captain. Now I’m working for a privately owned hotel and as a manager role in Banquets/Events. Because of pandemic times, what is everyone else making?

I don’t have much experience traveling in (international) business class. I recently upgraded a flight for 3 people but I am hesitant to pay again to reserve the seats. As far as I know they’ll let me choose the seats day before departure. Question — am I taking any risk by not assigning seats? I’m guessing since I already paid, they’ll hold the seats for us. Granted we may or may not be able to sit together, I just want to make sure they’ll hold 3 seats.
