Marriott or Hilton loyalty program?

I was a Hilton Human for many years, and thankfully still keep it up to maintain Diamond status. The exec lounge service/access I used to get in the EU was amazing—much better than the states. However, I am a Marriott Mammal now and much enjoy status with this chain.

I’m a Marriott titanium, and after some disappointing experiences, tried Hilton and got Diamond. Sad to say… Marriott is better, even though it’s not great. I pretty regularly get room upgrades with Marriott; nothing crazy, but one step up is nice. Never had an upgrade with Hilton, even when I asked.

Wow good to know. I almost wanted to switch to Hilton

I left SPG when they merged with Marriott. Both Hilton and Hyatt status matched me and I tried both for a year. Hilton’s are not fun experiences. Their portfolio felt very tired and I never received upgrades. Hyatt has been amazing. They have given me some of the absolutely craziest upgrades I’ve ever seen and just seem to try much harder than the other chains. Their points also go pretty far, especially when traveling internationally. There aren’t as many hotels, but I have really liked the move.

How often do you travel? If I was to stay at a Hyatt property around 3-6 times a year, would that be sufficient to build any sort of meaningful status?

Marriott is getting so big and it doesn’t care about the loyalists anymore. They don’t have as many promotions as before and the CEO implied cutting benefits

Under impressed with many Hilton properties. Hilton has marginally better redemption options in Las Vegas.

Both pretty bad these days. Classic answer was SPG/Bonvoy but they’ve been reducing the benefits constantly where Hilton or Hyatt might be a better option these days.

Both

Hyatt

Hyatt Globalist FTW

Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
