Marriott is only good for number of chains. Hyatt is where it’s at.

I do Marriott. Ambassador Service is basically useless. However, if you pick one and stick with it, perks are worth it over the years.

Marriott. Status is harder to get with Marriott, which is a good thing because it makes the benefits better and more exclusive. With Hilton, anyone can get diamond just by having a credit card and so when everyone can get upgraded, no one gets upgraded

Hilton

Hilton guy here, used to be Marriott guy and liked that better.

Which is better for international travel? Are there more Marriott, Hilton, or Hyatt properties? Or none of the above?

I like Hyatt!

Marriott, especially since merger with SPG. Can find a Sheraton in the most remote areas.

Hilton and Marriott, then I decide between them depending on location and property

+1 on hyatt - though my practice generally brings me only to major metros. Definitely the highest suite upgrade rate of the big chains - I used to get one roughly 3/4 trips. Top notch, and I like their app better than the other chains as well.

Personally I’d say I Hyatt if it’s a good option for you. Much smaller footprint though, so it depends where you get staffed. Otherwise, I do both Marriott and Hilton. Easy enough to maintain both. It’s been a while since I looked up either of their challenges though, so double check what offers are actually out there now: I’d start at Marriott and status match over to Hilton when you get titanium. You can maintain status at Hilton with 30 stays if you’re willing to hotel hop each night. Then you can just stay at wherever has the best promotion going on.

Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
