Best footprint: Marriott/SPG and Hilton Best redemption: Marriott/SPG and Hyatt Depends which tradeoff is more important: footprint or return

like

Hilton’s nice if you can get past the redemption values. I’d definitely look to go Hyatt if your projects are in cities they are in

like

Same here specially now that the gold status is so diluted. Hilton May be a good option

Hilton

Really not much of a choice - Hilton for locations. I prefer Hyatt but just not in the places i need to be

Prefer Hyatt. Best for redemptions
