Should I be loyal to a single hotel chain?

Which is best?

I shoot for 2. It's relatively easy to maintain SPG platinum and Marriott gold. If the loyalty systems are combined I'll add Hyatt diamond.

I was also able to parlay my SPG platinum status into top-tier Hilton and Hyatt status by just calling them and asking. There was a massive scramble at the end of last year to scoop up disgruntled SPG people after they were bought out.

You want as many hotel chains as possible while maintaining top status. This gives you access to a wider footprint while maintaining the earning benefits and perks of top tier. The ability to shift spend to particularly rewarding promotions (e.g., one chain has triple points while the other has something lame) is also nice.

If you travel year round, shoot for 2. I decide on my hotel loyalty annually based on where I have upcoming personal travel and what hotels are around those areas. No use in having points with Hotel chain A if you are spending time in an area that only have Hotel Chain B

Southwest is literally the only airline that knows how to board a plane properly. The other airlines have no incentive to change though. So frustrating watch United etc. board a plane

With travel getting nearer, I’m trying to find some better chinos/client-acceptable pants. I’m on the bigger side (39-40 waist) with thick thighs to match from years of working out. Brands like Lululemon don’t fit well, even the 40W Warpstreme. Are there any similar tech pant brands that might work?

I'm desperately craving to get on an airplane and check into a Marriott indistinguishable from the million I have stayed in before and snack on tiny food in a lounge with average wine and then go have dinner by myself in a nice restaurant, then go back to my room & put the TV on in the background as I sit on the bed and spend way too long on a PowerPoint slide no one is really going to look at, safe in the knowledge that not only is all of it paid for, I'm also actually getting paid to do this.
