So I will hit ambassador with “Bonvoy” tomorrow night. Considering it’s only May, should I switch to IHG properties and go for Intercontinental Ambassador as well? Is there any benefit for loyalty?

You've spent 100/134 nights this year in a Marriott already?

Same

I would choose Hyatt over IHG1

You can get Platinum IHG status with a $49 annual fee credit card. Go for Hilton or Hyatt. Another option is to just keep banking the Marriott points and plan a big vacation to blow them all. You get 5th night free on award stays.

IHG status is doo doo. I fast tracked to IHG spire elite last year once I hit Marriott ambassador too, but don’t expect anything like the benefits you would get with Marriott - even at Spire elite you don’t get free breakfast, lounge access, late check out is not guaranteed, etc etc... not to mention IHG points are pretty much worthless for redeeming

That’s what I’m looking for

I’m waiting until the double points promo is over then switching to Hyatt

Can I ask what hotel you are staying at that you have hit spend and nights already?

... $200 a night in any large city is nothing. I spent the last 3 months in Boston where a basic Marriott in Cambridge was $300+ a night on the reg.

Once you have status, you warm more points on your stays. So it pays to be loyal when you cash out those rewards.

Oh yes, warm points. That's what I want.
