Who here is going to stick with SPG/M after the full merger completes next year? And if you're bailing, where are you going and why?

I have not gone into the details but I would say that by becoming a stronger player they can make their points/awards structure less attractive

But seriously, I will stay with them. Hiltons are so damn boring. Aren't enough hyatts either. (Aka the next merger)

I would consider Hyatt. They have the best top status customer service.

Four seasons only for me. Because EY values my life on the road and likes to treat me right.

I've been Marriott platinum for a while, I'm sticking around

I'm almost Marriott gold for life. Plan to stick around.

And also Hyatt alwz has a challenge going on... For instance this quarter, 25 nights - 75,000 points... But international hotel options are pretty limited!

I would love to be Hyatt but the small towns I go to don't allow that

I'm doing dual brands. Given how much we travel it's not hard to hit Diamond on Hyatt and Platinum 100 on SPG.

I’m unable to focus on work and I keep dropping the ball on some projects. I hate to put this on my personal life but I’ve experienced three family deaths (including a parent) and a death of a good friend all within the last five months. I feel like I should have taken significant time off but I think now it’s too late with end of the year financials etc. Does anyone have any tips on how to bounce back up?
