With Hilton now. Should I switch to SPG or Marriot? Do it before or after the official merger?

They are equally crappy in my opinion, as a plat/diamond on both. Switch to Hyatt if you have the option.

I would switch now and do the status challenge. They’ll likely unveil a new status challenge post merger, and you likely won’t be disqualified from that moving forward (you can normally only do it once every 5 years)

I was a loyal Hilton person for close to a decade who switched to Marriott shortly after they acquired Starwood. I’d agree that if you’re staying in urban cores and comparing your classic Hilton to Marriott, there’s little difference. But in my opinion the total Marriott/SPG brand portfolio blows Hilton out of the water - not even close. As far as timing - if I were you and aiming for status, I would start earlier rather than later.

False M1, Marriott is MUCH better then Hilton.

Thanks all!
