I figure the differences between Bonvoy at mid-tier and upper tier are eroding pretty quickly so it’s probably worth it to switch over to Hyatt for major cities and deal with something like a springhill suites for smaller cities (where the elite tier wouldn’t even matter for Bonvoy really)

Burned pretty much every point we had for a week at the St. Regis Maldives in a Sunset Overwater Villa. Now I'm even happier we did

Re: Maldives. Folks split resorts as well. So 5 days at the Ritz and 5 days at St. Regis.
