I haven't completely made a switch but I do embrace more flexibility in NOT booking Marriott for every trip now. Marriott has made too many negative changes for me to remain blindly loyal. That said, I do have 4 reservations with them for the next year. So apparently it's a sloooow change, lol.Anyone on here made the switch from Marriott to Hilton? I travel quite a bit for work, maybe 40-50 nights a year. I used to make up the other 25-35 nights needed for what is now Titanium with Marriott through having 2-3 of their co-branded cards, as you'd get 15 elite nights per card. Since they took that away last year, it looks like I'm going to be short this year. I'm lifetime Platinum, and they've also taken away the ability to get lifetime Titanium, so there's nothing else for me to do there. I guess I'm thinking this might be a good time to make the switch. I have Hilton Gold through the Amex biz. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
As an aside, I know a lot of you are fans of Hyatt, and I am interested in that but the place I travel to most for work doesn't have one, so it wouldn't do me much good right now.
If you're lifetime Platinum, then I think becoming more of a free agent allows you great flexibility. Have you considered the Amex Aspire for Diamond status?
