I recently became an Hhonors gold, after being a starwood gold/plat for the last 5 years. So, I took it for a test run this past month and have had 3 stays... I must say that the HHonors Gold has treated me extremely well. In 2/3 stays Ive been upgraded to a suite after booking a standard room. In all 3 Ive been treated really well, got free wifi and continental breakfast. Something lacking at all of my SPG stays while being a gold... Not to mention, 2/3 suite upgrades would even be a good percentage for being an SPG Plat, would it not? The only thing though is that I find the SPG points so much easier to accrue and use (I own a business and HHonors doesnt have a biz card), and the value for them is usually significantly better than the 3/1 ratio I would be getting for spend on their respective cards anyways. But with these nice perks, wondering if I should just switch my loyalty to Hilton for all my paid stays anyways? For someone who doesnt spend more than 20 nights a year in a hotel, what do you guys think? Am I missing something about what could make the SPG program that much better?
