    Lucky,

    Hope you are enjoying the trip with your mom! I have a question regarding hotel rewards. My "loyalty" is currently with Marriott, I stay at Marriott properties about 20-25 nights a year and I get Marriott Gold as I'm UA Plat. However, I'm considering switching to SPG properties. Do you think it's worth the switch? I know you value SPG points more than twice that of Marriott rewards(if i recall correctly), but switching to SPG properties would mean I will have no status.

    I've stayed at Marriott properties for 5 nights this year already...not sure if it's worth sticking with it. I'm looking to use my hotel rewards at properties around southeast asia(mainly HKG), but as I was looking at redemption with Marriott properties...I don't have many options.

    Apologies for the long email and thanks for your time. Safe Travels

    @ Erik -- To be honest if you're Marriott Gold I'd say they're a pretty good option. Marriott does have properties almost everywhere, so is tough to beat in terms of their global footprint. I might just stick with them in your shoes, as their mid-tier status is incredibly valuable.
