Yesterday’s airline elite status check-in post was a really interesting read, so I figured I’d start another on hotel status. I am currently working on requalifying for Hyatt Diamond, Starwood Platinum and Priority Club Platinum/Intercontinental Royal Ambassador and I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew. I have a lot of travel coming up, but for the first half of the year I didn’t have many stays because I was working on a team that did not require extensive travel (which was a huge change for me).
Now that I’m doing TPG full-time, I can work from anywhere, so I plan to do a ton of travel this fall and I’ve heard I’ll be getting Hyatt Diamond for participating in the Star Mega Do 3 (ps: stay tuned for a special giveaway coming soon ;-) ). That would be nice to get my Hyatt qualification out of the way so I can re-up my Starwood and IHG.
However, am I missing the boat with not focusing on the others like Hilton or Marriott? Please share your thoughts below on what you find valuable in your hotel elite status. In traditional fashion, I’ll start! Also, expect an updated post with hotel status/challenge match information to come. I’m currently working with limited wi-fi here in Mauritius.
