The Battle of the Hotels: Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott and IHG
"Let's get into it. The Hotel Battle Hyatt Hilton Marriott. And here's our moderator. Julian Keel teepee emeritus director of credit cards and points and miles. Take it away Julian. Thank you Brian. I'm Jillian Keel. The director of credit cards and points and miles at the points guy. I am excited today. I have four hotel experts with me and we are going to be doing the battle of hotels. Let's start with Zach griff our travel endless. Hello Zack Hey Julian how's it going. Tell me what Cheney covering today I'll be covering my personal favorite. Hi Hi. It's a very big points in miles favorite also with us. Jt Enter our senior points and miles writer. Hello JD Jolyon. which brand do you talking about? I'll be defending is she. which is the hotel? Branwar spent the most nights this year and in the last two and a half years since going pneumatic a serious high HD HD fan. Yes all right sounds good. We've got cursor Ross and our points in miles reporter. which brand do you talking about today covering Hilton? which is my personal favorite brand? Lorenzo Hilton fans out there and then finally summer hall our director of travel here at Tgi Hud summer. How Juliet Hot Yes so I am going to be defending Mary bond boy. It is actually the program that I have had top tier status with the longest. Now hot minute since I had hiatt so I I have become a Marriott girl sort of yeah and a lot of Marriott in the news in the last year so let's start right there. What would you say for each? We'll start with you summer. What is the one thing? The one worst thing about Marriott's in one sentence from the best thing about Marriott is Saint Regis their high end properties. He's really are amazing. aspirational and something that Makes points worth it for me. So on the flip side I have had a lot of problems with the integration. They are now fully integrated program with Starwood Arwood but there was some serious serious rocky roads and lost points to get there So that was. That's been the worst part for me the last couple of years. Yeah there's been a lot of complaints about it's not just me. Yeah we'll get to that. Jt How about you. For I. H G best thing in worst thing about it. Yeah the reason why she is. The promotions are really great. The rewards program especially with credit cards. You get great night's for cheap. The worst they would definitely be a lack of hotel benefits like guaranteed late. Checkout even has a top tier. I don't get that or breakfast at all hotel brands and you're a top tier elite at a lot of hotel brands. And we'll get just a little bit Carita. As far as Hilton best thing and worse thing I would say Hilton is probably my favorite because it has the most accessible elite status so you get the most bang for your buck with your top tier status. I'd say probably the worst thing is how they tend to devalue their own points Frequently and without notice. Yeah if you're into the the point smiles but some people may just like Hiltons in general. That's true yeah. And Zach Hyatt like I said before points in miles favorite best and worst thing. Thanks for letting me take this one home because the clear clear win for high at here Hi. It's top tier. Elite status is easily the most rewarding of all of them They're fantastic about offering consistent benefits across all the different hotels whether it's confirmed sweet upgrades guaranteed late. checkouts breakfast everywhere under the sort of like exclusions that you get with some of the other chains and earning and burning points with height is super easy transferable currencies from trace and Yeah the only real issue is you can't find height everywhere Hi It's a portfolio is a little bit more limited than the other larger legacy chains but Hyatt. If it's in a place you're traveling going to. It's often the best hotel to choose but some people would argue that the key point of a hotel what you need the most is for them to be one there where you need it and that is somewhere somewhere highest serious For sure and hides doing its due diligence there. And they've had some recent acquisitions some other hotel chains so hopefully they will continue on that making a lot of party partnerships small luxury hotels taking over to Tallahassee so they have integrated more properties into their portfolio. But yes agreed. Are y'all crazy so I have heard High at yeah. They're Nice but you probably won't have one where you are and I've heard ice she. You don't really get anything being elite and I've heard Hilton. Yeah your points may be worth nothing tomorrow and yet here. y'All sit defending. These is the best loyalty programs. It's really quite entertaining. Maria does have the most hotel Marriott has close to seven thousand properties around the world. They do have legit elite status benefits. I love my free breakfasts. This is the selection. I make as a platinum when I check in and yeah they do have some properties have gone up in points but it typically isn't a surprise that just happens overnight so I think you'll lost already. We can wrap it up now. I think Mary also has its own HASHTAG bond void. It does so what is it. People who may not know what is point is is is the term that people use when they get unexpectedly screwed over by Marriott may or may not have also been yes I also was bond void So so that's no no. They might be now. How far do you have to fall when you're already starting with not much like with Marriott? You go in with high expectations tation so get knocked down a little bit. You still come out ahead. I've been bond void and yet I have also been saint. Regis it even unfair though at this point to say with that you are going in with high expectations when it comes to customer service I really I have had real problems where I had hours and hours on the phone. I've written stories about these on the points guy real frustration legit but I will say most of those are now in the rear view mirror. I'M NOT GONNA say it's not still happening to someone but a lot of the problems. uh-huh were centered around reservations made before the two programs merged and we're pretty much past the date or our past the date now. That's even possible so I'm not saying you can't that still have problems of Marriott but I can say that I'm not really having those anymore and I had some big ones. If I was still going through that day after day with Marriott I would have said Cya Nahra eh but I'm not and so instead I'm just living it up. You know at the Western snowmass and skiing out for thirty five thousand points tonight. What about that? Yeah yeah well the only issue though is right you have seven thousand hotels and you talk about you. Know you haven't been bond void nearly as frequently as maybe you are back in the day when the merger what's happening but how hotels how consistent are hotels in delivering your early benefits by upgrade. That might be a problem but in fairness I I wasn't getting the day of complimentary sweet grades frequently with high at either right but I also have four certificates that can use to confirm upgrades and each up to seven eight. Yeah exactly and we're talking about standard suites at top Tier Properties Park. Hyatt's we can go onto battle. Who has the most luxurious hotels? But I'm going to be staying in a suite and most likely as a platinum. You probably are. Well you're right however I travel with two kids so there's four of us in a room. A suite actually isn't useful anymore. It was there was a period of time where sweets were the ultimate and that is when I was a high at globalist or diamond at the time but now sweetshop one bed and then some light crummy sofa pullout so if you need a sweet you know maybe hired is a good thing to focus on for for that period of time in your life. But I'm at a time. Any beds in a room and so sweet upgrade for me is is useless most of the time. I'd rather have an awesome hotel exactly where I want it to beat beat and a few hundred more square feet most of the time speaking of upgrades one of the things about Hilton diamond status. That a lot of people complain about is that so you don't get confirmed upgrades. It's at the discretion of each individual property. Correct that's correct. I will say even though I don't have confirmed sweet upgrades. I have played in large large number of nights and home properties across the world and I've gotten upgraded on sweets on awards days on page days. Basically it's just the US. I think where you're shafted in terms of the sweet upgrades but everywhere else and the rest of the world you're getting in but you think that Hilton is at a slight disadvantage. Because of that because of these other chains that maybe do confirm Swede upgrades think it just depends on what your priorities are in the same in the same way that summer says I'd rather have a reliable quality hotel all across the world. And maybe I'll have a suite upgrade. Maybe I won't but I at least know that I'm going to have key benefits. It's available to me at a high quality level and on the flip side as far as earning top tier status. It's probably easiest with help. I'm just going to go ahead and just throughout throughout that Hilton aspire card because everyone else is just you guys have no game You know interest in terms of light barrier to entry to top Tier Diamond Status Status or top Jerry Lee Status Hilton. Has Everybody beat all you need to do his own one credit card right so with Hilton. You don't have to choose to focus all your stays on Hilton. You can just have a card and keep it in your pocket when you need. Ah The aspires a tremendous card But even if you just have the platinum or one of the less expensive Hilton Cards. That's all we had. We Have Hilton Gold status went to Bora Bora got free breakfast. All of us every single day which was like almost two hundred dollars in value and just with gold with gold status matched. Although I could've just done it for my platinum platinum card as well so I think Chris is right. There's definitely the lowest barrier to entry with Hilton But you don't actually have to make it your program if you don't want to with Marriott right you're gonNA have to make your program to get those elite benefits that you

reconnect with nature reconnect with your family and your loved ones lover Yes yes indeed yes so Celso today this week we're GONNA be talking about Bora Bora Bora Bora it's kind of special for us in in a couple of ways number one you know we've we've always kind of long to go there longed for the the tranquility of the lagoon and just you know the the absolute beautiful off the water and for yeah absolutely and for another we got married in Polynesia we got married in Hawaii and our twenty th anniversary was coming out and you thousand that pollination absolutely absolutely we want it to yes we do but and so we decided we're going to not only kind of vacation but also so do a wedding vow renewal with we'll get into in a little bit so let's dive into it let's start talking about Bora Bora and You know first and foremost getting to or or a Bora very similar to Morea pop take on the fly into to poppy poppy day and I think last time we talked about it there's a number of different options you can take options right Yep internationally puppet as a pretty well known destination so there's a lot of flight options from the West Coast United States we flew Charter flight out of Los Angeles but now there's a direct flight out of San Francisco Oakland originally was a charter flight out of Oakland but this time to bore a borough we flew to from La from La on Air Tahiti Air Tahiti Nui Nui is the International League of Air Tahiti and not will take you in between the islands inter island rate and that was prior to unite it decided to have a non non stop flight to San Francisco so we actually had the connection we'll get into that the weather was bad and that was a little bit nerve wracking trying to get out there it's interesting addressing yet so there are several flights options to get there so I the port of entry it's a puppet correct and then so you can get on the Air Tahiti To get to Bora Bora Bora Bora is roughly about one hundred and forty some odd miles northwest west puppet day bit of a trek on a boat so it's probably the best way to get there is via air and there are regular flights out of payday to Uber I think there's about three or four flights day that will get you out that way and so when we flew in we took a thing it was an overnight flight we arrived in Puppet Day think it was about mid morning and didn't have a very long layover until our flight to to bore bore was go wasn't bad in the interisland flights they're a little propeller planes which is Kinda cool so they slide a little different speed flight a little different altitude so you get a great view view when you take off from puppy of neighboring more rain a little bit of Tahiti as well the island says a really really great experience and we had a sunset view you coming home going back to pepita from Bora Bora right off those propeller plane and they're they're quite comfortable they're not noisy zero anything like that they don't rock around a lot so doing really really comfortable it's fun to get on him too because you've got to walk on the tarmac and you've got to climb out the back of the plane and it's it's kind kind of cool it was a lot of fun we were carrying a big old wedding dress with us as well which is an interesting experience in and of itself but everything everything he managed to deal that aside it was a really easy way to get into the islands and so accommodations in Bora Bora there's a number a number of different accommodations in there so many over water bungalows I was doing the research the other day because next year we are going back this time to riot Taylor and I'm surprised that not every you know island I thought each island offer variety of over Audubon Golos but I think we're Boris probably the island had which comes with the most hotels with over water better villas or bungalows exactly I think a lot of it is attributed to the lagoon Bora Bora is an extinct volcano or two volcanoes zero two peaks that are is slowly falling back into the ocean and as a result of that when we talked about this a little before the outer part of the volcano is is what creates the lagoon it's a natural reef if you will or barrier and then on the outside the ocean smacks into it on the inside it's Nice and call Gary Kahn Yeah there's a lot of coral and all sorts of our snorkeling absolutely so it's a huge lagoon so again very popular with folk that want to have that kind of experience and swim at Turquoise Blue Water and just it's amazing so tons of different accommodation options yes so couple that some we have stay some we haven't by there are like like Don you said there are tons of options right they're seeing reaches into continental aw Limb WanNa lend Meridian Limra Conrad Bora Bora Nui Sofitel. We've stayed Sofitel in more air in Tahiti and what else I o Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora is there so so there're lots and lots to choose from and their other bungalow style accommodations in hotels and Yeah Yeah Yep so a lot to choose from and depending on you know your your sense of adventure you can you know have these over water bungalows with little waiting pools diving boards or slides and stuff like that to come right off your peer or you can have the beachfront trump wants we can just walk right out of your bungalow right out to the beach and just kind of swim right into the water or they have the little shell as what we did at Meridian where we could have the the entire family together and that's something to take into consideration you have more than two kids like we do sometimes those over water bungalows don't quite accommodate accommodate five people I think the Max is three and then I think many makes you sign a waiver for children below twelve to be able to to stay over the water the water for safety reasons right and so it's a party of five for us so we couldn't what we could do if we were to split into two Oh units but we chose to do the ocean from villa but that turned out to be a really really good option so let's talk about this particular property we stayed at Meridian yes in Bora Bora and day Nice thing about for those of you who have three kids and want to go to Bora Bora we can all all stay in one unit a one bedroom I think it's the sweet category because there's also a one bedroom bungalow but that does allow five people but I think it's the sweet there was a certain just the term that they use it oh above and there's a two bedroom ocean from villa in this case we state and it comes with got up infinity pool a facing the ocean right right in the middle of the property and then you have two units all right toto privacy so it's perfect for vow renewal even party parties and you won't privacy there's.

"He just bought like before it was crazy. We left to Bora Bora. The same the day after the fight, but we went Chicago to Vegas Vegas to Bora on Sunday after the fight. And the crazy thing with that is I actually had a trip planned when I was going to find New Zealand when I tore my l. so I was going to go New Zealand to bora-bora and we actually had a credit for that fight for a year, and it was exactly a year when we took off like Nell. So that's all you had to leave that very next day. So, yeah, half of the power couple known as bene- leaving. Yes, yeah. Hosted about a month ago gave us. Yeah, yeah. So that was a good place and that helped you know a lot like put things in perspective where the end of the day, like that's your life. Like if I went back and and right in the gym and we talked about what you should do this, you do this, you do that like, you know, it's like, all right. Well, I'm gonna get there and like, but like the constant like real life part of it is like what's going to be there all the time and putting all that in perspective after and just being like, you know what? Like I'm Bora Bora with my wife and you know, it would have been better if I won, but it was just, it just puts things in perspective. You just go home on regular day, you know, and, and you're dealing with that rather than just like, for instance, maybe living in a house with fighters were like they're doing this and they're fighting and they're, you know, like it's, it's, it's a, I think that's what really matters. So having that around town. So the question all over again is is like the important part. Everyone else is just, you know, they put an input in that part of. Live like the fights, but the real bigger part of life just waking up every day and having a good life I think is helps you deal with the loss more than anything. All right.

"Hm and i i admit i don't know anything about turkey's military so one one question i have is i mean is turkey a a lot of countries are no they have one particularly dominant force right so in china forever was the ground forces obviously in the uk it was the royal navy is turkey an army centric country or is a country where the air forces particularly of its armaments in the largest component yo you know it's certainly yet the arctic is in the army to set will be the airforce than the third will be the navy in terms of ranking of the services in terms of importance are hillary has a special some residents yet because of its your legacy within the turkish armed forces in so that's why i presume it will be through the artillery through the arming app but these things have actually been deployed yet right this is one of the very first tests that we've seen or is it the first test i think it's the second task attended the first or the second you know uh it is a relatively new system anz again i think that that you i i think that it is because israel too lenient system but again as instructive because if if if we we go by the lineage of this yup they clearly didn't buy it off the shelf there was clearly some sort of efforts to involve transfer here so that you set up a turkish line and it is in through that.
