Marriott seems to have many more properties (just my observation not an

empirical thing) with all of the Starwood properties. As noted below the full service end of Marriott is great, with Westin, JW, Renaissance, Autograph, W, etc. I agree with Chef that for the low end I like a Hampton Inn or a Hilton Garden Inn more than a Springhill Suites. I have no issues with Fairfield Inn and Courtyards either, just not quite as nice in general. I’ve liked Alofts in Austin, Brooklyn, and Asheville as lower budget Marriott offerings. I’m lifetime platinum elite with Marriott and maintain Gold with Hilton through a credit card. I almost always opt for Marriott because there are typically more of them and the perks I get from my higher status there. (Just looked at my Bonvoy app and I’ve spent more than two years of my life sleeping under the roof of a Marriott, wow!)

No idea how they compare with points, but I did redeem Hilton points for the Diplomat when we were in the Orange Bowl in 2019 and got a nice corner suite.
