Can’t really speak to Hilton but I’m Lifetime Titanium Elite with Marriott


It’s home away from home. Their low end properties are fine for me but full service Marriotts members give members access to their concierge lounge, which offers a free (usually hot) breakfast, meeting space, non-alcoholic drinks throughout the day, and free Hors d'oeuvres, and alcoholic drinks (for a fee). They provide a number of other common perks but a really nice one is 4pm checkouts. They have nice resorts and other properties in travel destinations and you can usually find a decent room using points

IIRC they used to have a “Taste of ______” program, and the blank was the next level of status (silver, Gold, etc). It may be worth a call to them and explaining that you’re consider making the switch and would like to see if they can (at least on a trial basis) offer you a status comparable to the level you have with Hilton. Then you can experience the perks first hand and make a better informed longer-term decision.
