Valuable Starwood/Marriott Map from Trillo 88 @ Flyertalk

The Starwood Flyertalk forum provides some excellent insights into the merger and its various value opportunities. Here's a map one of the posters so thoughtfully built.  From chatting with several of my Starwood buddies, it appears (to me, YMMV) that the Starwood high elites get better recognition than the Marriott elites do (more real upgrades, less begging and headaches) and that the Marriott properties are priced more attractively (which is fine by me, that's why I don't play at the Ritz and love me some JW and Rens, more beer money).  Enjoy, and a big thank you to trillo88 (a thoughtful, hard working tech wizard).  This has proven helpful to me in cities like Chicago and Boston where it's hard to find a great Marriott deal (due to their high occupancy - except in zero or less temperatures ).

 

If for whatever reason you can't get through (most likely because I somehow messed it up) don't bug me, I'm a step behind the Amish when it comes to technology. Go to Flyertalk Starwood and get it directly from the source (lots of good info there - instead of counting your badges, read this instead ).

    Now that's some "good stuff Maynard"!!!  I'm going to save that to my favorites as it will certainly be of use when comparing the two.

     

    erc since I cannot remember my Flyertalk password nor username please let trillo88 know how much it is appreciated.  Who knows, maybe tomorrow a new day I'll figure out how to get back on to Flyertalk!

    I Think we were told at tipple that it appears Starwood treated   their top levels better than Marriott did but that marriott treated the less than 50 nights better

      Ah yes! I remember that being said too.  I believe it.  Being so top heavy was not good for them.  I like how Marriott treats everyone pretty well.  It is certainly what kept me coming back to stay at Marriotts.
