  1. @Gary continues to think long and wrong: “I still think Hilton needs some official benefits to distinguish Diamond from their Gold tier to make this meaningful.”

    That claim, which was always bogus, is now demonstrably bogus with the demise of SPG and HGP revealing HH Diamond at THE top elite status, and evidence that “official” benefits that were touted for years as “differentiating” or distinguishing features of SPG Plats and HGP Diamonds were simply made up.

    It’s time to get out of the business of calling “winners and losers” because you record on that front has been simply atrocious, as is now clear.

    G’day from Hyatt Regency Kyoto!
