Another vote for HHonors. Great for upgrades and complimentary bfast, especially in the US when the additional bfast is quite pricey. I wish we got to renew the Hilton Gold each yr We retain Velocity GoldYes, go the Hilton. I read the recommendation on Point Hacks and I’m glad I did. The breakfasts are a bit hit and miss in Australia and you only get a continental breakfast (the Curio in Sydney is particularly disappointing), but in Asia it’s terrific. I stayed at the Millenium Hilton in Bangkok a month back and got access to the full buffet extravaganza that caters for tastes around the world. Plus unlike Australia, the on-demand espresso coffee was included. It’s definitely worth signing up to.
