In my opinion: Not yet. Why? Because it won't be worthy for you unless: 1. You're already a lifetime platinum member or you don't care about your membership status. 2. The two programs have already completely merged and Starwood nights are considered the same as Marriott nights. 3. You have no choice (For example: There's no Marriott hotel… Show more

In making a single booking needed for an upcoming flight change on a personal day (thanks United), I looked for available hotels near DCA. From there it became a nightmare of CS… Show more
