For the last several years, my job has required me to travel overnight a minimum of 2 to 3 nights a week. About a month ago, I took a new position and amped up the travel. I did go for about six months with little travel but since I am back at it, I seem to never be upgraded, never greeted like a Platinum member, and have frequently become the QC for maintenance and housekeeping. Frankly, its exhausting. I joined Hilton's points program this morning and even though I haven't booked a stay yet, I understand they have a "matching" program where they will respect the status I currently have.
If I'm just going to be like any other guest, I might as well have status at more than one hotel chain. Frankly, I am just not feeling the respect I should considering how much time I've spent in Marriott properties. Anyone else feeling this way?
