I`m kinda new to both of these hotel chains, and still i`m a bit confused, as I would believe it would be nice benefit if stays/nights in both chains would count towards elite status in another, because otherwise for me it makes less sense to stay in SPG if I`m  making most of my nights towards getting  status in Marriott reward programm, as I will have same access in SPG anyway, and instead of staying in SPG property in areas where Marriott is not present I would go with Hilton or other chain. As that would get me some status with them of course the benefit of using SPG hotel would be existing status privileges but as for starters who only try to reach that, this advantage would be absent. Any plans on such approach ?
