I'm really torn with this - I love HHonors because of the location of properties i.e. if I have a family member getting married in BFE (not an airport code
) I am almost always guaranteed at least a HI to stay in. With *wood, you're limited to cities. My current work travel pattern is in mostly rural areas where a HI within 10 miles is a rarity, so *wood is non-existant. However, for using points, and the quality of properties, my overall experience is that *wood is the better. YMMV, but for me those are my experiences. I will definitely be making an active effort to requal for *wood plat this year in light of this, but will likely also make HHonors Diamond because of the travel pattern.
