I made an effort to get to Diamond level last year and will not be making that effort this year. I had a handful of international stays this year and I think Diamond paid off in that respect. Well, of the 5 stays abroad, I had one upgrade at the Curio Hamburg to a nice large room. I guess that isn't really paying off. To me, the lounge access really only matters internationally.

I've already secured Gold and that is where I will stay. Especially in a domestic property, the breakfast at a Homewood, even a Hampton, is better than what a Diamond gets at a full Hilton property. That is the real joke. I book away from Hilton proper in the US.
