I'm from SPG side and I do find Bonvoy was somewhat devaluation compare to SPG.
Biggest issue would be what Supatight80 said .... Marriott corporate culture is more siding with property owners.

The increase is footprint might be very valuable for some, but I believe there are others who prefer SPG corporate culture than better footprint offered by Marriott.

And also SPG , by numbers, have easier path for elite membership.
Multiple room credit, stay count, etc.

As for me, while I do find Bonvoy is inferior than old SPG, but their offering currently still acceptable for my purpose hence I still continuing with Bonvoy.

However, if asked if I prefer SPG or Bonvoy, then I wouldn't hesitate to say I prefer SPG
