This year stopped after stay number 30, a number of brand new nearby IHG properties and the usual IHG promotions kept me away from Hilton.

Countries stayed in with Hilton chain this year: 4

Stays per Brand:
DT: 5
Hampton Inn & Suites: 2
Hilton: 32
Conrad: 1

New Hilton chain stays (to me): 4, Vilamoura (Portugal), Santiago (Chile), St. George (UK), Chester (UK),
New Country stays in Hilton chain (to me): 1 (Chile)

Still the chain I stay most with, mostly due to work stays, roughly the same as previous years for stays and nights. Roughly a 1/3 of my total nights away this year (30 with Accor chain, 6 with Hyatt and the rest not worth listing separately or independents.)

Hope to try some new countries, hotels and brands in 2019.

Safe travels everyone.
