65 nights over at Marriott for what it's worth, but don't worry, I don't get any upgrades over there either. Will probably hit Ambassador in a few months, so then I can have someone to complain to when I don't get any upgrades, though I hear most people can't get in touch with their Ambassadors anyhow.

Thinking of having a run at Hyatt but maybe a bit late - perhaps next year.

Loyalty is not as exciting as it used to be.
As a Titanium, I've had upgrades at Marriott properties, but on a weirdly random basis.

Well great, I like weird! I'll look forward to that then.

Enjoying the new rollover perk very much, have done 80 nights with Marriott this year while not having to think too much about keeping Hilton nights up. Will not take too much to top up to 60 again next year.

Might not hit any milestone bonuses this year, but already have 1.1m Hilton points that Iím not sure how Iím going to use before they lose their value.....

Rollover nights from one year donít count to the next year. You have to attain 60 non-rollover nights in the current year before you start accruing.

From the t & c's concerning milestones:
My 60th night occurred yesterday and today the 40000 points (10000+30000 milestones)posted with the stay.

If you mean you have 60 rollover from last year, those have not been of any use to you as you have 68 nights this year. The 60 rollover nights will go away (can only rollover once) and you will have 8 rollover nights (so far) for next year.

For myself, I passed 60 nights in July and am currently sitting at 78. No rollover from 2018, hit exactly 60 nights last year. Just passed 120K base points this month, but only have 10 stays this year so am unlikely to hit the trifecta of requalifying with all 3 criteria.

But as they say, two out of three ain't bad.

Wish they'd rollover points (dollars). Just re-qualed for gold last week, but should not have trouble hitting diamond again as that works out to about 12 more nights for me (most of my stays are in the bay area or NYC)

From the t & c's concerning milestones:
As Jerry points out, it's a total of 40k points (I think!) for getting to 60 nights... and yes, those posted (as 30k and 10k).

One thing that regularly confuses me is that the activity on the website doesn't include running subtotals... so my account total may have 20k points "extra" according to my records at least, and I can't figure out in the activity where they came from.

Made it: 38 nights - 30 stays - 38.5k points

Normally my night count would be around 50, but 12 nights went to IHG this year, because of lack of Hilton presence / by far better redemption rates / huge promotion bonuses for low tier loyalty members.

Yeah - it's nice having the Aspire and being perma-Diamond. I'm at 37 nights this year as of now (I don't quite understand how Hilton split my 2018 nights into rollover nights...), and I won't hit 60. I'm Marriott Plat for this year and next, so I'm prioritizing using up my stash of points there at the expense of some Hilton redemptions.

$42,000 charged to my Hilton Amex so far this year so I'm renewed, but zero Hilton nights. Working on lifetime at the other chain - 49 nights there so far this year, 550 lifetime nights and 9 years of Plat status, one more to go, then I'm a free agent.

Qualified again on June 3rd. Earlier than in year’s past, but did it with 30 stays. Currently sitting at 54 nights and 37 stays, but have a lot of travel coming up including this week at 2 different hotels in Chicago.

If you book more than one room donít go by the app or website It wonít calculate correctly. It will give you stay credit for both rooms

Qualified a while back. 31 roll over nights helped. Travel has been a bit slow this year but still 71 nights (including rollover) with 29 stays. Probably another 30-40 nights spread across non-Hilton hotels.
