I should've clarified about cash & points. Hyatt allows you to do cash & points on a single night stay of 2,500 points + $50 cash for a level 1, or 4,000 points and $55 cash for a level 2, etc. Marriott requires two nights or more to do cash & points. I love the idea of being able to do a hotel for $50 plus 2,500 points the night before I fly out of IAD. Hyatt and Marriott both have the same bonus categories so that is null. Also, for a low level hotel (say, around an airport which I use frequently) is less points on Hyatt vs Marriott. 5,000 Hyatt vs 7,500 Marriott. As you can see, earning a free night is faster on Hyatt than Marriott. If Hyatt had the same foot print as Marriott I wouldn't have even given Marriott a consideration. I've stayed with both brands and overall I think Hyatt is nicer than Marriott. But, gotta do what I gotta do since I have to travel and Hyatt won't be in as many spots as Marriott. Blah.
