Head-to-Head: Marriott Bonvoy Titanium vs. World of Hyatt Globalist

Head-to-Head: Marriott Bonvoy Titanium vs. World of Hyatt Globalist

In this edition of Head-to-Head, we’ll compare two of the best hotel elite status tiers out there: Marriott Bonvoy Titanium and World of Hyatt Globalist.

Marriott Bonvoy and World of Hyatt are two major players in the worldwide hotel landscape, with both programs providing members with the opportunity to earn elite status.

While Globalist is the highest elite status you can earn through the World of Hyatt program, Titanium is the second-highest status available with Marriott Bonvoy, behind the program’s Ambassador Elite status.

We’re pinning these two specific statuses against each other because of their strong similarities, and because acquiring Marriott Bonvoy’s highest status of Ambassador Elite is tied to a hefty spending requirement.

However, it’s actually easier to earn qualifying nights with Marriott Bonvoy than with World of Hyatt, since the Marriott program provides a generous amount of qualifying nights through its co-branded credit cards in Canada and the United States.

For example, by simply holding the Canadian Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card or the Marriott Bonvoy Business American Express Card, you’ll jumpstart each year with 15 elite qualifying nights.

In the US, most co-branded Bonvoy cards also come with 15 qualifying nights each year, with the exception of the American Express US Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant Card, which comes with 25 qualifying nights each year for just being a cardholder.
