My wife and I are touring England. We are staying at both Marriott and Hilton properties. I am a Platinum Marriott Elite member, and my wife is a Gold Hilton Hhonors member. This will be a good comparison of the two programs. Our first stop was at the Swindon Marriott, followed by the Hilton in Tewkesbury. The Hilton Tewkesbury welcomed us with an upgraded room. One note, there is no air conditioning in the rooms. Though this wasn't a problem for our stay, the hot weather lately might prove to get a bit warm in the rooms if it continues. The room was nicely furnished. The bed wasn't as comfortable as the Marriott's; however, the welcome for the Gold Hhonors was much better than for the Marriott Platinum. We had a basket with chocolates, two waters, apples, and vouchers for two drinks delivered each day to our room. The Marriott did none of this for us...so much for Platinum Elite! The workout facilities were adequate at the hotel. I'd give that a toss up between the Marriott and Hilton. The breakfast was very sumptuous and the service superb. I'd definitely give the nod to Hilton on this matter. The bathroom was definitely better at the Hilton. It was larger and more up to date. The bathroom amenities were better at the Hilton as well. All in all, I'd give this Hilton a thumbs up over the Marriott. Next stop will be the Marriott Chepstow, Wales. Hilton, you did a nice job here...Hilton has the edge so far!
