Hey…my last 4 nights in beautiful Tulsa, Oklahoma did improve my life in at least one way…. I achieved the necessary number of nights to re-obtain Hilton Gold. It’s not the hugest deal on earth, but hey…it beats being Silver….or at worst… dirt status!

Starwood is my preferred hotel chain, but let’s face it, there are far fewer Starwood Hotels than there are Hilton affiliated properties. And having Gold status has already caused me to ensure that I direct my next three hotel stays to a Hilton property.

Next up: Tulsa (again) and I’ll be staying at the Doubletree Warren Place. I hear it’s a pretty good hotel. I’ll be sure and post a report.
