    This merger is not going to benefit everyone. Top-end Starwood elites will be okay and will benefit from this merger but the middle-class in the Starwood program will be pushed down in the pecking order and find it harder and harder to gain access to the hotels they want to stay in.

    The loyalty programs operated by the two companies will remain separate entities until mid-2016. What happens thereafter, including which program would prevail when the two programs eventually merge, remains unknown.
