The streak's at eight and counting...

A geographically-accurate Switch? configuration, from "west to east":
  1. Trip to Seattle, WA (6n, Hyatt at Olive 8, daily breakfast; AL)
  2. Trip to Savannah, GA (6n, The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa, daily breakfast; MO)

The Distance Rule, if it applied, would suggest switching here. But does it apply?
