What is a good replacement for the Macquarie Hilton Honors card?

As I’d suspected for a while, Macquarie has officially canned their Macquarie Hilton Honors Platinum Card.
I enjoyed this card for its perks and the side earning of hotel points.
Is there anything out there that is similar? I.e. directly linked to a hotel rewards program?

Unfortunately, Australia doesn’t have any Hotel branded credit card. Closest thing is an AMEX or the Macquarie card and other bank rewards programs which allow you to transfer to Hilton Honors and or Marriott.

I too will sorely miss the card. Hopefully some other hotel pt earning cards would be available soon in Australia.
