Well it sounds like the Chase Marriott might actually be a better card after some research. I fear not being approved for either though.
The issue here isn't with your overall credit profile, since Chase has already given you 2 cards. It's just that lenders often don't want to give too many new accounts to someone in such a short amount of time.
If you use the cards that you have regularly and always PIF, you have a good chance to get a 3rd Chase card in another 3-6 months. Internal scoring and usage plays an important role in how Chase evaluates existing cardholders who apply for additional credit.
I actually think the Hyatt card is the overall better product, but if you're heavily invested in Marriott (as I am currently) or if Marriott fits your travel patterns better, then you should go with that instead.
