    Would you use 35,000 Marriott Reward points for a one night stay where the cost would be $159 (before taxes)? Seems high to me.

  2. MidSouthSkier

    Welcome [USER=5018]@milliesimitz[/USER] – I agree that’s high. I’d pay with cash unless you just want to burn Marriott points.

    +1 to Mid-South advice. Save your points in that situation

  4. David W

    Agreed – save your points. There are some great hotels that cost more but are only 35k points per night. I recently stayed at the Ritz Carlton Guangzhou where the nightly rate was ~$300 but only cost 35k points.

    $159/35,000= 0.4 cents ($0.004). I think Lucky values Marriott pts at 0.8 cents, or double your potential redemption rate in this case. Use cash.
