I am about 100k points short of a 5 night stay at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills (4 nights with points, 5th night is free) I also have ~80K Chase points I want to drop on a really nice hotel for a night in Miami. Would it make sense to convert my Chase points to Virgin Atlantic then Virgin Atlantic to Hilton at a 1:1.5 ratio? Or are Chase points really that valuable and I should keep accumulating them?

Hi Fam! I’m on the East Coast and looking for a tropical vacation spot for 5-6 days. Looking for recs!

Bonvoy experts: trying to up our odds of the best suite night award. We booked a resort for a week with points. Room has a partial ocean view and the next level up is a full ocean view. The suite night awards options are said full ocean view, or a super fancy suite. My question is, as ambassador status, shouldn’t we get that next-level upgrade to the full ocean view automatically on check in if available? So is the play to only request the super nice suite? What would be your strategy or tips?

How many points? Caribbean Marriott Cat 3 property, 5 nights. They have an issue with the boiler so no hot water and shower stops in between. Ice cold showers for 4 days in a row 🥶. Hotel phones don’t work because network is down and only local channels work on tv. Last night they had a huge leak in the lobby. They kept knocking stuff all night to fix it and then left a large floor fan running. I understand it’s tough reopening so don’t want to push, plus they upgraded our room at check in.
