Not traveling anymore for work but do have some personal trips coming up and staying at Marriotts. I’ve told work I refuse to travel but does it make sense to get the chase Marriott bonvoy bold ($0 annual) fee card? The 15 nights of ‘credit’ to help keep status seems nice and 30k of points seems free

Going to to Maldives for honeymoon ! Using my Marriott points to book as I’m an ambassador level. Which hotel would you recommend: st Regis , ritz Carlton , JW , or W ? I’m leaning towards the W because it has the best perks for ambassadors. Downside it is the oldest . Ritz and St Regis often feel too snobby and I never get the ambassador treatment at those hotel chains . He looked promising and it’s really new.

I have 5 credit cards. I signed up for new during the pandemic to take advantage of massive signup bonuses and may have a few free vacations in the near future as a result. Amex Gold is currently offering a 60k point bonus. Worth signing up? Should I cancel one of the cards I used just for the bonus? I feel like the only cards I use now are my Chase Sapphire and Hilton Amex. Will canceling my oldest card destroy my credit history? I had it for 6mo before signing up for a new card. 2yrs of hist

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?

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?
