Double points at an aloft or triple points at a four points by Sheraton? Assuming there are no better hotels to work with around here.

Just a heads up, OP. You only get triple points at an official Sheraton. 4 points by Sheraton still only gets double.

I've never stayed at a four points I wouldn't know what to compare it to. The aloft is no club med... I just don't know which is the worst best choice

Take the points now and cash in later

Triple points! Aloft's are trendy looking but have paper thin walls and shitty beds. Four points is probably on the same level as Aloft's but less trendy and have better beds. Aloft have nicer huge in products but that shouldn't be the deal breaker.

Hygiene products*

Four Points range more widely from location to location. So check that it's maintained well. Some can be nice, some not as much.

Thanks ACN 1 - if four points doesn't count for triple, I'll just stay at aloft.

D3 - the products at aloft are terrible. I can deal with the lotion... The all-in-one shampoo/conditioner kills me as a female. Not to mention it was terrible for my hair. Hate that I have to travel with product now - I've enjoyed being low maintenance on that front till now.

What city are you in OP?

San Antonio

There are nicer hotels downtown and/or by the river walk but I already drive the 15-20mins while my whole team stays 5 mins from the client site so I don't want to extend the commute anymore than I have to.

They don’t pay any social security or unemployment. After complaining they have said they’d agree to make us employees, but with a pay cut. What should I do?
