How you get those?

I didn't choose and got defaulted to suite night awards 😔

The W New Orleans - French Quarter could be a great look for those certificates. I spent four months staying there about 10 years ago when I was at McK and it was a really good spot that couldn’t have been any better located for visiting NOLA. If you’re open to going to Puerto Rico, the St Regis there could be a GREAT spot for using those free nights. I stayed there on SPG points a few years ago and it was one of the top three or four hotel experiences that I’ve ever had. The Westin Copley Place in Boston could be a good place to use the free nights if you ever want to visit that city. Finally, the W Lakeshore in Chicago would be a really good spot to use the free nights of you travel during the summer. It is located across Lake Shore Drive from Navy Pier and, during the summer, there’s a weekly Saturday night fireworks show from Navy Pier

D’oh!!! Totally missed the 35K point part of the comment. That definitely kills the St Regis option in PR. The W Lakeshore, W NOLA French Quarter, and Westin Copley Place May still be options though. I haven’t looked up the point redemption values on those I ages since before Marriott killed SPG last August

You need bigger dreams. You really can think of somewhere to go for 3 nights?

35K also good enough for Westin and JW at Cancun

Gorgeous hotels in Egypt if you’re looking for farther afield
