Check thepointsguy valuation. Good baseline for each month

Should be $0.02.

$0.027 as of this month's TPG valuations. If you are trying to hit the next tier on airline status I would book through SPG. If it's international, you'll probably have better value changing to miles and booking reward travel.

like

Also, I would earn airline miles if I book through SPG site

Airlines acknowledge status regardless of booking method. Hotels only recognize status if you book direct.

Huh?

A1 you don't earn points towards airline status if you book with airline miles. You keep your status either way, but that's beside the point here
