I have 315k Marriott Bonvoy points and a couple of free nights in addition. What is the best bang for my buck in terms of locations / experiences I could get? I am super flexible on timing and location, just want the best experience. Any thoughts?

Just spent 2 ish weeks in New Mexico / Utah / CO nationals parks where the hotels are around 200/300 $ plus.. honestly some were around 400. I got night stays for 12,500- 20,000.. which in my calculation was a great value. I’ve gotten some good value in Portland , Maine as well. The only bad values I see rn are in big cities since hotels are rather cheap aka Seattle , Denver , Atlanta , LA and so on.

Depending on what your looking for - I did a solo trip down to the W South Beach in Miami and had an absolute blast last month. Super expensive rooms so not a bad redemption overall.
