All things points

So I like to choose a hotel based on max points I get and if there is a lounge. Is anyone here familiar with Boston hotels that wants to give me information on some of the hotels they tried? I see...

Long wharf lounge is the nicest (M Club). Westin Copley, Marriott Copley, and Sheraton Copley all have comparable lounge (I ranked in order of quality of hotel) Renaissance lounge is decent but location may be inconvenient. These are the only downtown Marriotts with lounges that I can think of.

There is the Westin and Marriott in Copley, W, Marriott vacation, the Liberty hotel, etc. anyone stay at any of these?

Liberty is the nicest, but I’ve had better luck with upgrades at the Westin. These two are pretty far apart, so I usually pick based on proximity to client site.

Marriott vacation is very difficult to get into- I believe it is mostly time share. Liberty is very cool to see- one time was enough for me- the location isn’t great. It is right next to mass gen hospital and it is pretty far away from all the main downtown attractions (definitely not walkable)

The Row an Autograph collection and Westin Copley are the nicest. I have stayed in 21 different hotels over the last 2 years in boston. of course within my budget.

How do you all manage the months when you couldn't travel every week (doctor's rec) but were not yet on maternity leave? Given my industry focus and home office, I have very limited local project options. Did anyone go internal for 1-2 years and how did that play out for promotion?
