Converting to MR. 3 is bigger than 1 so you'll get more points. Same reason Zimbabwean dollars are better than US dollars

No need to convert unless you actually want to spend the points at one or the other is there?

@BCG1 it's 3:1 not 1:1

Went with Starwood, and was sad at how little my 321k Marriott points are worth.

like

Depends on how much the room you are interested in booking is. A room at a SPG property for 10,000 points per night is the same value as a room at a Marriott property for 30,000 points were night. Figure out which rooms you like best and do the math to figure out the better point value. Then transfer points as needed.

like

They're roughly equal going either way

like

No M points have a fraction of the value... SPG converts 1:1 with Delta for example, M points are like 5k for 1k Delta.

like

And Marriott properties take waaaaay more points to book yet SPG point = Marriott point

Just wait and convert when you have an actual redemption option.

One spg point equals three Marriott points in their conversion for you...you can convert non stop between the two

Booked a room for my wife in Manhattan for a conference next week. Roughly equivalent hotels close to the venue, 2 nights. 80k Marriott, 24k Starwood.
