Would you spend $125 a night for a nice Marriott resort or use 30k points plus $15 parking for average Delta Hotel?

$125 is a bargain

gotta do the calculation. ((cost for room/points) x 100) > 0.80. if you're under then no, if you're over then yes.

Even more valid for what the OP asked. He has the choice of a better hotel for $125 or the crappier Delta for 30K points. Given 30k points are worth $240, it’s a no brainer to take a better hotel for about half the price

The one that is $125/night shows 60k if you book on points.

So that you have a reference point, I just booked a category 5 W hotel that was $560 a night for 35k points a night.

If you’re going to be out and about the area and just need a clean bed each night, then go cheaper. If you want to spend more time on property or want an all-inclusive resort, then obviously go with the resort. There may be a resort fee so make sure you know what it is and what it includes.
