[Master List] Hotel Award Charts

Simple, but I had a new idea for a resource. I went to get a Hyatt award chart and noticed none had all of the options in one place. None. If I look at an award chart I want to see all my options.

Then I noticed nearly all the hotels do this. SPG had some info on one page and some info on another… and their new website is the most difficult to navigate that it took me 10 minutes to find the chart I was looking for. Yikes.

So I decided to remake all the award charts with their different options. So here is a page not only with all the hotel award charts, but better versions of the award charts (although I didn’t redo all of them).

Also see the airline version: Master List of Airline Award Charts.

Link to each award chart here:

Marriott Rewards (and Ritz Carlton points) Award Chart

Category / Tier 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Marriott 7,500 10,000 15,000 20,000 25,000 30,000 35,000 40,000 45,000
Ritz Carlton 30,000 40,000 50,000 60,000 70,000 n/a n/a n/a n/a

Cash and Points varies by revenue price.

Why I took out PointSavers?

PointSavers prices are irrelevant and rare. If it happens to exist you’ll see the new discounted price then. But to list it along with the Ritz Carlton prices is deceiving. It’s so rare and for such few hotels that you’re more likely to have your IHG hotel on PointBreaks but they don’t list “or 5,000 points” after every hotel because of a rare sale.

Marriott Nights & Flights

This is the best deal if you have a ton of points. Read about Marriott Nights & Flights.

Note: United gets 12% more

 

Hilton HHonors Award Chart

Category 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Hotels category 4 – 10 price awards by season, peak and off peak. Check times for specific hotels here, or just search on Hilton.com.

Hilton HHonors Cash & Points

Based on the award price (which is based on season) you can determine the cash & points price.

If the hotel is: 5,000 Points 8,000 Points 20,000 Points 30,000 Points 40,000 Points 50,000 Points 60,000 Points 70,000 Points 80,000 Points 95,000 Points
Cash & Points is: 2,000 + $30 4,000 + $35 8,000 + $40 12,000 + $50 16,000 + $67 2,000 + $85 24,000 + $100 28,000 + $125 32,000 + $142 38,000 + $200
  • 5th Night Free is available for booking online.
    • If the price varies (by staying in both off and peak season) then it takes the average price of the stay and subtracts the average.

IHG Cash & Points

You have two options:

  • Pay 5,000 points less for $40
  • Pay 10,000 points less for $70

The second is a better deal, and really it’s about, would you pay $40 – $35 to keep 5,000 points?

  2. Thank you for this, useful content without affiliate/CC links
    Too bad BA bloggers aren’t all like this

    maybe helpful to put links to actual award chart, and also “last updated date 7/25/2015″?
    I assume you’ll add it to [Resources] section also, and update it every 6 or 12 months (or whenever they de-vaule the chart)
