It's time for another point crunching analysis. For background on prior years, see my previous post at: Marriott Points - just how much are they worth - an analysis - 2013
This year's analysis presumes a 5-night stay between August 10-15 at any/all hotels within Illinois and a second stay between Jan 11-16.
Major observations (based on averages):
Overall, 93.57 points per dollar in 2014 whereas 102.30 points per dollar in 2013
Because of seasonal rate changes, point values change throughout the year
