Plats and Golds don't get discounts. But the point cost for any hotel depends upon the hotel category. To ascertain the category and points required to stay there, go to the hotel directory, bring up the hotel web page you are interested in, then scroll down and you will see the hotel category number. When you click on the category number a dialog box will open showing points per night for a stay. Note that if you stay four nights on points, the fifty night is available for NO points.
