Free stays not so free

A writer recently related an experience in Hawaii using points for a stay.  Upgrades and resort fees amounted to a pretty penny.

 

Here are the details.

    Yes..there were extra costs. but the overall costs were greatly reduced (by using Marriott Points) by not having to pay for the hotel stay. I have learned from Pingreeman that Marriott points get you a lot more bang for the buck than other hotel chains!!!

      Absolutly,

       

      Recently used points in Paris, and a comparable Hilton property was three times the amount of points as the Renaissance.  Don't forget the CL's, I figure that is equal to at least $100 per day for two people.

        Yes and the writer could have saved more by not upgrading the room
