Because you can sell/barter the points at the higher value.
I guess you can.  Not everyone wants to skirt the rules though (not judging, just saying)

Why is it that when I check the box of "SAVE UP TO 50% THIS HOLIDAY SEASON" the points rate go up?
For example: the Hampton Inn Manhattan/Times Square South is regular 40k, but withe the promo its 94,920 points?

Neither.  Trade for Hyatt/UR points and stay at the Andaz 5th.

If you can get into the Splash Suite it is.

Still one of the nicest rooms I've stayed in.

Need a hotel in NY as well. Prefer to use SPG, don't want to spend a lot, but want something decent. How's the Sheraton on Duffield?

Even a regular suite is awesome.
Went for our anniversary and we got 2 bottles of champagne (1 kosher, 1 not :D)
Plus $75 diamond brekkie credit.

Great hotel, no doubt, but for me the Splash Suite was fantastic.

Like 40% of the room is the bathroom!!

my points are worth alot more because im guaranteed a suite with spg. so its not worth it to exchange my points.
so once again. if im going with spg whats my best option.
W hoboken promised me the ewow for the points of a regular room. but i want to know if thats my best option.

W Downtown is very nice and new.  If you have any status with Hilton, Conrad NY is spectacular.
