Getting second thoughts about spending so many points for 5 nights at the St. Regis! Do you think it would be smarter to split my stay with another hotel like the Conrad, Sheraton full moon, W, etc.?
How many points are you spending?

I have a couple December reservations. I'm not sure if January was possible, maybe the very beginning of it was.
Early December gone to a DDFer, still have late December :)

Can't just go MLE>SR MLE>second hotel. Have to go back to MLE, so gonna cost you another seaplane ride x number of people in your party, so factor that in before deciding.
I thought about that and still think it might be worth it as the other methods and costs of transportation are not as expensive as the SR. Only me and my wife.

He booked a ton at like 26k a night. A whole different story. I know itís a great resort but when basically two nights of spg points could transfer to over 160k United points, most of us just wouldnít spend that much. But they are your points and if youíve got tons and can replenish them easily, why not? I burn a lot of Hilton points because Iím consistently earning more from work.  ;D

Weather forecast shows thunderstorms for the duration of my planned vacation to the Maldives (next week)
Should I be concerned/cancel?
