Paying with certain cc's might get you 5% back, paying with cash gets me 30% ;)

Yes - with Cash and Points the tax is charged on the cash portion,
plus there is a CA occupancy fee of close to $50 at some hotels,
(and a nightly valet parking fee... $$$).
But no tax/charges when it's all points.  :)
