Booked up tickets, the next step will consider the question of where to live.The purpose of this trip is not to spend money trying not to spend money, determined by point award night.Since blogger only two SPG, IHG hotel points, and then choose a hotel chain owned by SPG.The results happen to SPG points out the value of each point 5.5C, of course, is not so smooth.Points exchange for blogger was the first hotel probably will be novice, hope that God will forgive me.

- Please pay attention to the series article, I Orlando, Disney's introduction:
1. Points booking process
SPG.com website search for all Orlando hotels owned by SPG, fill out the check in time, we can see the result
Disney entering addresses, you can mark specific locations, then pick the hotels around enlargement
Referring to SPG points for Free Night is the ability to order the room, 3000 in the figure are the every day needs of the lowest point of the booking number.SPG website given above and we can compare the prices, if the exchange rate difference, such as $100 10K SPG to order value-a-night room
- SPG $100*100/10K=1c/SPG equivalent to the conversion value of each point point
Then we don't have to Exchange.In General, each point in 2.5C, we can consider the Exchange.
2. Calculation and analysis of the points value
Blogger eventually selected the figure of a cat 2, Sheraton, needs points 3k.This is because a day is a weekend, weekend cat 2 3k (now regrets not day weekend).And usually need points 4k points.It required for the five night or 19k SPG points (less than SPG card I sent 25k), on average only every night 3.8k SPG.And such a room are for sale from the SPG website $154 (according to the SPG's lowest rates, which is the lowest of the whole network), the calculation of points from each point is the value of 4C.From another perspective, I passed the SPG credit card, each $1 spent get 1 star point, and every bit of SPG worth 4 cents (used for booking this hotel), so the SPG credit card cash back card is equivalent to a 4%.
This is not finished, the lowest price we can find that $154 is not the final price, plus taxes of nearly $40 (contains $19.95 places charge) using SPG points booking, room rate is 0, so naturally no tax, only attractions.This way is equivalent to SPG points out ($154+$20) value of/3.8k=4.6c, equivalent to 4.6% SPG card into a cash back credit card.The lowest price is not including cancellation fees, that is, after you cancel a fee.If you want to cancel in advance, every day plus $10.Looking back at SPG points for hotels, without cancellation fees, on a specified date (usually three days prior to arrival) to cancel, do not charge extra fees, better be dispensed with SPG points will instantly back to your account, you can use right away.
3. Green Choice
Finally, Blogger set out the room, and before check out finds a small wool, green choice.Fact is that you don't have to clean my room, the hotel will give you 500 SPG points, of course, do not hesitate to check.Equivalent to spend 19k, returns the number of 2k (because the last day does not count).
4. The actual combat
This all seems very good, but to the hotel in the middle of the day when the accident happened.Front desk woman advised the original good King bed rooms have been sold out, now only has two bed rooms, but is facing the swimming pool, once moved again the next day, if you want a kingbed.At that time, I do not dispute, put down the baggage to live well.And this idea is so wrong.You book rooms in advance, and the hotel was sold to the room you, it is certainly their right.Is the so-called crying baby get milk, in the United States this is unfair must fight each other wrong things.So we are very serious to clarify its position and said it is the SPG credit card cardholder, and old lady continues to search, we upgraded our floor facing swimming pool suites, drawing room, bedroom and a balcony, original price plus taxes $210.So, accidentally swapped out every SPG 5.5C value.
