You’re going on vacation, or you’re going on a business trip. You care about where you stay, whether it’s for comfort, amenities, rewards, or location. What criteria do you use to pick your hotel?
For me, rewards points* (with Marriott or Hilton) is the number one criteria. Comfort and amenities are second. And location (within a reasonable Lyft-able** distance) is third.
*Marriott and Hilton allow me to transfer rewards point to Delta in SkyMiles.
**I get extra American Express rewards points with Lyft, which gives me SkyMiles with Delta.
