Miles aren't a problem. Flight is soon to be booked. But, accommodations on points is! I have around 50,000 points on IHG, but the closest IHG hotel is near the airport, so not really nearby the actual town of Banff, where my friend lives. I can stay at my friend's place, but on a couch. Which, as a 25 year old, I'm plenty happy doing. But If I could somehow get enough hotel points for a few nights in a low level place in Banff, I'd think about doing it! Otherwise, I might do a few nights on his couch, and stay at a hostel some other nights. Any tips or thoughts are appreciated, as always.
