    I have a SPG earnings related question with these two hotels... Im not entirely up to speed on the actual segmentation of these two hotel brands... are Four Points and Aloft equivalent categories...? (for earning points, stay credit, etc.)...?

    Both hotels Im looking at (at San Antonio Airport) are the same SPG category (2) ... and the rates are basically the same, only a $10 difference... will either brand provide me with better earning opportunities or does it only matter what rate I pay...?

    Thanks.

    They are the same in earning points and stay credit and also in welcome gift starwoods points of 125 if you are Gold or a Plat member. I would go with which ever has better amenities like free internet, breakfast, location, shuttle and such. I personally like the unique modern look of the Aloft hotels and rooms. Alsot I just looked and the Aloft in san antonio airport is on this weeks starpicks list and so the price just dropped to $87 if you are staying any day thurs-sun.

    The Aloft which is supposedly a budget W Hotel (at least that's how they advertise it) does not provide for Platinum upgrades.

    It's 125 points (new) for Gold but 250 for Plat.
