Looking at spending two nights at the Kyoto Ritz Carlton. Rack rate is around $550 per night. I will not have status. Any thoughts? Location, service, transportation, ability to get to sights/restaurants etc. I will likely have to do some manufactured spend, use Chase points etc to get to the 120,000 mark. Worth it? Trying to limit my out of pocket expense for the trip and the decision to stop over in Japan I think is going to raise the budget significantly. The other three nights will probably be at the Crown Plaza or a traditional Japanese hotel.
