The wife is planning a trip to Paris. This is sudden and planned around leaving in 2 weeks- don't ask! I have a zillion Starwood and Hilton points. 1- Which specific hotel property would you guys recommend for her to stay so she is within walking distance of museums and the main visitor sights? 2- In attempting to get her there I have over 100,000 United points, >200,000 AA and several hundred thousand Delta points. The problem is they are in my name, not hers. Do any of these programs allow me to book a ticket for a spouse when I am not traveling with them? 3- She has just over 100,000 Delta points. From Delta's search engine I have found an acceptable flight but it is 100,000 in Bus Class and not a non stop. I know the search engine Delta has does not work very effectively. Any suggested alternative ways to find a better/cheaper award seat?
