    I try to do points/cash option in Europe rather than full points. Stayed in Venice this way with canal view, great location. I focus on cat 4 or 5 properties and use full points if the cost is over 200 euro or more per night that's my test. In Rome I used local hotels not SPG.

    For me, Italy is the reason for getting star points. I will watch this thread but live it up!

    Have you seen the threads on TOBB regarding Carlson F&F rates?

    The OP surely wants to know about Starpoints and Starwood instead of Carlson!;)

    Indeed, Italy getting expensive even on full points, try P&C when available, overall the Italian properties are very diserable, but they very expensive incl. high overnight rates in cash, points or cash and points!:) P&C seems best value for some!:)

    Unless I'm mistaken, Cash & Points.

    Ditto! You are correct!:) Cash and Points seems to be the best value with many high-end Starwood properties, when available!;)
