Free nights can be redeemed for as few as 5,000 points. Most standard rooms are available for 95,000 points or less, but there are
some specialty properties with standard rooms for 120,000 points ! Note that these amounts are minimums, as actual requirements may
be more during peak seasons.
Rooms at Conrad, Waldorf Astoria and the latest brand LXR are at the upper end of this range. Tapestry Collection rooms seem to max
out at 80,000 points. Curio Collection properties have plenty of availability at 80,000 points.
The minimum you will need varies considerably among these properties. Some rooms with a maximum requirement of 80,000 points also
have a minimum requirement of 49,000 (eg The Caledonian - a Waldorf Astoria property). Some properties have a minimum that is half
the maximum requirement (eg Doubletree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre has a maximum of 60,000 points, but a minimum of only 31,000
