Which Rate Would You Choose?

Poll created by razorbackfan on Jan 20, 2017

We are planning a very brief 3-night stay in the Orlando area hoping to see manatees who are attempting to stay warm. I want to take full advantage of the current Spring Megabonus which doubles the points you receive on your first three stays.  With that in mind, I have made a reservation for the first night south of Orlando using my husband's Marriott Rewards account and a reservation at the airport Renaissance using my free night certificate (Yikes, I wonder if that will count as one of my first 3 stays?)  for the night prior to an early morning departure.


I don't think a 1-night stay at a Residence Inn would increase my point total very much, but I would like to stay at the property in downtown Orlando; therefore,  I would need to make the reservation on my husband's account.  He doesn't have any points in his account so I would need to transfer the points from my account to his if we chose to use points.


I have listed the rates available in the poll and I am interested in which one you would choose and why.
