I am booking Two nights at a category 4 hotel. This will cost me 40,000 points. The rate on this stay would be 418.00 with tax included. Is this a good use of my points?

This one points guy type website states it is NOT a good use of my Marriott points! See below  ___________________________________________________

Instant Redemption — Use points toward hotel credit against your total room bill. This is perhaps the worst return (0.2 cents per point) on your points, and I highly recommend avoiding this avenue.

Points required for instant redemptions at Marriott properties.
