just returned  from 2 weeks in Europe, 5 countries all on points--tidbits.   Dublin westin right in the heart of downtown, no CL, but access to city center --temple bar area across the street, beautiful but small rooms.  Renaissance AMS continues to be a favorite as good as before some remodeling done., found a cool rib joint by the Royal Palace--Cannibal Royale 50E to split a rack, mac and cheese a few craft beers--walking distance.  Cologne Marriott a block from the train station and Cathedral---great modern property, excellent CL.  Salzburg Sheraton upgraded us to a suite, great CL on top floor, sound of music tour fun.  Venice  (Boscolo but now the Grand Hotel Dei Dogi an AC property) small rooms, away from but walking distance to San Marco Square, no CL but public water taxis from the train station (4.2 or 5.2 boat) to "orta" stop steps to the hotel.  Orange line from same stop to airport 16E/person one way--easy. all in all properties good  the use of SPG properties let me go where I could not go previously on points
