New Travel Package Point Costs

In the old Marriott Rewards program, I could use 270,000 points to get a certificate for a 7-night stay at a Category 1-5 hotel plus 120,000 Southwest miles. In the new Bonvoy program the equivalent package seems to cost 330.000 points. For that you get a certificate for a 7-night stay at a Category 1-4 hotel and 110,000 Southwest miles. I know hotels have been reassigned Categories, so let's say the hotel certificate is equivalent. I'm still using 60,000 more points and getting 10,000 fewer miles.

 

Am I misunderstanding something? I thought the Bonvoy program was to have the "Same Great Benefits"?
