First time visitor and poster to this forum, but I thought this would be the place to post a minor rant.
What's up with the Points + Cash option? Shouldn't the point levels cover this? I was looking to book a room at the Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe Hotel, which is a Category 7 hotel. Depending on room size, you pay an additional 70, 90 or 140 Euros per night.
Kinda takes the wind out of the sail, doesn't it?
