  • Select “View Rates”



  • Check “Use Cash + Points”




  • You can pick and choose, when you want to pay cash and when you want to pay with points. If you selected Cash Rate on days when it is expensive, you will see an alert showing you that you can save cash by switching.



  • You will still be able to get 5th night free as long as you are redeeming points for more than 4 nights.



When is this option useful?

This option may be useful when you are looking for a stay of 6 or 7 nights and want to take advantage of “Free 5th night” option and still get the best rate for the other days. You may be able to save a few dollars by choosing to pay with points on the expensive days.

You can book “Cash + Points” for reward nights at Ritz Carlton as well, but you will still be unable to apply Club level upgrades.
