Hubby and I have a free certificate for a category 1-5 from the Visa card. Looking to use that and add a few additional nights for a long weekend in October for our anniversay. In your opinion which is the nicest resort. We would like to avoid Mexico right now. Thanks!
Programs: AA Plat/2MM; Marriott/LoewsFirst Plat; IHG Spire; Hilton Diamond;SPG Gold
Where are you looking to use the free night? Anywhere in the US? NA? Anywhere in the world? When you say "nicest", what do you really mean? Beach? Big City? Luxury? Night Life? The answers will be very different based on what you really would like.
One of my favorite Marriott's in the World, the JW Marriott Hotel Shanghai at Tomorrow Square, is only a Cat. 5. The Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour is a very nice hotel in a great place to visit, especially this time of the year. The Grand Hotel just outside of Mobile, AL is an awesome hotel as is the Bay Point Marriott in Panama City Beach, FL. While I don't think either has been adversely affected by the oil spill yet, you might want to check out the local news to verify the areas. All of these are Cat. 5 hotels and well worth visiting.

this is a question I was going to ask down the road
I have the same cert but I also have a 7-night reward for Cat 5
for me, I'd like to use this for one of the following regions
1. USA (all 50)/Mexico/Carribean
the cat five visa thing I'll probably just use for a football game but the 7 nighter I need to coordinate with some reasonable flights to AA OW destinations.
AU is probably my first choice since I plan on going in 2011 but haven't really been into the research hotel mode yet until I get the award tix booked. however since the question has been asked.. i'd love to hear the comments

I want to do a Hotel + Air Package, category 1-5. Since my Gold status via United runs out in Feb., I'm looking for options for the most desirable (obviously, in your opinion!) 1-5 hotel in the lower 48 that serves complimentary, hot breakfast. Any thoughts?
