How many STARWOOD points is equivalent of 1 night stay?

I recently switched from HHonors to SPG and got the AMEX SPG card. I understand that the points I earn from AMEX purchases contribute to SPG status. So I am wondering what the conversion rate is ? meaning how many SPG points is equivalent to one night Starwood stay?

Thanks

Points != Status in SPG

It's not that a number of points earned gets you status with SPG. Status is earned after a number of nights or stays in a calendar year.

Where the Amex card comes into this is that as part of your annual fee you're granted 5 nights credit towards earning Gold/Plat status.

I didn't see anything about the amount of spending on the card affecting status on the US card. On the Canadian SPG Amex you're granted Gold status after $30k spending in a year.

Welcome to Starwood

Just like Hilton, depends which hotel ( category) you want to redeem your points at. Weekend night at a category 1 hotel requires just 2000 points. one night at category 7 hotel ( peak season) requires 35000 points

check the redemption chart.

Go to SPG.COM, Search for a hotel and it will tell you How many points you need.

Four Points can be 3000. Typical hotels in the US are 7000 or 10000 per night.

$30,000 in spend bumps you to SPG Gold on the US card. You also get the 2/5 stay/night credits toward status. You cant get Plat though with card spending level though.
