Midwest's tie to Hilton is only for earning points, not spending them. Where you can use your Midwest Miles for hotel stays is with the Raddison family. Or if you don't have a large enough amount to get a single say, you might be able to get something in the periodic Skymiles auctions.

Points.com eats up so much value when making a transfer that it (in my opinion) is really a last resort.
It doesn't help the OP, but two obvious miles-to-points or points-to-miles transfers that are frequently made are:

AA to Hilton (1 AA = 2 HH; I think you have to have 25k AA or be AA elite)

*wood to many airlines (1 *point = 1 mile; 1*point = 1.25 miles in 20k increments)

I believe YX may have been one of the few airlines that offered a similar transfer deal to HH in the past, but that ended a couple of years ago.
