Also I think your points vs. cashback calculation is off. You earn MR on full spend, including taxes and fees. You will not get cash back on taxes and fees. In NYC, that's at least 14.75% of room rate. I would also value MR at 1.8 to 2 cpp, not 1.5. YMMV.
Out of curiosity, which room did you book at the langham originally that got you the junior suite upgrade?

and even with the MR at 1.8 to 2 cpp, the value from hotels.com is still over 2x.
