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.
just realized the whole calculation is busted because the Business Platinum does not offer 5x per dollar on FHR spend. Only the Personal Platinum does. Glad I didnít make an FHR booking...
