Well, at your pace, in four years, you will be a Lifetime Globalist.

In the meantime, use your suite upgrades and then points to upgrade, and you should never be in a small room again.

For Kyoto - Hyatt if it fits your budget. On foot, Westin would be slightly more convenient to trains or subways. The main cafe/restaurants are similar as well, though Hyatt had a Maiko show up on...

Osaka is usually cheaper, but that doesn't seem to be a factor for you. Osaka's downside is its somewhat remote bayside location, which also isn't a factor for you. KIX bus to Osaka takes about 45...
