Well, some people say that the Auberge Saint Antoine is actually superior. I did not try it personally but those two hotels are at the top for sure.
By the way, what do you get for their new "Urban...

You'll get a king but that's it. Obviously, no upgrade.

Be sure to be there on time !

Breakfast or spa access, that's it.

Not just a matter of principle. Because it could happen to you as well. And that shows that the hotel is going to treat you poorly if you book using points (which I and many others can confirm, even...

Starwood used to sell point at 0.02625$ when running a promo. So 0.01$ per Bonvoy point is not a great deal IMO...

The "given the location of the hotel, bla bla bla" is pure BS. Nobody have asked not to pay for the missed night. Just keep the points which have been used to book it and that's it.

That's said,...

Well, maybe now they will charge a penalty if you don't show on a prepaid rate (which of course you cannot cancel once booked :D )

- if you book using cash a flexible rate and no-show you will be charged for 1 night (this is the standard rule for basic hotels with 48h cancellation policy).

Actually, I think they are looking for this kind of bad publicity. They don't want anyone staying with points. They are betting that they will be sold-out anyway due to where they are situated, so...

Seems pretty simple for me. You cancel before the deadline, you get your points back. You ancel after the deadline / no show, you lose your points. Period.

I disagree on the "stipulated in the contract". Writing it at the end of an email send days after the booking is done is not really "stipulated in the contract" IMO. But you are right on the main...
