Starwood Hotels and Resorts have seven levels of hotel categories for members to redeem their Starpoints for free nights. Starwood’s third lowest category is a Category 3 property, which Starwood defines as full-service hotels and resorts in premium destinations and major cities worldwide
You will need 7,000 Starpoints for a free night for a Category 3 hotel. As a reminder, you can redeem 4 nights and get the 5th night free, meaning on a 5 night stay, you would be looking at 5,600 Starpoints per night.
Another option for Category 3 hotel is Cash and Points, which will cost 3,500 Starpoints + $55 per night.
