Michigan vs. OSU 2018: Hyatt Cash+Points vs. $455

Is that a math equation above? In a way it is. Is Michigan better than Ohio State? Recent decades say no, as does the loss in 2016 and the loss in 2017. But let’s focus on the other side of the equation, the side where TPOL always comes out ahead. I’m talking p-p-p-points! Two nights in Columbus are much cheaper than two nights in South Bend where Michigan opens up the season as part of my Harbaugh’s Last Chance Trip Report. SPG is offering the following:

Not including tax

The Sheraton Columbus, where I stayed last year, ends up being $632 all in. Win or lose, points or cash, that’s a bit much for a weekend in Ohio. Here’s what the Hyatt is offering:

Alternatively, the room is available for 8,000 points. Still, the best deal is cash and points for the following: 

I’m leaning towards Hyatt, but since I’m losing my Globalist status, I wonder if SPG and a 4PM checkout is the way to go, especially after we paint the town maize and blue after a victory!

  1. All three are in downtown Columbus, but Le Meridien is the newest and the best of the three. It’s also at the center of the Arena and Short North districts and an easier walk to nightlife, shopping, etc than the other two.

    • Le Meridien is the best but not worth it. Uber was fine last year. Sheraton was also fine last year but I go with the cheapest.

  2. Recent decades say yes? I assume you’re referring to the 90s (yes) 80s (maybe). OSU has OWNED Michigan for the past 20 years, and I’m not saying that lightly. What have you guys won 4 maybe 5 games? Anyways we’re all homers at heart.

    As you know all those hotels you mentioned are fine. Hyatt prob least do but it’s a fine hotel as well. Maybe they’ll have some Buckeyes in the lounge for you.

    • Shawn, my OSU jab of the day: did you learn to read at that fine institution? Is Michigan better than Ohio State? Recent decades say no, as does the loss in 2016 and the loss in 2017.

      We are in agreement, OSU owns Michigan. Even if we win this year, we still need to win the next 20 to turn the tide.
