UR rewards transfer to Marriott at a 1:1 ratio, but it's a one-way street. You can't transfer Marriott points *back* to UR.

That being said, why not consider Hyatt? Their points system is still second to SPG in terms of worth/redemption value, whereas Marriott has recently devalued their proprietary currency, and has never been stellar to begin with.

lol, good reason. I mean why not, people buy many things based on looks--important thing is you are happy with it.

True MR isn't what it used to be, but if you save your points for the right time you can still score some pretty sweet deals.
