What value should I be aiming to get on a Marriott redemption?

I generally aim for at least 0.66p per point value when redeeming my Marriott points. Your own valuation may vary depending on the type of hotel you stay in yourself. Remember points often return excellent value when cash rates are high due to events and celebrations!
