Hotels Finding hotels with good value?

    I have a newbie points/miles question.

    I'm headed to Bangkok 1/23-1/28. I'm *only now* looking for hotels. I have points in IHG, Marriott, SPG, and Club Carlson. Using TPG's points valuations (https://thepointsguy.com/…/december-2017-monthly-valuations/), I have been unable to find ANY stays in Bangkok (nor Krabi nor Chiang Mai) that get me a good value. ALL redemptions are of lesser value than that page.

    Are good redemptions hard to find and, because I've never looked before, I'm just now noticing?

    Is it too close to the travel date and that's why?

    I don't know what I don't know and would love some understanding.
