Let’s fly from Houston on Southwest Airlines, which is a perfect choice for families. For under 80K points, a family of four can fly there round-trip. If they have the Southwest Companion Pass, it will only cost 60K points round-trip.

There are a multitude of ways to use points for lodging in Boston. Every major hotel chain has a presence there, so it will be easy to find a place to stay. We will just look at a couple of them.

Hyatt Place Boston / Seaport District

At 17K/night, this is an excellent family hotel in an outstanding area of Boston. It is a category 5 hotel so you can’t use a Hyatt category 1-4 free night certificate, but it is still a great deal for a family stay.

Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor

The Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor is also located in a great location and at 12K Hyatt points/night, you can use a free night certificate here. This is another great choice.
