If you have an AMEX card 125K points gets you four nights at a Cat 6 hotel with AXON code so it could easily be converted to 4 x $200/night = $800 stay. Lower Cat properties give discounted redemptions for 5-6 night stays for example a 6 night cat 4'stay is 135K points.
So I would pay for the stay and collect the points.
I have 2013 reservations for the Casa Marina in Key West for fantasy fest and Grand Wailea in Maui which are both the equivalent of 100 points per $1.00 vs. your $0.40.

I've got a $200/night room for 17000 points, which is decent value. The minimum value should be around 1/3-cent per point.
