Here are the eligible partners:
Both Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest are excluded from this conversion offer that might have made sense. I would not convert from any of these hotel partners to Guest miles unless the hotel points would be about to expire and I would need the miles for award issuance on Etihad.
