We booked our hotel for Beijing China using our airline points. Then we booked our flights to China but had to push out 1 week to get the best price, so we had to change our hotel dates. We got hit with a $30 change fee which looking back it was probably not wise to use our points for the hotel especially if we did not book our flights. We learned our lesson which I was trying to get the best rates for hotels and flights but it is difficult with the flights changing all the time. If using your airline points make sure to read the fine print!
