Loyalty traveler Analysis:
This is a good rate offer where I located availability. I had a hard time finding available rates for late November/early December in a dozen random checks, however, availability in January and later was easy to find in most locations.
Even better is the 3rd night free offer actually reduced the cost at every hotel where I found the rate.
Sometimes the rate difference was not all that much. Some hotels had other rates with breakfast included for around 50EUR more which could be an overall savings for a couple over three days based on typical hotel breakfast prices.
The main feature of this special offer that is uncommon for 3rd night free rates is the ability to cancel up to day of arrival at all the hotels where I found the rate.
Good luck finding this offer in Paris. There may be some weekends in Paris with availability, but I was unable to locate one.
