Loyalty Traveler Analysis

There are 12 hotel loyalty programs partnering with Aeroplan for points-to-miles conversions. I have made a list of conversion rates for each hotel program. Most programs have a fixed points-to-miles conversion rate. For these programs I show the conversion rate for 5,000 miles. Wyndham Rewards is slightly different since Wyndham points must be converted at set levels and there is no conversion for 5,000 miles. I have shown the conversions necessary to earn each bonus for Wyndham.

Some programs have a variable miles conversion rate where a better exchange rate is offered when higher amounts of hotel points are converted. Club Carlson and Marriott Rewards offer better exchange rates at higher points transfers.

Hyatt Gold Passport (50,000 points = 25,000 miles) and Starwood Preferred Guest (20,000 points = 25,000 miles) give 25% more bonus miles when converting hotel points at the 20,000 miles threshold.

Hotel Points to Aeroplan Miles Conversion Rates (Bonus Miles included)

  • Accor 20,000 points = 12,000 miles.
  • Best Western 25,000 points = 6,000 miles.
  • Carlson 40,000 points = 6,000 miles.
  • Carlson 66,000 points = 15,000 miles.
  • Carlson 66,000 points = 15,000 miles.
  • Carlson 150,000 points = 31,000 miles.
  • Choice 25,000 points = 6,000 miles.
  • Coast Hotels 5,000 points = 6,000 miles.
  • Hilton 50,000 points = 6,000 miles.
  • Hyatt 12,500 points = 6,000 miles.
  • Hyatt 50,000 points = 30,000 miles.
  • IHG 50,000 points = 12,000 miles.
  • Marriott 30,000 points = 12,000 miles.
  • Marriott 70,000 points = 30,000 miles.
  • Shangri-La 5,000 points = 6,000 miles.
  • Starwood 5,000 points = 6,000 miles.
  • Starwood 10,000 points = 12,000 miles.
  • Starwood 20,000 points = 30,000 miles.
  • Wyndham 16,000 points = 7,400 miles.
  • Wyndham 25,500 points = 12,200 miles.
  • Wyndham 30,000 points = 14,000 miles.
  • Wyndham 65,000 points = 31,000 miles.

Best value in my opinion is conversion of Wyndham, Marriott and Club Carlson points based on the rate of earning points in these programs. Hyatt and Starwood are also good conversion rates. Hilton and Coast Rewards are very poor conversion rates.

Up to 5,000 bonus miles when you convert Hotel Points to Aeroplan Miles August 22-September 18, 2011.

  1. So 30,000 wyndham and 10000 would yield 25000 aeroplan, which is round trip lax-Montreal, correct?

  2. 30,000 Wyndham = 12,000 Aeroplan miles + 2,000 bonus miles = 14,000 Aeroplan miles.

    I don’t know which hotel program you are referring to for 10,000 points?

    Wyndham only allows transfers at 3 levels with 8,000 points = 3,200 miles or 17,500 points = 8,000 miles or 30,000 points = 12,000 miles.

  3. I meant Wyndham 30000 yields 14000 and starwood yields 12000 for a total of 26k aeroplan — worth it?

  4. [...] very flexible routing rules, that include two stopovers and round-the-world routing. As always, Loyalty Traveler has great analysis of this promo.TERMS AND CONDITIONS: Maximum 5,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles can be earned per [...]

  5. @Michael – It is worth it if you have a redemption plan for 26K. Basically trading two or three hotel nights for a domestic plane ticket that might be worth $400 to $500. You might have a better use for miles than domestic economy.
