Deal Gone: Wyndham New Yorker changed reward night price from 14,000 points to 50,000 points per night within 10 hours of this post. Now that reward rate seems too high at the top level. Hope this post helped you score a deal. —
Wyndham New Yorker is the latest hotel to join the Wyndham brand and is now the largest hotel of the 170 Wyndham hotels worldwide in the brand with 1,083 rooms. The hotel is located at Eighth Avenue and 34th street in Midtown Manhattan.
I normally have little interest in visiting New York, but with Wyndham Rewards points to burn and finding the Wyndham New Yorker at 14,000 points per night, I booked five nights in May 2014 to get a taste of the Big Apple one more time.
Classic Metro Queen Room on Floor 19 or above at 14,000 points.
Yeah, that’s right. Wyndham New Yorker at 14,000 points per reward night.
Published rates starting at $200 to $250 before tax ($230 to $290 after tax) make Wyndham Rewards points quite valuable for reward nights at 14,000 points for the Wyndham New Yorker.
Don’t be surprised if there is another unannounced change to Wyndham Reward hotel category for this hotel after today’s post.
Update: Wyndham Rewards is selling points with 20% bonus during March 2014. Normal rate is $11 per 1,000 points.
$143 buys 14,950 points. $264 buys 28,800 points. $385 buys 42,000 points to bring the room rate down to $129 per reward night.
