Choice Privileges London UK 8 hotels 8,000-12,000 points reward nights

Choice Hotels has five properties in London, England at 8,000 to 12,000 points per reward night for some dates in summer and fall.

In addition, three more Choice hotels in the London region, Richmond-upon Thames, St. Albans and Windsor are 10,000 or 12,000 points per reward night.

Paris has many hotels in the 8,000 to 12,000 points this summer too. The main difference in value is due to London hotel average room rates being priced far higher than Paris hotel average room rates this summer 2017. You might have a hard time finding a lower priced hotel in London than the cost to buy Choice Privileges points for reward nights.

Choice Hotels reward rates range from 6,000 points to 30,000 points per night for most hotels worldwide. Choice Privileges has seasonal rates for hotel rewards. Hotels often change rates in different travel seasons.

London hotels are a good example illustrating seasonal reward night variation in points needed for a free night.

There is not necessarily a strong correlation between location, room rate and reward rate.

The reward night cost dynamic works in favor of the hotel loyalty member at times when you plan or randomly find yourself visiting an expensive hotel city with low reward night rates, like London.

Choice London Clarion Windsor

London and regional Choice Hotels offer some of their lowest reward rate dates during 10 weeks of summer rates, the time many tourists travel to London, England.

Only 12,000 points Sunday through Thursday from July 2 to September 15, 2017.

Average room rates range from about 85 GBP / $109 USD to 135 GBP / $173 USD at these eight Choice Hotels.

Choice Privileges members can buy 12,000 points for $90 with Points Plus Cash rewards with a canceled reservation. Finding those Points Plus Cash reward night options on the website seems to be a persistent problem in the past couple months.

Choice Privileges members can also buy 50,000 points in a calendar year at rate of $11 per 1,000 points. You might still save money on a London hotel paying an $11 rate for Choice Privileges points.

  1. you may like my video of the best choice hotel ive stayed at and i stayed 106 nights last year – its a video of a 6,000 point suite in page,arizona just 200 to 300 yards from awesome overlook
    we both seem to earn in USA and spend in europe,japan,austrailia
    video is on facebook under search name 12 step nomad hope you enjoy

  2. Sorry for the dumb question, but how do you know the rate they will charge if more than 1 month out? I thought they hid that. (Or is this something you can see because you are an elite with them?)

  3. @bluecat – I did not spell it out explicitly.

    https://www.choicehotels.ca

    Choice Hotels Canada website has seasonal reward rates for any Choice Hotel posted to November.

    USA members can see international hotels up to 60 days out.

    I am Choice Privileges Platinum and able to book up to 75 days out.

    Another feature of Choice Privileges is some hotels have many room category types available for standard reward prices. I have booked many upgrade room categories and even several suites using Choice Privileges points.

    I did not see any upgrade room types for London hotels I checked.

  4. @Ron – The Canada website is only to see what the reward rate is for a specific hotel over the next couple of seasonal dates through November.

    Use Choice Privileges to actually see reward rates in points for booking a reservation.

    https://www.choicehotels.com/choice-privileges

    For North America hotels, you can see reward night point rates for next 30 days and outside North America 60 days, if you are a general member.

    If you try to see the reward rate for a date beyond your Choice Privileges membership level, the hotel will show “Sold Out”.

    My 75 day Platinum elite booking window allows me to see reward availability to September 11 today.
