Krakow, Poland Hotel Rewards Map

After four trips to Krakow, Poland in the past 14 months, this city is a place with loads of fond memories for Kelley and me. We are debating whether to go there again this winter. Gdansk, Poland is also an attractive destination that also appeals to me for a winter trip to the chilly Baltic seaport.

It is not that we do not want to visit new places like Croatia and Portugal, but the price of traveling to Poland in winter with so many hotels offering low reward night rates to burn and low published rates to earn points while spending conservatively is a bargain hard to match elsewhere in Europe.

I created a Google Map for Krakow chain hotels with reward rates. I have stayed in five of these loyalty points hotels including Best Western Premier Q Hotel, Hampton Krakow, Holiday Inn Krakow, Hotel Indigo Krakow and Radisson Blu Krakow.

The main aspect to keep in mind is Best Western and to a lesser degree Hilton Honors have variable reward night rates depending on season for Best Western and published room rates for Hilton.

Best Western rates range from 12,000 points in winter for Best Western Plus Krakow Old Town to 20,000 in summer. I list the range of reward night point levels for Best Western hotels I found with variable rates.

 

Best Western Rewards 5 hotels

Best Western Plus Krakow Old Town 12,000 to 20,000 points

Krakow Hotel Best Western Premier Opolska 8,000 to 16,000 points

Best Western Efekt Express Kraków Hotel 8,000 to 12,000 points

Best Western Premier Q Hotel Plus Kraków 12,000 to 16,000 points. Confusing name since Q Hotel Plus is a Polish hotel brand and this hotel is rated a BW Premier property.

Best Western Hotel Galicya 8,000-12,000 points

Club Carlson 2 hotels

Park Inn Krakow Club Carlson 28,000 points

Radisson Blu Krakow Club Carlson 44,000 points

Hilton Honors 4 hotels

Hilton Garden Inn Krakow 20,000 points

DoubleTree by Hilton Krakow Hotel & Convention Center 20,000 points

Hampton Inn by Hilton Krakow 5,000 points

Hilton Garden Inn Krakow Airport 10,000 points

IHG Rewards Club 2 hotels

Holiday Inn Krakow City Centre 20,000 points

Hotel Indigo Krakow Old Town 30,000 points

Note: Holiday Inn is actually closer to Krkaow Rynek Glowny Old Town main square than Hotel Indigo. Both locations excellent.

SPG 1 hotel

Sheraton Grand Krakow 10,000 points

Accor Le Club Accorhotels 5 hotels

Mercure Krakow Stare Miasto/Old Town

Ibis Krakow Stare Miasto/Old Town

Novotel Krakow Centrum

Ibis Krakow Centrum

Novotel Krakow City West

Note: 2,000 Accor points = 40 EUR credit on paid rates, which is a fundamentally different program model than other loyalty programs. Ibis and Ibis Styles are included in Le Club Accorhotels. Ibis Budget brand hotels do not participate in Le Club Accorhotels, which is why I did not include Ibis Budget Krakow on my map.

  1. IHG raised the rates for Holiday Inn Krakow from 15K to 20K in 2017.

    Hampton Inn at 5K is a fantastic deal in peak summer months when Krakow rates can be high for more centrally located hotels.
