At least Choice Privileges points can still be used for Preferred Hotels Group luxury and boutique hotel stays.
And there are some great deals for reward stays at Choice Hotels like Clarion, Comfort Inn and Quality Inn in Europe for cities like London and Paris at just 8,000 points per hotel night over the next couple of months.
