Prague hotel deals on Choice Privileges points

Yesterday I was looking for Choice Hotels in Slovakia. There aren’t any. But the Choice Hotels website did show me several hotels in Czech Republic and there are some real deals to be found with Choice Privileges points. If I had not already convinced myself to spend my time next month in Slovakia, I’d head to Prague and see more of the Czech Republic. Last year I stayed in Brno five nights on a Holiday Inn PointsBreak stay and had a good time hanging out in that city.

What makes Choice Privileges points such a good deal in Prague is Clarion Hotel Prague City is only an 8,000 points reward night. Clarion Prague Old Town is 8,000 points per night. Clarion Congress is 10,000 points per night.

Buy Choice Privileges Points for $7.70 per 1,000 points through Sep 6, 2016

Choice Privileges members in the USA/Canada can buy points for $7.50 per 1,000 points at any time by booking a Points Plus Cash reward stay and canceling it.

Loyalty Traveler – Choice Privileges Points Plus Cash Trick (Jan 30, 2015).

But you need to have at least 6,000 Choice Privileges points to do the trick. You can jumpstart your Choice Privileges account balance with a purchase of points at a 30% discount rate through September 6. The price to buy points during this limited time offer is only slightly higher, and negligible at only $10 more than Points Plus Cash Trick when you buy 50,000 points, the calendar year limit for member purchases.

Choice points Buy Sep 6

  • Buy 40,000 points = $308 ($300 using Points Plus Cash Trick)
  • Buy 50,000 points = $385 ($375 using Points Plus Cash Trick)

This reduces the price for the Clarion Prague City Hotel from $154 per night for a Best Flexible Rate down to 8 x $7.70 = $61.60 for a Standard Reward night at 8,000 points. Save a little more and conserve points booking the Points Plus Cash rate for 6,000 points + $15 = $61.20 per night. That is a 50% discount on the advance purchase nonrefundable rate for this hotel on Sep 5. There seems to be plenty of availability at all these Clarion hotels for reward nights on different dates in September.

My wife and I spent a week in Prague in 2007. Last September I only passed through Prague on my way to Brno. We both loved Prague and I think we may head back there at Christmas time for these Choice Privileges hotel deals.

  1. I often stay at the Clarion Prague City on this 8K rate. It’s a great 4 star hotel in the center and in a trendy neighborhood (Vinograde) . It was just remodeled and is 1 block from the Metro. The Green line goes to the airport for under $1. Terrific hotel.

  2. Good to know. I look at Vienna hotel prices and Prague hotel prices and think I will be heading to Prague from Vienna in December for my Christmas season trip.
