Low reward rates at many Choice Hotels in Paris

There are eight Choice Hotels in Paris in the Comfort Inn and Quality Inn brands. Four of these Paris hotels are currently 12,000 points per night, one is 10,000 points and three hotels are 20,000 points. A dozen or so more Choice Hotels are within the immediate suburbs of Paris. Besides low reward night rates, actual published rates are fairly low for several of these hotels.

In 2013 I wrote about low Choice Privileges reward rates at 8,000 points per night in Paris. Then, many of those low rates went up to 20,000 to 36,000 points the last couple years. One of the big changes I see in 2016 for Paris is there are no longer any upscale Clarion Collection Hotels. The former properties look like they went independent.

Comfort Hotel Sixteen Paris Montrouge is one of the highest rated Choice Hotels, just south of the Paris official city boundary, near a metro station and about 3 miles from city center Paris.
