Choice Privileges raised the reward rates for several hotels in Nice, Paris and Prague sometime in the past two weeks. I know this because I checked hotel reward rates in these three cities August 20-24 and saved screen shots for dates in October. Reward night rates are higher now for most of the hotels for the same October dates.
Plus, I wrote an article August 24 on Paris hotel deals using Choice Privileges points and listed the seasonal and weekend reward rates from August 25 to January 31, 2018 for 9 Choice brand hotels in Pais. Six of these hotels now display higher reward night rates.

- Quality Hotel Mediteranee Menton increased from 8,000 to 10,000 points.
- Clarion Suites Cannes Croisette increased from 12,000 to 16,000 points.
Today I see higher rates for reward nights at 10 of 16 hotels in Nice and Paris France and Prague, Czech Republic for the same October dates compared to rates I checked August 20-24.
I assume there are many more hotels around Europe with higher reward rates for stays over the next few months. Nordic Choice Hotels are the exception. Nordic Choice Hotels maintain a year-round reward rate with few adjustments seen over the past four years. There are about 180 Nordic Choice Hotels, primarily in Norway and Sweden with a few hotels in Denmark, Finland and Baltic countries.
I have not noticed any hotels in Europe where reward rates decreased with the recent seasonal adjustments.
