Next month I am heading to Nice and Monaco on the French Riviera. In travel planning I generally seek to balance earning and burning points and align my hotel stays with best value promotions and low rates.
During two weeks in Europe I plan to earn 17,000+ Wyndham Rewards points with two stays through the Masterpass payment promotion and complete one or two stays for my IHG Accelerate promotion offer. I also plan to redeem a Club Carlson Free Friday night I earned from my trip in July, and redeem a few points reward stays with SPG, Best Western and Choice Privileges at hotels with low reward rates.
Finding the best chain hotel deals means I typically go through all the major hotel chains to examine room rates and reward rates for the days I will be in an area.
This post is an extension of that research. I created a Google Map of the French Riviera/Cote d’Azur for 38 chain hotel properties pinned with reward rates for Best Western, Choice Privileges, Club Carlson, Hilton Honors, Hyatt, IHG Rewards Club, Marriott Rewards, SPG and Wyndham Rewards.
Hotel webpage links are embedded in Google Map at end of post below this list of hotels. Click on the icon in upper right corner of map to enlarge. Links to each hotel are available when a Hotel Pin is selected on the map.
