157 Preferred Hotels in Europe bookable with Choice Privileges points

Choice Privileges can be used to book 553 hotels Preferred Hotels & Resorts worldwide. There are currently 157 Preferred Hotels in 22 European countries bookable with Choice Privileges points at 25,000 to 55,000 points per night.

The main drawback of booking Preferred Hotels with Choice Privileges points is the necessity of booking by phone with Choice Privileges Service Center.

Use the availability calendar below to check your dates. Bookings are not available online. All reward reservations are for standard rooms; single/double occupancy. Only reservations made via the Choice Rewards Customer Service will be honored for this program.

To make your reservation please call:

  • U.S. residents call 888-770-6800
  • Canada residents calls 866-283-3510
  • European residents call +800-800-44-700
  • Mexico residents call 01 800 36 HOTEL (46835)
  • Australia residents call 1-800-806-644 (AUS) or 0-800-443-101 (NZ)

Choice points are deducted at the time a booking is confirmed.

Note: Denmark, Norway and Sweden hotels on the list below are both Nordic Choice Hotels and Preferred Hotels & Resorts. These hotels are priced significantly lower through Choice Privileges as regular reward nights rather than through the higher priced Preferred Hotels rewards using Choice Privileges points.

Update: July 14 – This list has been amended to add another 28 hotels left off the list in my original post. Democracy requires an informed public. I was too distracted watching CSPAN3 during 10 hours of Peter Strzok FBI testimony on July 12 before Congress while compiling this list of hotels to notice additional hotels beyond the first page when listing France, Italy, Spain and UK properties.

  1. are all preferred hotel bookable with choice points?

    I am looking at the Keekorok lodge in Kenya and it does not appear in the list. I know people used to book these a few years ago,

  2. @Alan – No. There are Preferred Hotels & Resorts not listed as Choice Privileges partners.

    For example, Italy shows 34 hotels on Preferred Hotels website, while only 27 of these hotels are listed as partner awards with Choice Privileges. There are 3 London hotels and St. Andrews Scotland listed with Preferred Hotels that are not on Choice Privileges list.

    Nearly all other hotels in Europe as far as I noticed appear on both Preferred Hotels and Choice Privileges.

    Kenya shows 4 hotels on Preferred Hotels website, while only 1 of these hotels is listed as a partner award with Choice Privileges.

    Thanks for your question. It made me realize that I missed 28 hotels in France, Italy, Spain and UK when I compiled the original list and missed hotels not displayed on the first page of results.

  3. “The main drawback of booking Preferred Hotels with Choice Privileges points is the necessity of booking by phone with Choice Privileges Service Center.”

    Hmm…I would say the main drawback is the lousy redemption value for budget travelers.

    Or maybe I missed that there are some hidden gems in that list? (So many cheap luxury hotels in K.V., btw)

  4. @Bluecat – I have never used my Choice Privileges points for a Preferred Hotel redemption. When it comes to upper upscale and luxury hotels, I generally prefer to book these kinds of places on paid rates in off-season when rates drop to around $100 for some hotels that are $250+ in more popular travel periods.

    The reason I put a photo of Imperial Karlovy Vary, CZ is this is one of the few hotels where I see good value in a Choice Privileges redemption for a visit in a peak season travel time.

    One of the best values with Choice Privileges points is The Thief, Oslo. I had two nights booked for August for 20,000 points per night when lowest room rate $449 per night, but plans did not work out to fly to Oslo.

    Transiting through Madrid instead.

  5. On a suggestion from an earlier post of yours, I booked 4 nights at Hotel Sign in Stockholm. 6K + some small cash amount per night. The price was right.
