Finding higher value Best Western Rewards rooms with points

Best Western Rewards, Choice Privileges and Wyndham Rewards all share a feature not seen in Hilton Honors, World of Hyatt, IHG Rewards Club and Marriott Rewards – each of these three lower market segment hotel chains have some hotels offering higher category rooms at standard reward rates.

The challenge is finding which hotels offer higher category rooms at standard reward rates. When I search a location for Best Western hotels, I tend to check reward nights for each hotel to see what types of rooms are available using Best Western Rewards points.

Innsbruck, Austria – Hotel Goldener Adler

Classic room is a 104 EUR ($118 USD) standard room category for Hotel Goldener Adler at 32,000 points.

Deluxe room is a 178 EUR ($201 USD) room also available for 32,000 points at Hotel Goldener Adler, Innsbruck, Austria.

Best Western Plus Hotel Goldener Adler in Innsbruck, Austria offers a higher category Deluxe room priced 74 EUR ($83 USD) more than the Classic room, yet both room types are available on Feb 18, 2019 in peak ski season as a standard reward night for 32,000 points.

Schaffhausen, Switzerland – Hotel Bahnhof

Hotel Bahnhof Standard Room is 230 CHF ($230 USD) or 32,000 points.

Hotel Bahnhof Junior Suite is 300 CHF ($300 USD) or 32,000 points.

Best Western Plus Hotel Bahnhof in Schaffhausen, Switzerland offers a junior suite for points with a $70 per night higher room value than the standard room.

Aalst, Belgium – Keizershof Hotel, Best Western Premier

Keizershof Hotel is 205 EUR ($232 USD) for a standard room or 245 EUR ($277 USD) for a Deluxe room or 8,000 points for either room.

Best Western Premier Keizershof Hotel Deluxe room for 8,000 points is an astounding $35 per 1,000 points redemption value based on July 2019 room rates. Best Western Rewards allows members to buy points at the rate of $10 per 1,000 points when making a reservation and short of points.

These are just a few examples of the kinds of hotel deals that are available with Best Western Rewards points. Most Best Western hotels do not offer significantly higher category rooms for points reward nights. The secret to unlocking higher redemption value with Best Western Rewards is finding hotels among the 4,000 hotels worldwide that offer higher category room types for points.

  1. It is always a good to buy those rooms on discount whenever going for a vacation with family or friends but sometimes purchasing it over and over again yearly costs a lot because i pay visit to my cousins yearly with family members and when ever i get back i have to start from zero again because all the savings gets spent on the trip, so i brought up an alternate for that and i bought condos in Toronto because staying at hotels cost a lot and buying condos is a one time investment and is much cheaper than houses.
