This post lists 167 hotels included in 30,000 points reward night level as a historical record for properties at the highest points level. There were only 164 hotels when I compiled a list three days ago on April 5. Two more hotels in Florida and one in Puerto Rico were added.
The numbers do not add up for the total Wyndham Rewards hotels worldwide listed (8,735) on the locations page and the number associated with the three different price points (167+6,079+2,461 = 8,707). I did not bother to make an actual count.
