Today I saw 166,000 points posted to my Choice Privileges and I already redeemed 40,000 points for two room nights at a European hotel in June. Over the past week I studied dozens of hotels in many places where there is great value using Choice Privileges points. The main problem is most of the deals I found are for travel in June and my plans are already set for June.
Choice Privileges seasonal rates for nights using points change for stays July 1 to September 15, 2019. Most places see reward rates rise for summer stays.
One of the best value deals I see for Choice Privileges points are hotels on the French Riviera for stays in June.
If flying to the French Riviera there is a good chance you will arrive at Nice Airport NCE.
I have not bothered to string together consecutive dates in the three hotels below since this post is only to show the potential of Choice Privileges points in France and not put together an actual travel itinerary.
La Malmaison, an Ascend Collection member – Nice, France
Sun June 18 – Tue June 20
12,000 points per night for a Deluxe room balcony and 2-person hot tub.
Fri-Sat June 14-16, 2019
Quality Hotel Mediterranee Menton surprisingly has lower weekend rates for reward nights at 8,000 points for stays through June 30, 2019. Sun-Thu points rates are 16,000 points per night. Weekend travel to Menton, France in June is like a 2-for-1 deal.
16,000 points buys $380 in room nights for a weekend on the French Riviera in June.
June 13-16, 2019
In Cannes you can book a junior suite for 12,000 points per night. Or invite some friends and relatives to share a 2 bedroom suite for a long weekend.
Clarion Suites Cannes is one of the hotels that rises from 12,000 points per night to 30,000 points per night on July 1.
36,000 points buys $1,089 in room rates.
These three hotels show how 76,000 Choice Privileges points can buy nearly $2,000 in hotel rooms on the French Riviera in June 2019.
