Hotel award nights are the primary Choice Privileges points awards. From standard awards to Cash + Points, there are great values to be found.
Cost of Award Nights
Choice Privileges has over 7,000 properties available for award nights.
There are no published award charts. Instead, awards start at 6,000 points, with over 1,500 properties priced at 8,000 points or less.
The maximum award night price is 35,000 points (except for a whopping 75,000 in Australia).
Pricing is seasonal, so the same hotel may cost a different price at different times of the year.
Log in to your Choice Privileges account and search on the Redeem Points page to find specific pricing.
Announced for 2021, members will also soon be able to redeem points at Penn properties.
Cash + Points
Compare Cash + Points results with regular points results — you may find some great values.
Cash + Points show up in award night searches where available.
Great for Families
Many Choice Privileges properties have multi-room suites ideal for families. These can be pricey in cash.
The great news is that if they are available for award booking, the price is the same as a standard room!
Great for Europe
Many European properties offer excellent points value in popular tourist destinations, with city center locations other chains may lack.
Even better, breakfast is often included for free.
In the Nordic countries, while you can’t earn points for stays, you can still redeem points for stays. These hotels may have a free breakfast, too, and sometimes even an evening smorgasbord.
When searching for award nights, you may come upon special low pricing called FlexRewards. Certain properties offer these discounted rates on either Sunday to Thursday or Friday and Saturday.
You do not need to do anything special to book FlexRewards. You’ll book them the same as regular award nights.
Preferred Hotels & Resorts
The 500+ Preferred Hotels & Resorts include some of the most luxurious hotels in the U.S. Award nights range from 25,000 to 55,000 points per night.
You can redeem Choice Privileges points for gift cards.
