Choice hotels is most commonly known as a way to get solid accommodations in no frill hotels. However, you may not realize this, but Choice partners with Preferred Hotels which are anything but economy. The redemption prices to stay at luxurious Preferred Hotels range from 25k to 55k. With the current promo you can buy points for less than 1/2 a cent ( .48 cent if you buy 55k), and then redeem them at some incredible properties. I put together a list of some hotels in the States that caught my eye, but there are incredible hotels around the world ( Both Fullertons in Singapore are on the list ) that may pique your interest.
Here’s the promo from Daily Getaways
You can buy a package two times, in total that’s 278k points for $1388 or just a hair under 1/2 a cent a point.
Now let’s check out some UBER luxurious properties you can swoop into with those newly purchased points.
Montage rarely drops below $595 a night – with this deal you could have it as low as $265
Ojai Valley Inn is a Hollywood fave located in Santa Barbara Wine Country. Rates regularly fetch $500+
Easily one of the most Iconic hotels in all of America and around the corner from BoardingArea’s HQ!
The Jefferson has one of the best locations in the city and rates regularly push upwards of $500 a night
A drop dead gorgeous hotel located in Hana ( formerly the Hotel Hana) where rates normally crack $400 +
The Brown for $125 a night is a steal.
The Grand Dame of New Orleans where rates regularly start at $400 a night
Another fanastic hotel in a great location. $265 is a steal for the Boston Harbor Hotel
One of the most famous hotels in New York. On my bucket list to stay at and may be one of the reasons I’d purchase. Rates typically start at $450+
You can search more hotels and availability here – I found space wasn’t a big issue searching in the next 1 or 2 months.
