Great hotels that require little reward points – Part 2
When you look for the best deals for a hotel stay you come across different hotel brands. You see different hotel segments, old and newer properties, very expensive and not so expensive hotels. Major hotels allow you to search for reward stays using points. That’s when sometimes the magic happens. You can stumble on a number of really nice properties which require a ridiculously low number of points.
This post features hotels that require no more than 10,000 point per night. 4 hotels across 4 continents.
Holiday Inn Warsaw – Jozefow
This full-service hotel is located in the outskirts of Warsaw. It is surrounded by forests and streams. Yet, it’s only 30 minutes away from Frederic Chopin International Airport (WAW). A night will cost you only 10,000 IHG Reward Club points.
Le Méridien New Orleans
I stumbled on this hotel while helping a client plan his trip to New Orleans. Locate downtown, it’s only a 15-minute walk from the French Quarter. You can get a night for 10,000 Starpoints. That’s a good price compared to the lowest member rate of $264. That’s a whopping C$340! Signing-up to the Starwood Preferred Guest®* Credit Card from American Express will get you a big chunk of that long weekend stay.
You would only have to worry about airfare and end-up saving C$1,020.
Hilton Petaling Jaya
Petaling Jaya is a suburban city of Kuala Lumpur. Hilton Petaling Jaya is linked directly to Kuala Lumpur thanks to the metro. Tama Jaya station is right across from the hotel. Although the hotel rates are low (C$100 including taxes & charges), a night will cost you 10,000 Honors points. I stayed at this hotel 10 years ago. The rooms have been updated since then. So if you’re on a budget and don’t mind the 20-minute commute from Tama Jaya to KL Sentral then this is a good full-service hotel to stay at.
Constantine Marriott Hotel
Marriott has been expending its Algerian portfolio in recent years. The country is opening-up to international tourists although it’s a gradual process. Constantine is the third largest city in Algeria. The ”City of Bridges” features many museums and historical sites. The Constantine Marriott Hotel opened a few years ago. It only costs 10,000 Rewards points per night. Paid rates tend to be high (C$150-C$200), if you’re in Constantine for 2 or 3 nights then paying with points will save you easily C$400-C$600.
