Update: I didn’t expect this to last long and indeed the hotel has already jumped to 50,000 points per night. Congrats on those who moved quickly and booked!
I spotted a fantastic use of Wyndham Reward points today on Loyalty Traveler’s blog. Sadly I have been left holding a (smallish) bag of Wyndham Reward points after their recent (often unannounced) devaluations and needed to find a good use for them. As Loyalty Traveler points out, the new addition to the Wyndham family, the Wyndham New Yorker located at Eighth Avenue and 34th street in Midtown Manhattan is currently pricing at just 14,000 Wyndham Reward points per night. This hotel has over 1,000 rooms, so it clearly is a massive property in Manhattan.
My family loves visiting NYC, and we like to use points for hotel rooms to avoid the sometimes hefty average daily rates in Manhattan. Since most of the NYC hotels in the Wyndham family charge around 30,000 points per night, being able to nab this one for just 14,000 points is a steal…and likely one that won’t last long.
I booked a couple nights in the metro queen room this morning and got an error message saying that I needed to call to book, but then the online reservation went through just fine.
I’m very happy with a room in a solid location in Manhattan for 14,000 Wyndham Reward points per night that I otherwise didn’t have a great use for. Book quickly if you want to do the same since there is no guarantee the hotel will stay in this category for very long.
