How much are Choice Hotels Points worth? The answer: 0.7 cents each when redeemed for free nights at Choice brand hotels. This means that 10,000 points are roughly equal to CA$70.

Here's the breakdown of our valuations for Choice Hotels points based on redemption:

Redemption option Redemption value in cents
Free nights at Choice brand hotels 0.7
Gift cards 0.31

Redeeming Choice points for free nights: 0.7 cents per point.

The best value from redeeming your Choice Hotel Points will come from using them for free nights at Choice brand hotels. This gives you around an average value of 0.7 cents per point, but you can get more or less in value depending on the property.

Points can be used at the following Choice brand hotels:

  • Ascend Hotel Collection
  • Cambria Hotels
  • Comfort
  • Sleep Inn
  • Clarion Hotels
  • MainStay Suites
  • Suburban Extended Stay Hotel
  • WoodSpring Suites
  • Econo Lodge
  • Rodeway Inn
  • Quality Inn

Like most rewards programs now-a-days, Choice does not have an award chart. This means you will not know how much your points are worth until you start looking at hotels and running the numbers.

For example, the Hotel Royal William, Ascend Hotel Collection can cost as much as $130 per night after sales tax is factored in. This hotel normally costs 16,000 points on most days which means you'll get about 0.8 cents in value which is pretty good for Choice Points.

It's not too hard to find a redemption that gives you around 0.7 cents per point, but you'll want to run the calculations as some hotels can give you low value. Generally, you'll want to compare the cash price versus the point prices for all properties in a given area if you're really looking to maximize your rewards with Choice.

Gift cards & donations: 0.31 cents per point.

Choice Hotel points can be redeemed for gift cards starting at 8,000 points for a CA$25 gift card. This will give your points a value of 0.31 cents each.

Gift card amount Redemption cost
$25 8,000 points
$50 16,000 points
$100 32,000 points

You can also redeem Choice Hotel points for charitable donations starting at 1,000 points for a $5 donation. This gives your points a value of 0.5 cents each.

Choice point transfers to partners: 0.24 cents to 0.4 cents per point.

Choice Hotel Points earned with Choice Rewards Canada can be transferred to a handful of partners. This can be done through the Rewards Exchange option after you've linked a partner to your Choice Privileges account.

The transfer ratio will vary depending on the partner, but more than half of the partners transfer at a 5:1 ratio meaning 5,000 Choice Points will give you 1,000 miles/points with partner programs.

If you need to top off a frequent flyer account or you're trying to empty your Choice Privileges Points balance, this is solid option.
