The average value of hotel rewards points hover around 0.5 to 0.8 cents each (with Hyatt being an exception). This is typically the range you should expect with little to no research before booking an award stay.

With that being said, it's not difficult to get as much as 1 cent or more per point with most of these hotel loyalty programs. It really comes down to the bar that you said and how much you're willing to redeem your points for.

Check out our point valuations for each hotel listed below based on available redemption options. You can click on any of the articles to calculate the cash value of any amount of hotel rewards points as well as get more details on each redemption.

Hilton Points Value

Hilton Honors Points are worth about 0.5 cents each on average. This means that 10,000 points are equal to about $50 in value.

Hilton has one of the lowest average point values, but it's very easy to earn tens of thousands of Hilton Honors points. Hilton's own credit cards can earn you as much as 34 points per $1 spent at Hilton Hotels and then on top of that you have consistent promotions that can net you even more points.

So while their value may be low, Hilton Honors points can be just as valuable as other hotel rewards programs.

Hyatt Points have an average value of 1.8 cents each, but it takes very (and I mean very) little effort to get 2 cents or more. 10,000 Hyatt points are roughly worth $180 to $220.

What makes Hyatt even better is that they are a direct transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards which means you can earn 1 to 5 points per $1 spent across popular categories such as dining and travel. At a value of 2 cents or more, you're looking at up to a 10% return on your spend which is amazing.

Accor Points are worth 2p per point when redeemed towards stays at Accor properties. This means that 10,000 points would be worth €200.

Accor does not have any co-branded credit cards for any region and they don't have that many properties in the United States. This makes it difficult to build points in the program.

Best Western Points Value

You can get as much as 1 cent per point (or more) with a little bit of research (and a calculator) when searching properties. You'll find that the best redemption values are not in the United States but at Choice's best properties which are in Europe.
