NH Hotels is one of those niche European hotel chains that is rarely seen in the UK (although there are two in London) but crop up quite frequently on the continent.
As well as the main NH Hotels brand, the group also includes Hesperia and nhow.
Whilst not a British Airways Executive Club partner, you CAN earn Avios points whilst staying with NH Hotels if you credit them to an Iberia Plus account. You can then move the points across to your BA or avios.com account via ‘Combine My Avios’ online.
The standard earning rate with NH Hotels is shown here at iberia.com. You earn 450 Avios per night for a 5-star, 350 per night for a 4-star and 200 Avios per night for a 2-star.
Until June 30th, you will earn triple Avios on a stay of 2 or more nights between Monday and Friday.
If you can get yourself booked into a 5-star NH Hotels property, you are looking at a fantastic result – 1,350 Avios points per night! The two London hotels are both 4-star, so you would earn 1,050 Avios per night.
Separately, it is worth noting that you can also redeem Avios points for NH Hotels. On the face of it, it looks very expensive (to put it mildly) at 37,545 Avios per night for a 5-star. This drops to 26,000 Avios per night during a ‘promotional’ period, which at present is advertised as Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in May and June. I still wouldn’t consider this a bargain.
You also need to book by telephone with the Iberia call centre in Spain, which is likely to prove a challenge for anyone who does not speak Spanish. More details on the NH / Iberia web page.
