Hotels where you can redeem your points for suites

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

The extremehoteldeals site has been running a series of well-researched articles on hotels which let you redeem for suites or high end rooms at standard rates.  In some cases this may be an error, whilst in other cases it is simply the hotel trying to encourage more points bookings.

Here is their Hilton list.  The key one for the UK (apart from Conrad Maldives offering water villas for the usual price of land villas) is Hilton London Tower Bridge which is offering family rooms for the standard price of 70,000 points.  These sleep four people.

Here is their Hyatt list.

Here is their IHG list.

The IHG list has two hotels of interest to UK residents:

Crowne Plaza Liverpool John Lennon Airport (photo below) – suite, with lounge access, for 20,000 points per night

Crowne Plaza Harrogate – suite for 20,000 points per night

It is worth checking the lists for any interesting offers in places you are planning to visit this year.

  1. OT: Lego City 1000 Clubcard points just started

  2. OT but hotel related – which hotel scheme is it that allows you to book reward nights without having the required number of points?

    I’ve read about it on here but before can’t remember which one it was…

    OT – I read a comment on here a week or so back saying someone thought that Avios.com were adding the option of booking one-way flights using the Lloyds voucher on the website rather than having to phone.

    I’ve been trying to do this today and have found that if you click “Use This” under your voucher and proceed to try and make a one-way booking it fails with a “Page Not Found” error. However, if you then go to the “How to spend” menu and click “Search for flights” as if doing a booking without the voucher it will proceed on the basis of using the voucher. I haven’t actually completed a booking but it looks like (via this circuitous route) you can now book one-ways online with the voucher :-).

    Incidentally I used the online chat and the agent was insistent that it is not possible to book one-ways using the voucher on the website. I asked why there was a tickbox for it and they said they’d feedback to the team. Waste of time (probably)!

    • I had this conversation with them last week! They said their IT department was still trying to sort it out. If anyone manages to make the full booking, let us know!

      • wally1976 says:

        I’m waiting on availability to (hopefully) pop up for the date I want! Dummy booking was on an alternative date.

    • I did this yesterday! (worked perfectly!)
      However I did use for quite the worst value ever LHR-AMS off peak and only saved 7,500 avios!
      But in my defense had 1 day to use the voucher before it expired!

      • wally1976 says:

        We don’t currently fly long haul so not getting the best value out of these vouchers either. Mind you, we have used a couple for Paphos which is almost the longest short haul you can get! Just difficult to find 4 x CE seats in the school hols.

  4. O/T: Does the gold card deactivate once the gold to plat upgrade goes through or can I continue to use the gold card online/offline to work towards the spending bonus? Asking as will be traveling and won’t be able to get my hands on plat card but would like to start spending asap.

  5. Points breaks can now be booked…

    • And there are some decent options. HIX Wandsworth and Hammersmith for 15,000 points – that really IS London! Plus Holiday Inn Nice!!

  6. Re Lloyds upgrade voucher. The avios.com website now seems to be allowing 2 x 1 way bookings and also from regions. Furthermore, I’ve suddenly got 12,000 extra avios and an extra voucher so it looks like their IT dept has been working overtime!

    • Actually maybe not. On the page showing available flights it’s showing a CW seat off peak is 50,000 avios so they must still be getting there…(It’s does say “2 people outbound ” at the top of the page though).
