  1. I have rarely stayed at a Choice hotel and have never used points. When I read the terms and conditions it states that unless you have some elite status that reservations can be made no more than 30 days in advance with points. This seems like a major drawback if you are trying to secure a room in a popular destination at a peak time. Do you have experience with this anyone?

  2. This won’t answer your question (sorry) but I can say that Choice is good because there are so many of them at least where we tend to travel, the hotels are usually reasonable as well. If you have the Choice credit card you can reserve earlier than 30 days I think (I currently don’t have the choice credit card but I will soon apply and get back to them since they have served me very well, and allow me to gift family members with free stays as well.

  3. @Fathiss, yeah that is a major drawback to choice hotels.. if you wan to book a room earlier than 30 days, you would need status with them and you can earn that by getting their credit card. That gets you Gold status but i was able to book 50days ahead.. but I wanted the Comfort Inn & Suites at Time Square and had my points all ready, and booked as soon as I could and got 2 rooms for Sat night stay.. so if you are diligent early enough I think you can find and book rooms on points

  4. While Choice points can be very helpful and useful in certain circumstances, it’s important to remember that all points earned or purchased in the program expire ~ 2 years later. They’re lost if not used!
