Hotel Hustle Is a Better Way to Search for Hotel Award Nights!

I’ve written about using Award Mapper to search for award nights at different chain hotels all at the same time.  It’s a great time-saver!

But now there’s a smarter award night search tool.

Hotel Hustle will show you:

  • Chain hotels in a specified city (map or list view)
  • Number of points required for an award night
  • Available award rooms for specific dates
  • Paid cost of the room (for comparison)
  • Value (cents per point and if it’s a good deal overall)

And if an award night isn’t available, you can set up alerts.  If the room you want becomes available with points, Hotel Hustle will email you to let you know!
