It has been rumored for a while now that Priority Club will replace PointBreaks (which offered select hotels for 5,000 points per night) with last minute reward nights, which would be quite a devaluation. While Priority Club still has a “live” PointBreaks list, they have also now introduced their first last minute rewards nights list.
The first list has 127 hotels on it, all of which are in the US. The offer only applies for stays this coming weekend, which makes it of limited use. Many (most?) redeem their hotel points for destinations they need to fly to, so while there might be a discounted hotel, that’s only of limited use when flights are expensive. Beyond that, most of the hotels on the list don’t look like places I’d want to book a flight just to visit… Candlewood Suites Detroit, anyone? 😉
