My family recently got back from our trip to Norway where we stayed at a couple of awesome Clarion Collection hotels including Hotel Bastion and Hotel Folketeateret in Oslo. These hotels, which are part of the Choice Hotels, are easily some of the best in the country. They include breakfast, dinner, and an afternoon snack, which can be a real game changer for families given how expensive Norway is.
The best part is that they can be booked on points.
Back here in the U.S., Choice Hotels don’t get a lot of attention. In fact, they are often scoffed at and I must admit that their brands like Comfort Inn, Quality Inn, Rodeway Inn, and just about every other Inn (except those with a red roof) aren’t all that exciting. On the other hand, they are sort of everywhere, so if you’re taking a road trip and want to earn some points, a Choice hotel might be the only option.
