Quick Thoughts

There’s 29 eligible hotels in this latest list of Sweet Spot Rewards; 24 are in the US, three are in Canada and the other two are in France. Almost a dozen of the properties are either Cambria or Ascend which are Choice’s nicer choices, so this isn’t just a bunch of roadside Quality Inns.

The Quality Hotel La Marebaudiere-Vannes in France caught my eye seeing as it’s only 10,000 points. Despite growing up in the UK and visiting France several times, I’d never heard of Vannes. However, having taken a quick look at the town on Google Street View, it looks like an incredibly cute place to visit, with the hotel being within walking distance of downtown and only a couple of miles from the beach.

The Elevate Hotel At Sierra Blanca Ruidoso (an Ascend Hotel Collection property) in New Mexico is another hotel that caught my eye as New Mexico has been my favorite state we’ve visited on our 50 state road trip so far (we’re at state 44 now, so there’s not many states left that could dislodge it). Ruidoso is only an hour or so away from White Sands National Park which is one of the most fascinating National Parks we’ve visited, not to mention that you (and your pups if you like seeing as it’s dog-friendly) can go sledding down the sand dunes.

There are several other noteworthy properties due to the types of rooms/suites you can book with points:

  • Columbia River Hotel, Ascend Hotel Collection property in Dalles, OR has two bedroom suites bookable for only 16,000 points
  • Inn At I’On, Ascend Hotel Collection in Mount Pleasant, SC (just outside of Charleston) has suites available that include a full kitchen for 25,000 points per night
  • Cambria Hotel Burbank Airport has 1 bedroom suites for 20,000 points per night
  • Country Inn & Suites By Radisson, Shoreview, MN has a suite with a kitchenette for 12,000 points per night
  • Cambria Hotel Portland Downtown Old Port, ME has 1 bedroom suites for 25,000 points per night

Before rushing to book award nights though, be sure to check the cash pricing because even with the discounted award pricing it might not offer great value versus the regular room rate.

Don’t forget that you can transfer Citi ThankYou and Wells Fargo transferable points to Choice on a 1:2 basis.

Is it the people, food and landscape in New Mexico that make it your favorite so far? Or is it something else in particular people might not know about the state?


I was wondering the same thing. I spent 3 nights in Albuquerque and didn’t have that same reaction. I did enjoy the ghost walking tour in downtown ABQ, but maybe the beauty of NM lies outside ABQ.


New Mexico landscape is an acquired taste. Try the Hyatt Tamaya resort located outside on Albuquerque. I do like the food.


Our family like the unique natural landscapes of NM very much. The view on the road trip is amazing and local food around Santa Fe is amazing. When we were at the White Sands NP 7 years ago, my daughter (Around 5) loved it so much and we are still talking about to go back there right now. Esp. since Stephen just mentioned that White Sands NP is dog friendly, I am sure that our puppy will definitely love it too.


The answer is: yes. Also, one of the weirdest states to drive through.

Sandia Peak is magical.
