OK, everyone has their own definition of “value”. I get it. That means many of you may disagree with what I’m about to say. I’m cool with that. I’m working on a project and stumbled across a hotel redemption that made me do a double-take.
The Most Valuable Hotel Redemption Ever?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? Well, this redemption I found is for a Wyndham hotel. Okay, before you go running away, Wyndham does have some nice properties. I’ve never stayed in any of their nice hotels, but I’ve heard good things here and there. Given, I don’t spend a lot of time focused on Wyndham Rewards. They have an odd loyalty program where all hotels are priced exactly the same for reward nights. 15,000 points will get you a night at any Wyndham property, from the cheapest to the most expensive.
If you haven’t run away because I’m talking about Wyndham, maybe you will when I tell you this redemption is down in the Disney World area. You guys know how I feel about Disney. Why else would I walk 18 miles in one day to try to ride every ride? At any rate, if you haven’t run away screaming, I found a sick value at one of the Orlando-area Wyndham properties.
Since I don’t follow Wyndham Rewards closely, I turned to The Points Guy for the relative value of a Wyndham Rewards point. Brian says they’re worth 1.2 cents each. That seems high to me, but I have very little frame of reference.
There are plenty of hotel rooms available through the Wyndham program in Orlando. Some of the properties look quite spartan. Others look okay, not great. They’re all available for 15,000 points a night. Then, there’s Magic Village. First, I saw a 3-bedroom condo and thought that was impressive.
Then, I saw a 4-bedroom one that sleeps up to 8 people easily.
Again, I’ve never stayed at Magic Village. But, the pictures look pretty darn nice.
The Final Two Pennies
So, pure value junkies will note that the room prices for Magic Village aren’t that high. You’re “only” getting a bit more than 2 cents in value out of that 4-bedroom. But, it is also a room big enough for 8 people. Having to find hotel rooms for that many people would normally get pretty pricey.
Look, maybe these pictures frame Magic Village in a very favorable light, and the place is a dump. I don’t think so, but I also don’t have a stay planned anytime soon. I’m just pretty impressed you can get a 4-bedroom villa for 15,000 points with Wyndham Rewards.
