About these ratings


The Wyndham Rewards program awards points that can be redeemed for free hotel stays, Amtrak Guest Rewards points, airline tickets, car rentals and gift cards. You can earn points every time you stay at a participating Wyndham or Wyndham-affiliated hotel. You'll also accumulate points through car, air and train travel with Wyndham's partners and on everyday purchases made with your Wyndham Rewards Visa credit card.

Earning Points

As a member of the Wyndham Rewards program, you will accrue points through qualified stays (full-priced rooms booked directly through Wyndham) at hotels within Wyndham's extensive network. Baymont Inns and Suites, Days Inn, Howard Johnson, Knights Inn, Microtel by Wyndham, Ramada, Super 8, Travelodge and Wingate by Wyndham all award 10 points or two airline miles for every dollar spent toward room costs. If you book a room at a Wyndham hotel or resort, you can earn 10 points per dollar spent or 500 airline miles per stay. If you book a stay at Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham, you'll accrue five points per dollar spent toward your room rate or 500 airline miles per stay. If you stay at a Dream Hotels or NIGHT property, you can earn 10 points per dollar spent or 500 airline miles per stay. Lastly, if you book a stay at TRYP by Wyndham, you can accrue 10 points per dollar used to cover your room rate or 500 miles per stay. You can also earn between 50 and 500 points through qualified car rentals (non-discounted rentals made directly through partner car companies, such as Avis and Budget). Points can also be earned by using your Wyndham Rewards Visa Card to pay for everyday purchases. You'll also be rewarded for using partner services like FTD.com, LifeLock, Energy Plus and SynapseConnect. Should you need additional rewards points, you can purchase them through Points.com.

Using Points

Wyndham Rewards points can be used for free hotel stays at participating Wyndham properties. The number of points needed to cover a free night's stay varies by hotel tier. A free night in a hotel assigned to the lowest tier requires 5,500 points, while a rewards stay in the highest hotel tier requires 30,000 points. Below are the amounts of points required to redeem a free night in several popular destinations:

You can also use Wyndham points on airline tickets, Amtrak Guest Rewards points, car rentals, gift cards and other merchandise. Wyndham's partnership with various air carriers allows you to redeem accumulated points for miles. Points required for airline miles are based on individual airline rewards programs. You may also redeem points for merchandise, magazines and gift cards. You may also opt to donate your points to charity.
