Summary

A total of 124 hotel and resort properties are affected by the changes in point redemption at which 55 of them will increase by at least one category; while 69 of them will decrease by at least one category.

The point redemption changes will be effective as of Thursday, March 1, 2018 — so if you intend on redeeming points at a hotel or resort property at which an increase will occur, do so prior to that date for the hotel and resort properties whose point redemption values will increase; and after that date for the hotel and resort properties whose point redemption values will decrease.

I intend to further format this list; so please return to this article for additional information — and thank you for your patience.

  1. Carl P says:

    You’re “difference in points” is really the new point requirement.

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      Actually, Carl P, what happened was I was originally going to keep the lists as they were from Club Carlson — other than adding the red and green colors — when I first posted the article…

      …until after I posted the article, I decided — as a convenience to readers of The Gate — to separate the hotel and resort property lists by country instead of region; and list the point differences instead of the new point requirement. You caught the article while I was implementing those changes, which took time.

      The lists are basically complete now…
