Wyndham Rewards Tier Changes

Wyndham has announced today that it will move some of its hotels into different redemption tiers as part of the annual hotel review process. The majority of the hotels that are moving, are shifting down to either the 7,500 or 15,000 point tier. These Wyndham Rewards tier changes are going into effect on February 11, 2020.

Here are some of the most important details of the announcement:

  • Most of the 9,200+ hotels (91%) will not change tiers and of those that will, the vast majority, just under 500 hotels, will move down.
  • 300 hotels will be moving up to the 15,000 or 30,000 point tier, the majority of which will move to the 15,000 point tier. (Just over 80 hotels are moving to the 30,000 tier.)
  • Members who book prior to February 11 will automatically have reservations adjusted in their favor with no action required on their part.
    • e.g. if a member books a hotel that drops to a lower tier, they’ll have the difference in points returned to their account; if a member books a hotel that moves to a higher tier, the original booking, and original amount of required points, will be honored.
  • Wyndham is not sharing specifics about which hotels are moving to which tiers for now. For questions and assistance with upcoming reservations, reach at WyndhamRewards.com or 866-996-7937.

Conclusion

Judging by the overall numbers, it looks like a positive development. But I would guess that hotels that offered great redemption values will go up in price. And, overpriced hotels are likely going down.

Would have been nice if they released a list of these changes, instead of just total numbers. I guess we’ll have to wait until February 11th to see the effects of these Wyndham Rewards tier changes.

  1. At least they are auto-adjusting fairly, based on a prior res (unlike the other majors). Used to be one of my fave programs before DOUBLING points at nicest props. Was wondering the effects on redemptions, maybe partly the reason for readjustments now?

    Wyndham is adding some very nice Grands in the Caribbean & Asia, most set to open this yr, my guess as to at least some of the adjustments.
