Yes, they demand high point values however, and are in my opinion, not a good use of points.

We probably also should define which Wyndham hotels you are asking about, there are a very few high end ones in the programme.

The one in St. Thomas, the Sugar Bay Resort and Spa one can book a hotel room from a low of 385,000 to a high of 581,000 points.

I was wondering mainly about trading points for stays at hotels in the wyndham family like Howard Johnson, Days Inn, Ramada, etc.

My wife and spend quite a bit of time in Tulsa, Ok due to family, and it would be nice to stay in a hotel every now and again.

Thanks in advance for your help!

There is a feature called PlusPartners which is gained with a Developer purchase and use of points for Hotel stays is one of the parts of PlusPartners.

Quote:

PlusPartners Accommodation partners offer you the opportunity to stay at a variety of hotels using your FairShare Plus points. The program is proud to feature the Wyndham family of hotel brands. To make a PlusPartners Accommodation reservation please contact a Vacation Planning Counselor at 1-800-251-8736 option 1, option 1. Our counselor will verify your account information and connect you with a travel representative who will answer all of your questions about PlusPartners Accommodation Partners and assist you in making your reservation.

The Wyndham family of hotel brands includes:

* Wyndham Hotels and Resorts
* Days Inn
* Ramada World Wide
* Wingate by Wyndham
* Super 8
* Travelodge
* Howard Johnson
* AmeriHost Inn
* Knights Inn
* Baymont Inn and Suites

End Quote.

This feature is stripped off and does not carry through on a resale purchase.

The feature can be reacquired for a price, think like for $2,400. Most would consider it not worth it.

You may want to look at the Wyndham Rewards program, formerly Triprewards, a credit card rewards plan which accumulates points toward stays in the very same hotels listed above.

You may also want to consider rent out your point and use that money to rent a hotel.
