Joe recently wrote about the tremendous value you can get with Choice Privileges Points, and he’s absolutely right – I’ve just spotted a deal that must surely be the best value hotel points redemption in Dublin.
I love Dublin, it’s a great city that is cheap and easy to get to, but hotels are often quite pricey regardless of whether you use cash or hotel points. Being able to grab a Points bargain is therefore great news!
The 4* Clarion Hotel Dublin Liffey Valley can be booked for just 6,000 Choice Points for peak Summer Holiday dates (some times of year it’s 8,000 Points).
In the current sale, you can buy 6,000 Choice Points for ~ £36.00. Regular cash rates for the same dates look to be about ~£155 (170 Euros), so by buying you Points you would save a massive 75%+!
Remember that Points bookings are flexible too, so the ‘real’ saving if you compared like with like is even higher.
One of the great quirks of Choice Privileges is that you can quite often book any available room for the same number of Points – including family rooms and even suites!
I think I’d rather pay £36 than ~£220, how about you?
Is the hotel any good?
Obviously a potential Points bargain is only really a good deal if you would actually want to stay at the hotel. The good news is that hotel looks pretty solid and gets decent reviews.
Facilities are excellent too, including a pool, steam room and sauna:
The only negative I can see is that the hotel is located about 6 miles (30 minute bus ride) from the city centre, so isn’t in the thick of the action. As a comfortable, affordable base to visit Dublin and the surrounding areas though, I think it looks great. It’s a short walk to the Liffey Valley Shopping Complex, which has a cinema and restaurants etc, so you’re not stuck in the middle of nowhere.
Being able to book a suite at a comfortable hotel for £36, must surely make the Clarion Hotel the best value hotel points redemption in Dublin (even if it is a few miles out of the city). Any other suggestions are very welcome though! – let us know in the comments.
Note that the current 30% discount on Choice Points ends tomorrow (17th August 2017).
