Wyndham has an interesting award chart in that there essentially is NO award chart. Back in June of 2015 , they made every hotel cost a fixed 15,000 points. So any crappy Days Inn or Super 8 costs as much as their fanciest hotels in New York City or in Hawaii, including two-bedroom condos!

Take Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa Valley as an example. A Saturday night there can be extremely expensive, ranging from $300 to $500 a night.
You’re buying 15,000 points with today’s deal, so essentially you’re buying enough to stay one night at any hotel. There ARE definitely Wyndham hotels that run for upwards of $300 or $400, so in that regard today’s deal could be a “good deal”. But unless there’s a specific Wyndham hotel in a specific place that you want to stay at, it’s almost always going to be possible to get a stay at a comparable hotel for much cheaper than $175.
I really don’t know much about Wyndham Rewards. I don’t tend to stay at their hotels and I am not even a member of their program. Perhaps readers who know the program can share their experience.
