Great Places You Can Still Book (on Points) for New Year’s Eve

Great Places You Can Still Book (on Points) for New Year’s Eve
Caroline Lupini

Are you still looking for New Year’s Eve accommodations? Don’t worry, there is still a little bit of time to book. To make things easier for you, we’ve searched to find a few rooms that you can book with points and are still available (as of the date of this writing.) If you want to ring in the new year with a points redemption, don’t wait to snatch a room at one of these great properties!

JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach

A designer property with a superb downtown location, the JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach is the perfect place to enjoy your New Year’s Eve in Singapore. Rooms at this property for NYE are available for a points plus cash redemption, starting at 170SGD (124USD) + 50,000 Marriott Rewards Points.

These certainly aren’t the cheapest prices, but then again, New Year’s Eve in Singapore is awesome! I suggest heading up to the on-site Ebb6 or Flow18 Sky Gardens for a spectacular skyline view. Before the clock strikes midnight, get yourself a good vantage point towards Marina Bay for the best view of their dazzling fireworks show.

Holiday Inn Suva

If you would like to be one of the very first humans on Earth to experience the sensation of 2019, I suggest heading to Fiji for New Year’s Eve. Located just on the far side of the International Date Line, the Holiday Inn Suva provides a lovely waterfront escape for your holiday.

Rooms on New Year’s Eve are available as a points plus cash redemption, from 180.60FJD (85USD) + 5,000 IHG Points. You can also reduce the cash portion by paying more points. From this property, you’ll have your choice between exploring the British colonial village or heading into the rain forest to hike to some cascading waterfalls. Welcome the new year however you like, and be one of the first in the world to do it.

Conrad Bora Bora Nui

Conversely, if you are having a spectacular year and are hanging onto 2018 for dear life, hold on as long as Earthly possible. Just across the International Date Line from Fiji, French Polynesia happily lounges around in the past. For a truly spectacular and high-end New Year’s Eve, book in at the Conrad Bora Bora Nui.

Brace yourself for the redemption price, though; you might only want to consider going this deep if you’ve been stockpiling Honors Points forever and have some reason to believe that this may be the last points redemption you will ever make. A NYE booking at the Conrad Bora Bora has skyrocketed to (you ready?) a whopping 639,000 Honors points starting value. So, it’s up to you. If you really want to hang out in sunny Bora Bora while holding fast to your sweet 2018, this is likely one of the most creative (albeit outrageous) was to do so.

Aloft Miami Brickell

After that ridiculous points meltdown, let’s bring it back to the Eastern seaboard of the US where NYE really gets good. You don’t have to spend NYE in NYC to get the most out of your evening; instead, head down to Aloft Miami Brickell and celebrate the new year with Pitbull.

Mr. Worldwide might not be at this property specifically, but it’s located just a couple of blocks from US Route 1 and a short drive from the Miami Beach causeways. Best of all, rooms at this property for NYE are still just 25,000 Marriott Rewards Points. Drive over to 9th & Ocean on Miami Beach for a Fireworks display, or just head from Aloft down to Calle Ocho for a true Miami party.

Renaissance Reno Downtown

If you’re looking for convenient transportation, budget holiday points redemption, and a nonstop party, then head to the Renaissance Reno Downtown. This property isn’t too far from Reno-Tahoe International Airport or the Reno Events Center, so you’ll be in a prime spot for New Years Eve events and then afterward, you’ll be able to easily catch your flight.

Rooms at Renaissance Reno Downtown are still available for just 35,000 Marriott Rewards Points; equivalent to a Category 7 property but a total steal for NYE. This property is just across Truckee River from Harrah’s Reno as well as the Reno Arch, which will be the location of the NYE fireworks display. If you aren’t in any position to walk, definitely note that all public transportation with RTC will be free from 6PM until 2AM on New Years Eve. Get there easily, celebrate hard, and get home safely!

Holston House Nashville

If you’re looking for a different kind of party, head to Nashville instead. Historic with modern art deco twists, Holston House Nashville is a lovely downtown gem that is ideal for a NYE spent in Music City. As if their house-made Southern biscuits don’t sell the property by themselves, a NYE points redemption will only put you back 20,000 Hyatt Gold Passport Points.

That’s correct; the NYE points redemption is the same for this property as it would be on another night at its normal Category 5 price. Pop up to TENN on Top for a few cocktails at the rooftop bar, or go directly over to Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park for the whole NYE celebration. Holston House is only one mile away!

Did you score some great (or crazy) points redemptions for this New Years Eve? Tell us about them in the comments.
