My vote would be, in this order:

Park Tokyo
Kauai
Park Vendome-Paris
HR Madeleine-Paris
Park Chicago

I'm not sure how Maui, the Stanhope NY, or the Park Sydney might fall into this list.

I think kv99s list is pretty acurate. The only change I would make is to replace the Park Chicago with Scottsdale, only because you can often get Chicago for around $300, but Scottsdale will normally set you back around $375.

I think the Park Hyatt Vendôme probably rates near the top at ~$440/night.

I think Park Tokyo is often 55,000Yen or so per night, and Kauai is often in the $550-600 range.

Park Hyatt Vendome actually is more like $600 a night - at least for our dates - Feb 14-17...we felt like we got reallygood mileage out of our faster free nights!

Park Hyatt Carmel can fluctuate from $199 to $600. Recently, I can't find anything lower than $495.

I think Park Tokyo, Kauai, and Vendome are clearly the top of the heap--after that it gets a little less clear.

Hell even the dumpy Hyatt Princeton charges $350 during graduation.

You certainly did get good mileage on your FFNs -- anyone who manages to get FFNs at any of the above hotels is doing REALLY well. I got 4 in Kauai last spring and 6 at the Park Tokyo in the summer. Boy did I feel good.

This year, I've had so many that I've had to "dump" them on places like Bangkok and Berlin.

Hey IKinSeattle: didn't you just get back from the Grand Hong Kong?

Although I have to object that Berlin and BKK aren't dumps!

Yep. Just got back from my FFN run with stays at Honolulu, GH Singapore and GH Hong Kong. That was my first time at the GH Hong Kong, and I must say the Grand Club there is nothing less than amazing.

Edit: I’d like to throw in what I would consider the best ‘Bang For Your Buck’ properties.
US: Coconut Point
International: GH Bali

I wish I had more of these Gourmet Club vouchers for the rate of 140,- euro per night for the GH Berlin.


Can anyone tell already whether the USD 280,- per night for the new PH Moscow is worth the money or to use for FFN ?

Rates at many resorts are very seasonal. You could get HR Scottsdate for less than $200 during July/August. On the other hand, PH Beaver Creek is $450+ during the ski season.

OK, I haven't been to Berlin yet, so wouldn't know (next weekend!), but that was definitely poorly-expressed sarcasm! The Erawan is one of my favorite Hyatts and favorite hotels out there.

Just not quite the bang-for-the-FFN-buck that Park Tokyo is.

IK -- I'm so jealous... the Grand Club in Hong Kong is so beautiful and hopefully they gave you a room with that view as well. Not sure if you ran into Ida who works there, she's one of the best!!
