Vienna is a great place to be during the Christmas Markets. If you are thinking of visiting and trying to plan your stay in advance, I’ve recently posted three hotel reviews which all offer outstanding redemption value.

1. Hotel imperial Vienna. To see my review click here.

Selecting random dates of December 5-7, 2014 the basic Classic Room at this hotel is at 419 EUR using the best available rate.

To redeem either 25,000 Starpoints or 10,000 plus $180 you’re getting a great deal. Plus, all three times I’ve been at this property as an SPG Platinum, I’ve been given a complimentary upgrade to the Elisabeth Suite which goes for 769 EUR per night that weekend.
