IHG is an option. The signup bonus might get you 6 nights at a rural, low-cost Holiday Inn, 2-3 nights in a mid-tier place, or 1 (maybe, maybe 2) nights at a nicer InterContinental hotel.
They have a lot of properties, but may not have one where you want to go. Also, it's not a great time to apply since they aren't currently offering their best signup bonus.
Maybe combine an Amtrak train with 3 nights in a mid-cost city's Holiday Inn where you can walk or take mass transit? It's not luxury, but you could probably do it with the rewards from IHG and Arrival, with another $300 in costs (food, sightseeing, mass transit, and Amtrak fare over the $200 you'd get from Arrival).
