Which Hotel Program Has The Most Rewarding Promotions?

Hotel Quarterly Promotions

Nick and Greg have recently been looking at which hotel loyalty schemes offer the best return on paid stays (see here and here). Their analysis has focused on the (somewhat) constant – how many base points you earn for stays, how many bonus points you’ll earn with status and how many points you’ll earn with a co-branded hotel credit card. There’s another factor that can greatly influence the number of points you’ll earn on a…

Here’s A List Of All The 10,000 Point Hilton Properties In The US

Map of Hilton Honors 10,000 Point Properties In The US

When the Hilton Honors program changed in February 2017, one of the most notable changes was that they did away with categories and moved to (somewhat) dynamic pricing. Prior to that, it had been fairly easy to find out which properties fell under which category, even though the category listings were spread over multiple pages and the interface was ugly. The February 2017 changes eliminated that functionality. As Hilton no longer has categories, there’s no…

The Westin Resort & Spa, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada

Last week, Nick and I presented our different takes on which hotel chain (Hyatt, Hilton, or Marriott) was most rewarding (here and here).  We looked at how much you’d have to stay at those hotels in order to earn free nights.

Greg’s take: Which hotel program (Hyatt vs Hilton vs Marriott) is the most rewarding?

Yesterday Nick published a thoughtful post: Which hotel program (Hyatt vs Hilton vs Marriott) is the most rewarding?  His answer was that they’re about the same: If starting from scratch (elite-wise), you need to spend about 7 nights in average priced hotels to earn a free bottom-category night, and about 42 nights in average priced hotels to earn a free top-tier night.  That’s an interesting answer, but “unfortunately, no one knows what the question is.*” …

Which hotel program is the most rewarding? Hyatt vs Hilton vs Marriott

With “new” versions of both Marriott Rewards and Hilton Honors rolling out this year, somewhat following in the footsteps of last year’s World of Hyatt launch, you might find yourself wondering this: moving forward, which hotel loyalty program is the most rewarding? I found that question wasn’t easy to answer, and it only developed more layers as I delved into it. In the end, I think beauty is in the eye of the beholder —…
