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).

Manufacturing free nights (Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott)

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.

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 —…
