Top 10+ Hotel Credit Card Offers

This page contains the best publicly available credit card offers. With some of the offers shown below, I’ll earn a commission if you click through and are approved for the card. That said, if a better public offer is available, I always show the better offer even if it means no commissions for me. For additional details, see our Advertiser Disclosure. Advertiser partners include American Express, Barclays, Capital One, and CardRatings.com

Below you will find hotel credit card offers sorted from best to worst based on an estimate of first year value.

Calculations

First year values are calculated as: estimated first year value minus estimated first year costs.  First year value includes signup bonus points, free nights, and statement credits.  First year costs include the first year annual fee and the opportunity cost of meeting minimum spend requirements.

Full details of how first year value is calculated can be found here: Credit card signup bonus estimation details.

Thanks so much for putting this – and the airline one – together. It’s really helpful for my next AOR since I’ve been away from it for a while. Will definitely support you. Thanks.

The Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve application page at https://www.citi.com/credit-cards/credit-card-details/citi.action?ID=hilton-hhonors-reserve-card does not have the usual language limiting the 2 weekend night bonus to prior card holders. However, that language does appear on the application page for the Citi Hilton HHonors card (75k points): “not available if you have had a Citi® Hilton HHonorsTM Visa Signature® Card account that was opened or closed in the past 24 months” Does anyone know if they really are honoring the 2 weekend night bonus to prior HHonors Reserve card holders who opened or closed it within 24 or 18 months?

After signing into to my Marriott rewards account, I received a targeted banner for the Marriott business version of the card for 100,000 Marriott points after $5k in spend over the first 3 months. Haven’t seen this offer posted anywhere else yet and thought I would give others a heads up.
