Highlighting hotel rewards programs for everyone: Haute Travel

I recently heard Priority Club ® Rewards was upgrading a lot of their services, and I have to say I was pretty impressed.  As a person who loves to maximize my travel, rewards programs are a key part of my travel planning.  Here are some great rewards programs everyone should look into for a great vacation:

  1. Priority Club ® Rewards – The largest reward program in the world is now even better, with perks like free internet for all members in 2014, and reward nights which count toward elite status.  If you travel globally, you will always find a Holiday Inn around, and usually they are pretty swanky around the world. 
  2. Starwood Preferred Guest ® – The SPG program is one of the best, with no blackout dates, and cross-over rewards for Delta elite members.  With some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, and “cool” brands like W and Aloft, this is a great program to join.  You can even use your points to buy experiences, such as concert and theater tickets.
  3. Tablet Plus ® – Though you have to pay $195, with this program you can experience great upgrades, free breakfast, and airport transfers at some of the best hotels in the world with Tablet.  These are especially nice for Honeymooners or those looking for extra luxury.
  4. Hilton Honors ® – With big brands like Waldorf Astoria, you can’t go wrong earning points with Hilton Honors ®.  You retain status for longer than most programs, allowing you to reap the benefits for a long time.

There are many other great reward programs out there but this is just to highlight a few which stand out.  Wishing you happy and haute travel!
