I recently posted a LinkedIn question asking what hotel chain had the best travel programs: Marriott Rewards, HiltonHHonors, or Priority Club?
In the less than scientific tabulation of results, the votes were along these lines:
Hilton Honors: 53%
Priority Club: 5%
What I found more interesting were the comments and suggestions people made about travel programs. These included:
I simply direct all hotel programs to frequent flyer program.
Use CapitalOne Rewards
Hotels.com is great. “Wherever I stay, I get 1 free night every 10.”
Fairmont President’s Club
Sheraton Star Rewards
Look to see where the best resorts are. If you want free stays in Hawaii, go for hotel chains with hotels actually on the beach rather than across the street.
One of the most comment refrains went along the lines of this comment by Bernard Wilson.
“Best program for anyone is one you will use.”
While being a Priority Club member has helped me get wonderful service at Holiday Inns, I’ve opted for the Marriott Rewards program since their hotels are more readily available where I travel.
I’d love to hear what programs you like the most!
