Top Hotel Reward Programs


The U.S. News & World Travel Report recently released the Top Hotel Reward Programs. Based on the list we could easily see they’ve ranked the reward programs according to the amount of benefits the members receive. HoteliersConnect compared this list to J.D. Power’s 2016 Loyalty/Rewards Program Satisfaction Report and we saw a significant difference.

HoteliersConnect has come to the conclusion that Marriott Rewards has the best benefits for members and is among the most popular. Appearing on both lists within the Top #3, Marriott Rewards has a 5 Star rating from J.D. Power and has 31 million members worldwide. Marriott International Inc., launched it’s frequent guest program on November 20th, 1983. It was called Marriott’s Honored Guest and included only Marriott Hotels and Resorts. On May 6, 1997, Marriott International created Marriott Rewards, the world’s first multi-brand frequent guest program.
