Each hotel loyalty program is different in its own ways, and each has pros and cons. If you want to be an expert hotel traveler, then you need to collect lots of points while understanding your benefits inside and out.

What does elite status offer in each program? Who are the partners of each hotel chain? Do I have to use my points for hotel stays, or can I use them in other ways?

You’ll find the answers to these questions (and a whole lot more) in our detailed guides!
