Capital One is growing its travel portfolio, and this time, it’s open to a suite of new cardholders.
Earlier this year, Capital One launched the Premier Collection, a luxury hotel program exclusively for Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card holders. And now, Capital One is introducing a complementary offering to the Premier Collection: the Lifestyle Collection.
This new program focuses on boutique, premium hotels that Capital One says “offer trendy, modern design and access to great dining, arts, and culture.” It’s also open to more cardholders than before, including the bread and butter Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card.
Here’s take a closer look at the Lifestyle Collection from Capital One Travel.
Capital One’s Premier Collection offering provides elite-like benefits such as daily breakfast for 2, a $100 “experience” credit, and room upgrades when available. It’s the issuer’s take on American Express’s Fine Hotels + Resorts and Chase’s Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection.
While not quite as luxury-oriented, the new Lifestyle Collection is a curated array of premium, independent hotels. For eligible cardholders who book, perks will include the following:
When it launches later this year, the new Lifestyle Collection hotels (bookable only through Capital One Travel) will be offered on the following cards:
For those with the Capital One Venture X card, you’ll earn 10x miles per dollar when booking. Meanwhile, those who hold the Capital One Venture card, Capital One Spark Miles card, or Capital One Spark Miles Select card will earn 5x miles per dollar.
To maximize flexibility for eligible cardholders, there is no program-wide minimum-stay requirement. This is a clear differentiator from Amex’s competing program, The Hotel Collection, which requires a 2-night minimum stay.
In addition, those who hold the Capital One Venture X card can use their $300 annual credit for bookings made on Capital One Travel towards Lifestyle Collection stays.
Here’s a sampling of some of the hotels that will be part of the Lifestyle Collection:
From more well-known independent brands like Virgin Hotels, The Standard, and Design Hotels to smaller boutique properties like The Ludlow in New York City, Capital One’s new Lifestyle Collection will appeal to those looking for an upscale stay that’s far from cookie-cutter.
Capital One cardholders will be able to access the Lifestyle Collection later this year, exclusively through the Capital One Travel platform.
