Four Seasons doesn’t have a dedicated loyalty program in the same way that Marriott, Hilton, IHG, and Hyatt do. Ultimately, the brand’s best selling point is the Four Seasons experience, which is clearly enough to keep droves of travelers swarming to stay at their properties.
There’s no such thing as Four Seasons points or elite status tiers. But it’s still possible to enjoy elite-like benefits on Four Seasons stays, made possible by Four Seasons Preferred Partner.
Four Seasons Preferred Partner is an invitation-only program for travel agencies to offer travelers who book through them lots of perks and amenities.
In this guide, we’ll show you what to expect from Four Seasons Preferred Partner bookings, as well as how you can maximize these bookings for the best benefits and experiences possible.
Lastly, we’ll walk you through our favorite properties that are known to have exclusive offers for even more value.
Four Seasons Preferred Partner bookings can be made at any Four Seasons property.
This is in stark contrast with other programs like Marriott STARS, Hilton Impresario, and Hyatt Privé, which only offer enhanced perks to specific brands like St. Regis, The Ritz-Carlton, and Park Hyatt.
The benefits you receive when booking through a Four Seasons Preferred Partner will vary from property to property.
However, most of the benefits are consistent:
For example, the Four Seasons Hotel Beijing offers guaranteed late checkout at 4 p.m., while the Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff, Johannesburg offers early check-in and late checkout (subject to availability).Hot Tip:
You can reach out to UP’s very own Leigh Rowan at firstname.lastname@example.org who can help book your upcoming Four Seasons trip, and get access to extra perks (room upgrades, $100 credit, complimentary daily breakfast and more)
One of the most popular ways to book Four Seasons stays is through American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts, which conveys these perks:
The main benefit of Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts is that these perks can be accessed by anybody who holds a Platinum-tiered card or higher, including The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, and the Centurion® Card from American Express.
Keep in mind that you will often see price increases relative to the best available rate that Four Seasons offers when booking direct.
The biggest discrepancy in the breakfast benefit is that Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts only offers daily breakfast for 2 people, while Four Seasons Preferred Partner offers daily breakfast for 2 people per bedroom.
If you’re booking a multi-room suite or villa, you’ll have more people covered under Four Seasons Preferred Partner’s breakfast benefit.
The other benefit of Four Seasons Preferred Partner is that your complimentary breakfast extends to in-room dining, in addition to the hotel’s restaurant, so room service is included.
Four Seasons Preferred Partner upgrades are prioritized higher than those through Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts, so your upgrade chances are higher.
The main drawback of Four Seasons Preferred Partner bookings relative to Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts is that early check-in and late checkout are not standard benefits.
Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts offers guaranteed late checkout and early check-in (subject to availability).
Lastly, stays through Four Seasons Preferred Partner are generally more personalized because you’re making your booking through an agent that has a connection to the hotel you’re staying at.
With Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts, eligible cardholders have the ability to get benefits without going through a special travel agent.
You can’t book a Four Seasons Preferred Partner rate by yourself — you need to contact a travel advisor or agent that is a Four Seasons Preferred Partner.
Let’s take a look at all of the terms and conditions of Four Seasons Preferred Partner:
There is no minimum stay requirement, so you can get Four Seasons Preferred Partner benefits on 1-night or 1-month stays!
In general, you will pay the same as the publicly available rate on the Four Seasons website!
This is great news because almost all rates available directly with Four Seasons are eligible for Four Seasons Preferred Partner amenities.
In contrast, some programs require you to book the standard flexible rate, which may be hundreds of dollars per night more than the cheapest direct rate.
It depends. In some cases, Four Seasons Preferred Partners can help you get these benefits honored on your reservation, especially if the booking was made directly on the Four Seasons website.
It never hurts to reach out!
Unlike Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts, you don’t need to make a booking with a specific card to get Four Seasons Preferred Partner benefits.
Not all Four Seasons Preferred Partner offers are created equal. Some properties promote exclusive offers specifically to Four Seasons Preferred Partners that can sweeten the deals.
At a high level, these typically consist of guaranteed upgrades, extra experiences, complimentary ground transfers, and extra resort credits.
Lastly, these offers can change from time to time, so be sure to reach out to your travel advisor to inquire about the state of these offers.

Four Seasons is one of the most well-known luxury hotel brands in the world. The consistency, service, and amenities are among the reasons why well-heeled travelers never even consider other hotels.
What isn’t well-known, however, are the elite-like benefits through Four Seasons Preferred Partner. Breakfast, room upgrades, and property credits are among the benefits available.
If you book through a Four Seasons Preferred Partner travel agent, you might even get access to exclusive offers that nobody else has access to!
Now you have the complete guide on how to maximize value at Four Seasons through Four Seasons Preferred Partner.
The information regarding the Centurion® Card from American Express was independently collected by Upgraded Points and was not provided nor reviewed by the issuer.
A Four Seasons Preferred Partner is a travel agent or agency that has been exclusively invited to offer premium benefits and perks to clients.
Four Seasons competitors are generally luxury hotels and resorts like Park Hyatt, The Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, Mandarin Oriental, Conrad, and Waldorf Astoria.
You can use Amex points for Four Seasons stays, but you won’t get that much value out of your points. You’ll get 1 cent per point of value when booking an Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts stay at Four Seasons properties.
Four Seasons hotels are so expensive because they offer high-end luxury and incredible consistency, regardless of which property you stay in. In practice, it’s very difficult to achieve this consistency, which is why affluent travelers love Four Seasons.
