Hotel points are primarily earned by booking hotel stays directly with the hotel. Points can then be applied towards free nights, be transferred to partners similar to bank rewards points, or be used for other redemptions like room upgrade. Earning hotel points is generally easy to do thanks to the number of travel partners most hotel brands have, the ability to earn elite status, co-branded hotel credit cards, and transferring points from other reward programs to your hotel loyalty account.

Hotel Rewards Programs

There are plenty of hotel brands and programs around the world. This gives a solid amount of options to choose from. While I don't have all the hotel brands in the world (just yet), this site does feature most of the biggest hotel brands. As with anything on the site, feel free to let me know through social media if there's a brand, credit card, or anything else you want me to add.

You can click on any of the hotel brands listed below to get more details about the program. Most hotel pages feature details on earning, redeem, transferring points to/from the program, co-branded credit cards, and elite status. I also cover sharing and buying points if it's possible to do so in the program.

Transferring Points To/From Hotel Programs

The majority of hotels allow you to transfer points to and from their loyalty program from other reward programs. Points are usually transferred to hotel points from bank rewards and (very rarely) airline frequent flyer programs while hotel reward points can usually be transferred to airline, rail, and other partners.

You can click on any of the links below to calculate the transfer of points between hotel rewards programs. Most of the calculators will go into detail on transfer partners, but there are a few that only feature calculators. You can use these calculators to find alternative ways to earn and redeem points in your favorite hotel programs.

Hotel Credit Cards

Hotel credit cards are important for those looking to maximize their hotel points. This is because hotel credit cards are usually the best choice when it comes to using the card at it's own hotel brands. Hotel credit cards are also important for those looking for annual free nights, complimentary elite status, and other small perks that can be beneficial. If you're loyal to any specific brand and care about earning points with that brand, I recommend picking up their hotel credit card.

Compare Hilton Credit Cards

You can click any of the hotel credit cards below to calculate how many points you can earn based on your monthly/yearly spend and elite status. Each calculator will also calculate the cash value of the hotel credit card based on spend, how much each card benefit is worth to you, and the annual fee. You can then compare the results side by side any rewards card featured on the website. Any spend you enter into a credit card calculator will carry over to all credit card calculators on the website.
