Favourite Hotel Elite Perks Listed by Loyalty Program

I was previously asked what are the best hotel elite benefits. I believe that this is a strongly personal question, because it is based on personal preferences, as well as specific travels. In other words, depending on where you want to go, you may want to take advantage of a different benefit. I would not get too caught up on very specific benefits, it is always better to remain flexible and open minded to what’s available, along with customizing to specific needs.

Hotels Attached to Canadian Airport Terminals

Location is pretty much the biggest advantage of such hotels of an airport hotel. As you know, Canada can get pretty cold in the winter. So if you happen to have a layover in a Canadian airport and don’t feel like leaving the airport (so that you don’t have to pack a winter jacket), then these airports are the most optimal for such situations. Especially if you have a layover for 10 hours or less that goes overnight when airport lounges are closed.

[HOTEL] Expiry Policies (updated February 18, 2016)

It has been a while since my last hotel expiry policies update. There have been a few changes ever since, so I thought I’d give my list a quick update. In deciding my preference for hotel loyalty programs, I give a lot of consideration to the expiry policy. I have been focusing my energy on 4 hotel rewards programs: Best Western Rewards, Hilton HHonors, IHG Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest.
