This page is a summary of the current hotel loyalty promotions across the major hotel chains in October 2019. The links below for each hotel loyalty program link to Loyalty Traveler articles for each program. I have a permanent hotel promotions guide page accessible from the top bar of Loyalty Traveler’s home page. That page is useful for seeing other expired promotions for each program offered over the past year and includes links to some of my articles describing major hotel loyalty program changes from the past two years. There are also links to articles on Loyalty Traveler analyzing hotel reward category changes in different programs in recent years.
