Over 160 hotel brands in 9 major hotel loyalty programs

There were 134 hotel brands in nine major hotel loyalty programs when I compiled a list 21 months ago in February 2018. Today I compiled a new list to find more than 160 different hotel brand names, hotel chain parterships and vacation rentals in these same nine hotel loyalty programs.

That amounts to about a 20% increase in hotel brand names associated with nine major global hotel chains. Altogether, points from these 9 hotel loyalty programs can buy reward nights at more than 60,000 hotels and vacation properties globally.
