There are many hotel rewards programs that are the best at offering free perks. Some
amenities include free Wi-Fi, late check out, and bar credits for rewards members. But,
most importantly, the top hotel rewards programs let you earn free nights quickly,
redeem them with ease, and enjoy yourself without worrying about fine-print restrictions.
 
Every major hotel chain has its own free loyalty rewards program, but according to
WalletHub, these hotel rewards programs are not equally rewarding for everyone. Their
rules, earning rates and point values, plus perks are all different. It also depends on
where you travel, how often you stay in hotels, and how much you’re comfortable
spending per night.
 
WalletHub compared the 12 most popular hotel rewards programs using 21 key metrics,
ranging from point values to booking blackout dates. And they did so for three different
hotel budgets.
