We know you all love your hotel loyalty programs, and we always enjoy sharing ways to maximise all their benefits. We thought it would be interesting to check out the most popular properties across the globe for redeeming points! Most of us are sitting on a number of points after all the refunds, dreaming of when we will be allowed to travel. So we thought some inspiration for what to spend those points on would make a great article.
We asked our friends over at Hilton which of their properties are the top spots members choose for using points – and we must say, we can see why!
Keep an eye out for our next article which will showcase Marriot’s top picks.
