It’s an honor.

And we couldn’t have done it without your votes and your independent spirit.

The top 10 winners in the category Best Hotel Loyalty Program are as follows:

  1. Choice Privileges
  2. Wyndham Rewards

  4. Best Western Rewards
  5. Stash Hotel Rewards

A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial 20 nominees. The top 10 winners were determined by popular vote. Experts Brad Cohen (Thirsty Explorer), Matthew Klint (Live and Let’s Fly) and Sean McQuay (NerdWallet) were chosen based on their expertise of reward travel.

Thank you for voting! And as always, thank you for traveling less ordinary!

  1. I can’t agree more. Stash is great Very user friendly. The only problem is Stash is a virtual company and you can’t speak with someone on the phone. But if you do have have problem it does get squared away.

    1. Hi Ron, Thank you so much for your kind words! You’re right, it used to be that Stash support was available primarily through email channels, however we have added a much more robust phone service to assist our members with account inquiries, reservations, etc. at 866.229.1204. The Concierge is live Mon-Fri 5am-7pm PST and weekends 7am-5pm PST. Please leave a message if no one is available to take your call—we’ll return it within one business day. We’re so glad that we can offer this additional service for Stash members who prefer to speak to someone over the phone!

  2. If the folks at the Empress Hotel Lajolla are an example then I am very glad we joined. Sean and Ryan could not have been more welcoming and more helpful. From having our rooms ready to helping with detailed maps of the area and suggesting a super evening at the hotel’s fine restaurant.
    We could not ask for a better place to stay and look forward to visiting other properties in the chain as well!
