3rd party hotel reservations
Staying in hotels about 180 days a year, I would like to know if any hotel loyalty programs acknowledges stays booked through 3rd party travel agencies like Expedia?
I am in IHG, Marriott Rewards, Radisson, Hilton and more, but especially the latter won’t even let my stays show (with zero points), nor let my $ spent count.
You’re going to have to book direct or thru a valid partner where your rate is eligible for elite credits. I dont know of any of the hotel programs that will give you credits for stays books thru third party travel agencies.
