Hotels.com vs other hotel award programs.
I use Hotels.com because of the flexibility based upon travel offerings and the price of hotel rooms verses the point structure of most hotel rewards programs. Are Hotels.com awards comparable to what is offered by hotel award programs? Better, worse or same?
I don’t think it’s better or worse, just different. You have to figure out what works for you.

Thanks. Yes, it’s subjective but in the back of my mind, I’m always thinking I may be missing something. Just wondering if someone has crunched the numbers against the major hotel programs and Hotels.com.
You might luck out and find someone who matches your profile exactly but you really need to do the math for yourself. The thing is that hotel programs are not monolithic. It matters what level of hotels you usually stay at, what types of properties you want to redeem for, how much you travel in a given year, how much you value the perks that come with status in hotel programs, how many cheaper points you are able to earn via credit cards, how much you value flexibility etc etc. As you can see a lot of these are subjective issues that no one can answer for you.
