  1. Excellent! A good rewards program is a really powerful incentive to me, but it’s important that it has benefits that are actually useful. These benefits all sound excellent (especially the opportunity to get a complimentary stay), and with such a large portfolio of luxury hotels there seems like a lot of opportunity to participate. I’ll go get registered so I’m ready for my next trip.

  2. What a great initiative on the part of Small Luxury Hotels. I like the sound of all those benefits, especially the potential to get complimentary nights for referring friends or when it’s your birthday… nice!

  3. We love staying at the Small luxury hotels, we love that they have family friendly suites, perfect for travelling families with teenage kids that need a little more room. Love these new rewards program.

  4. Oh wow, I’ve never heard of this kind of concept before, it’s such a good idea! I struggle so much with choosing and planning destinations for holidays, and so it’s always so great to be able to put your trust in someone else that really knows what they’re doing. I love that you get the special little touches like complimentary breakfast, that really makes all the difference!!
