Free status with Leading Hotels of the World (LHW)
I admit it. I’m more of a chain kind of guy.
Why? I know exactly what I’m entitled to with various programs. I love SPG for its guaranteed 4pm checkout, for example. And I like limiting my points bank to few enough programs to accrue meaningful balances.
But sometimes you want to indulge in a luxury boutique hotel or you’re somewhere in, perhaps, rural Europe where your chain selection is limited. You may well find yourself looking at one of the luxury hotels that is affiliated with Leading Hotels of the World (aka LHW).
You can buy Leader’s Club status for $150 any time you want (or their Unlimited status for $1,200!).
But for a limited time (and I define limited as until too many people do this deal and the deal dies) the Biltmore Hotel in NYC will gift you your first year of Leaders Club status. To see what you’ll get, check out the Leaders Club benefits page.
Here’s a list of LHW hotels. I’m crushing on a few in France and Spain right now…
You can also get 10% off rates by signing up for their email newsletter.
