Many of the credit card offers that appear on the website are from credit card companies from which Wise Bread receives compensation. This compensation may impact how and where products appear on this site (including, for example, the order in which they appear).

Many travel rewards enthusiasts look to credit cards to earn free flights, and airline loyalty programs are happy to reward their most loyal patrons. But what about hotel stays? 

At the same time, there are many hotel credit cards that offer as much value as the airline cards, or more. Furthermore, these cards often come with excellent sign-up bonuses in the form of reward nights that are both valuable and easy to redeem.

IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card

IHG represents the world's largest hotel company with over 5,400 hotels worldwide. Their IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card offers 80,000 bonus points after spending $2,000 on purchases within the first three months of account opening. (Reward redemption starts at 10,000 points.) Earn 25 points total per dollar when you stay at an eligible IHG hotel, 2 points per dollar spent at gas stations, grocery stores, and restaurants, and 1 point per dollar spent on all other purchases. Additional benefits include a free night worldwide each year of cardmembership, and Platinum Elite status which comes with its own set of benefits like free internet, priority check in, and complimentary upgrades. The annual fee is $89.

The World Of Hyatt Credit Card

The World Of Hyatt Credit Card offers new cardholders up to 50,000 bonus points — 25,000 bonus points after you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening, and an additional 25,000 bonus points after you spend $6,000 total on purchases within the first 6 months of account opening. Considering that award nights start at 5,000 points this is an exceptional offer. The card awards up to 9x points for Hyatt purchases, 2x points per dollar at restaurants, on airline tickets purchased directly from the airline, on local transit and commuting, and on fitness club and gym memberships, and 1 point for all other purchases. Each year after your cardmember anniversary you'll receive a free night at any category 1-4 Hyatt property. Cardholders also enjoy Discoverist status in the World of Hyatt, which include benefits like free internet, late check out, and more. There is a $95 annual fee for this card.
