Flexible Bank-Point Hotel Transfer Partner Master Guide

To accompany the Flexible Bank-Point Airline Transfer Partner Master Guide I've created a similar version showing which transferrable points can be transferred to certain hotel programs. Although hotel transfer options are much fewer than airline transfer partner, there are still some valuable hotel programs to transfer bank-points into. All of the major bank-point programs---Chase Ultimate Rewards (UR)American Express Membership Rewards (MR), and Citi ThankYou Rewards---have at least one hotel transfer partner. SPG of course is a hotel program itself, so it does not have hotel transfer partners, but does allow transfers to many airline programs.

However, in many cases the value proposition of transferring bank-points to hotel programs is less than that of transferring to airline programs. In fact, the only hotel program that deserves substantial recognition is Hyatt where you can often easily find point redemptions with a value of 2.0+ cents each. That said, each persons best use of points will differ with their travel goals and if you have a specific point stay in mind, it may make sense to transfer points to those hotel programs.

I've also included a value per point estimate to show the most valuable transfer options. In general Hyatt and SPG points far out-value other hotel programs, but the transfer rate to SPG from Amex Membership Rewards is less than favorable. Obviously both things to consider when transferring to a hotel programs include 1) how much value can you get from specific hotel points? and 2) what is the transfer rate from the bank-point program. For a comparison of how many points it costs per night with each hotel program in each category check out my hotel award night comparison.

Included in the hotel transfer chart is a range of estimated value you can expect to get from the specific hotel point. Below is also a table including the transfer rate, in which most point programs transfer at a 1 to 1 ratio, but I’ve noted where some programs have a different transfer rate.
