Hotel Credit Cards

Hotel credit cards are a surprisingly good deal, in comparison to airline credit cards and even normal rewards credit cards. Many give rewards not just for staying at the hotel, or for spending at affiliates, but also for spending on everyday purchases like groceries. Hotel rewards are notoriously hard to quantify, since points can be used in so many different scenarios. But we've done our homework and calculated how much a room costs compared to how many points it takes to book the room, putting a dollar value on murky hotel rewards points. Check out our infographic on hotel rewards for an in-depth look at hotel rewards programs.
