I’m often asked if Four Seasons hotels and resorts are part of the Marriott Bonvoy Rewards Program? The answer is no. In fact, Four Seasons stands alone as an elite group of hotels that are not part of any rewards program. Four Seasons has no rewards program at all and there is no way to earn points or spend or redeem points on stays.

There is, however, one way to take advantage of loyalty style benefits on your next booking, much like those that you would be gifted if you were a top tier member of one of the big chain loyalty programs. These benefits will be applied at all Four Seasons, even the very best Four Seasons hotels.

You can take advantage of these free loyalty style benefits from your very first stay. How? Let me share. Most luxury hotels have hidden travel agent loyalty programs that give you free benefits if you book with the right “Virtuoso” or hotel partner agent, like our own luxury travel concierge. For Four Seasons hotel bookings, you will get these free benefits on all the rates (including special offer rates that you see on the Four Seasons website) as long as you book with us.

So if you see a room rate of $500 per night for a Four Seasons hotel or resort on the Four Seasons hotel website, our luxury travel concierge will match that $500 rate AND add in the following free benefits*:

  • Daily full American breakfast for two people per bedroom, served through In-Room Dining or in the hotel restaurant (including buffets)
  • Food and beverage or Spa credit of USD100
  • Upgrade of one category, based on availability at time of check-in (excluding signature suites, villas, and private residences)
  • Welcome note at check-in acknowledging you and the amenities that are being extended
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

How does our luxury travel concierge do this? Four Seasons partners directly with a small number of high-end agencies, including our own, to share extra privileges at all Four Seasons hotels and resorts. To get these benefits, you must book your Four Seasons stay with one of our agents.

Why book with us?

Beyond our benefits at Four Seasons hotels, we offer similar benefits at most luxury hotels. We offer a personalized concierge service and will hold your hand through any hotel booking as we care about you getting the best deal and having the best time.

We are also helpful if you need advice. We can help you pick the best rooms and tell you about your hotel and destination, often from personal experience.

The relationship we have at each hotel means that you will have priority on upgrades and you will enjoy the best possible VIP experience at your chosen Four Seasons hotel.

Here are just some comments from clients who recently booked with our lovely agents:

“Really well done. The view from Mom’s room literally made her cry. Which made me cry. So thanks for that. LOL.” – Dwayne

“You have been wonderful and I would love to recommend your services.” – Ella

“Hi Yasmin :) it’s our last full day tomorrow and I wanted to say thank you for everything you did for us :) they moved us into a suite after a couple of nights and it’s just stunning, I’m so so grateful and I will share your details with literally everyone I know so that they can book through you as well :) thank you again :)” – Steph from Médecins Sans Frontières.

Get Priority Benefits

The Four Seasons hotel benefits that we offer are prioritized because we are an exclusive Four Seasons agent. What does this mean? Put simply, a room booked by us will get priority upgrades over other agents. It is only an elite group of official Four Seasons travel agents who get prioritized. If there is only one room left which is the category above yours, we put you at the front of the line for this upgrade!

Will There Ever Be A Four Seasons Loyalty Program?

There have been rumours wafting about regarding a consumer Four Seasons loyalty program for years. The truth is that none of these rumors have come to fruition. At least not yet! The only way to get loyalty style benefits is to book through a high-end travel agency like our own luxury travel concierge.

As for rewards, you just can’t earn them from Four Seasons hotels. You won’t be able to collect for free nights. Your best bet is to book a 3-4-2 free night offer or to book out of the main season when they discount some of their hotels quite heavily (like Four Seasons Grand Hotel Du Cap Ferrat in November, just before it closes). You can’t take advantage of the sun and heat in the same way in the low season, but a stay at a Four Seasons hotel is always fantastic, even in the rain!
