What hotel chain is the Four Seasons part of? Does Four Seasons belong to the Marriott Bonvoy rewards program? How about Hyatt, Hilton, Conrad, Waldorf Astoria, Leading Hotels Of The World, InterContinental, IHG, Ritz-Carlton, or Accor?
The answer to this question is that Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts are not part of any hotel chain or rewards program. Four Seasons stands as its own ultra-luxury entity. As a result, you can’t collect rewards at any Four Seasons hotels.
This is quite unusual. Most hotels, even little boutique hotels, are usually part of a larger brand and loyalty rewards program. This helps with their marketing and getting each individual hotel known. Unlike boutique hotels, Four Seasons has such a strong brand and loyal guest base that they do not need help in marketing in a way that smaller hotels do.
Four Seasons relies on the strength of its own brand along with the incredible quality and service provided that keeps regular travelers returning again and again. This means that they don’t need a point or a revenue-based loyalty program to encourage repeat bookings, and they don’t need to be part of a more mainstream brand.
How Do I get Reward Style Benefits?
You can take advantage of loyalty style benefits, much like those that would be gifted to you if you were a top-tier member of one of the big chain loyalty programs, from your very first stay at any Four Seasons hotel.
Most luxury hotels, including Four Seasons hotels, have hidden travel agent loyalty programs that give guests free benefits. Book your next luxury hotel stay via our luxury travel concierge, and we can get you free loyalty-style benefits, room upgrades, and perks.
Book your next Four Seasons stay with us and typically, the benefits we can offer are outlined below:
- Breakfast for two people per bedroom
- Spa or Food and beverage credit of $100 USD per stay
- Upgrade of one category, based on availability at time of check-in (this usually excludes suites)
- Early check-in / late check-out (subject to availability)
- Complimentary basic Internet in all guest rooms
- Complimentary welcome gift
Our rates are identical to the price on the Four Seasons website. Book with us, and you get the free benefits (outlined above) on top.
How do we do this? Four Seasons partners directly with a small number of high-end agencies, including our own luxury travel concierge, which means that we can share our privileges with our clients at all Four Seasons hotels and resorts.
Our luxury travel concierge is an exclusive and official Four Seasons agent. What does this mean? Put simply, you get the benefits outlined above as well as priority upgrades over those who book using Virtuoso agents or via partnerships like Amex Finest Hotels & Resorts. 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 circulating about 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, forget it. 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 Four Seasons discount some of their hotels quite heavily (like my personal favorite 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!
Why I Love A Four Seasons Hotel
Four Seasons hotels are some of the best in the world. There are currently around 100 properties in more than 40 countries with plans to build and launch many more new hotels. Each hotel is one of the finest hotels, resorts, and residence clubs in each location.
I love Four Seasons hotels, not least because they are so lovely to my son. My little boy is welcomed with open arms across all Four Seasons hotels, and yet, I have never experienced badly behaved children in the communal areas within Four Seasons hotels.
And when you are tired and in an unfamiliar part of the world that’s far from home, a Four Seasons hotel will make you feel cossetted and safe. The staff will know where the nearest pharmacy or doctor is. They will have a supply of any toiletries that you forget. They will cater for your child who refuses to eat egg because “there are black bits in it” (even if the fearful black bits are just pepper). They get it!
Where necessary, they will provide an adult-only pool so that you can keep your sanity. As a result, Four Seasons satisfies the needs and tastes of any discerning traveler, with or without a family, and is one of the world’s best and most well-known luxury hotel brands.
