Membership Levels

The I Prefer program is divided into two membership tiers: Insider and Elite.

Insider

Benefits include:

  • Ability to earn and use points

This is the status you earn simply for enrolling in the I Prefer program for free. Becoming a member allows you to earn and redeem points at Preferred Hotels & Resorts properties. As an Insider, you'll earn 10 points per dollar spent on stays. Membership grants you perks like early check-in and late checkout, plus room upgrades, if available, and free internet access. You must stay at least once every 24 months to keep your Insider account active and to keep your points from expiring.

Elite

Benefits include:

  • Ability to earn and use points
  • Free room upgrades
  • Priority check-in/out
  • Free amenities

After accumulating 50,000 I Prefer points within a calendar year, you will be granted Elite status and benefits. Elite members earn 15 points per dollar spent on hotel stays, plus all the perks that come with Insider status. Additionally, Elite members get a complimentary welcome amenity, which could include a bottle of wine, chocolates or resort credits, among other options. To keep your Elite benefits, you will need to requalify each year.
