#8 in Best Hotel Rewards Programs


You can accrue and redeem complimentary stays with any Small Luxury Hotels of the World property. To earn a free night, you must stay at least five times or spend $6,000 within a calendar year. Only qualifying stays – stays booked through or the SLH voice reservation team with your membership ID – count toward the free night reward.

Earn Points

As a member of the INVITED program, you can earn free reward nights once you complete a specific number of qualifying stays or spend a certain amount of money. A qualifying stay is defined as one stay at an SLH property, regardless of the number of nights. You must include your membership ID in the reservation and book directly on or with the SLH voice reservations team for a stay to qualify. You will earn a complimentary night after five stays or spending $6,000 within a calendar year.

Using Points

INVITED program members can redeem up to five free reward night vouchers per hotel, per stay. Reward night vouchers expire after one year, and extensions are not permitted. The average value of a reward night voucher is $300, which can be used for a stay in a standard room. Members will need to pay an additional charge if they wish to use their reward night voucher toward a higher class of room or if the standard nightly room rate at the hotel surpasses $300. Below are the number of stays needed for one free night in any room (ranging from standard rooms to premium rooms) in a selection of popular business and leisure destinations:
