The Fine Print
- Stash Points are only valid for free nights at participating hotels. They cannot be redeemed for additional expenses, such as dining or spa treatments.
- If you cancel a reward reservation, you may be subject to cancellation or penalty fees depending on the policy of the partner hotel. Unless the hotel imposes a cancellation fee, all Stash Points used for the booking will automatically be refunded and returned to your account.
- If a hotel ceases to be a participant in the Stash Hotel Rewards program (after you made your reservation), you may still be able to receive points for your stay if you send a copy of your confirmation email to the program's Member Support team.
- Your accrued Stash points will never expire.

Leaders Club ...
Leaders Club, the membership program for The Leading Hotels of the World, is most beneficial for leisure travelers – particularly golf and spa enthusiasts – who prefer to stay in boutique properties. There are more than 395 luxury LHW properties across the globe, with numerous locations in the United States, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and more. Though an annual membership fee is required, you can earn one complimentary night for every four or five stays (depending on your membership status), with no limit on the number of free nights you can earn in one year. You'll also have access to member benefits like daily complimentary breakfast for two, free internet access and invitations to Leaders Club events.
The La Quinta Inns & Suites loyalty program, La Quinta Returns, is best suited for budget-conscious business and leisure travelers, offering perks like express check-in and mobile checkout. La Quinta properties can be found in major American cities, including New York City, Miami and San Diego, and – much to road-trippers' delight – along many major U.S. highways. La Quinta's portfolio includes more than 870 properties across the U.S., Canada and Mexico and has a strong presence in Texas (where the company is headquartered). As a La Quinta Returns member, you'll collect points for all nights spent at any hotel within La Quinta's network. Those points can be redeemed for stays at any La Quinta property, as well as at the luxury hotels and resorts the hotel chain is partnered with, including the Omni San Diego Hotel and The Signature at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Plus, La Quinta's alliance with a handful of air carriers, including Southwest Airlines, American Airlines and Alaska Airlines, allows members to convert loyalty points to frequent flyer miles or earn miles instead of La Quinta Returns points. La Quinta Returns members can also apply points to magazine subscriptions or gift certificates for retailers like Amazon and Best Buy. Members of the La Quinta Returns program can now link their accounts with a Wyndham Rewards account and transfer points at a 1-to-1 ratio between programs. Additionally, the two programs offer status matching for members as Wyndham Hotels & Resorts works to combine the programs, which is expected to be completed by spring or summer 2019.
