These are five of the most exclusive select programs where B Luxe Escapes can deliver a unique experience for your next trip. Even if you are at the highest level of a hotel’s loyalty program, most of these perks you cannot get on your own. I’ve built solid relationships with many travel suppliers as a luxury travel advisor. I lean on these relationships so I can make sure that my clients will receive an incredible level of service and the VIP treatment they deserve!
Hyatt Privé is an exclusive program that is by invitation only to a select group of luxury travel agencies. This is an amazing program if you regularly stay in Hyatts. There are over 200 participating properties including Park Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Andaz, Grand Hyatt, and Thompson. These benefits/amenities are not bookable by consumers so that’s where I come in.
The Hyatt Privé rate should be identical to the standard/flexible rate – it does not add any extra cost to your booking. When booked through a Hyatt Privé advisor, your reservation will include free breakfast, $50-$100 hotel credit to use on incidentals or food & beverage, upgrades confirmed within 24 hours, early check-in/late check-out when available, and additional welcome gifts at check in. It’s a truly fantastic program and adds so much value to your trip!
Marriott Stars and Luminous
Marriott STARS benefits clients as part of their stay at participating BVLGARI, EDITION, The Luxury Collection, The Ritz-Carlton, The Ritz-Carlton Reserve, and St. Regis properties. Benefits include room upgrades, welcome amenity, complimentary breakfast, and hotel/resort credits! One thing that makes this program different is that you will have first priority for the requested room category and connecting rooms.
LUMINOUS includes premium Bonvoy brands, including participating Autograph Collection, JW Marriott, Le Meridien, Marriott, Renaissance, Tribute Portfolio, W Hotels, and Westin properties. Perks include complimentary breakfast, personalized welcome amenity, room upgrade and early check-in/late check-out (if available), complimentary wi-fi, and a resort credit at select hotels.
Virtuoso is a global luxury network of leisure travel advisors and carefully curated travel providers. Hotels within the Virtuoso network can be independent, boutique, or name brand hotels. There is a wide variety of styles, budgets, and locations. Benefits of booking through a Virtuoso Advisor include: complimentary daily breakfast, $100 resort credit, early check-in/late check-out, VIP attention, complimentary room upgrades based on availability, and a special welcome amenity. Virtuoso stretches beyond hotels; it applies to cruises, tours, and in-country destination partners. Some even offer Virtuoso Advisors special discounts just for our VIP clients! In many cases, the rate is generally the same as the best available rate on the hotel’s website, so you know you are truly getting complimentary amenities!
Bonus: If you want to book your own last minute trip but still take advantage of these amenities, use my Virtuoso Hotel Booking Link.
Belmond Bellini Club
The invitation-only Bellini Club includes less than 100 agencies worldwide. If you adore the Belmond brand, which includes unique hotels, luxury trains, and barge cruises, you absolutely want to make sure you’re using a Bellini advisor. Complimentary breakfast, complimentary upgrades, fully flexible hotel or resort credit up to $200 per stay, VIP recognition by property management and staff, special in-room welcome amenity, and more.
Accor STEP (Special Travel Experience Program)
As a member of the STEP program, we have a dedicated contact on property. We will let them know your specific preferences before arrival. When the room type you want is sold-out, guess who will be at the top of the waitlist? YOU! My clients will be eligible to receive unique value-added benefits and VIP status as part of their stay at Accor hotels & resorts around the globe. Benefits include room upgrades, complimentary breakfast, and hotel/resort credits! Luxury brands in the Accor family include Fairmont, Sofitel, Banyan Tree, FAENA, Delano, SLS, and Raffles.
So there you have it! Five valuable hotel programs I can extend to you to enhance your trip!
