The sign-up bonuses for hotel rewards credit cards can be tempting, but is a hotel card right for you?

  • If you frequently stay at a certain chain of hotels, such as Hilton or Marriott, then consider signing up for a hotel-branded credit card that gives you extra discounts with that hotel chain.

  • If you don’t have brand loyalty to a particular chain, consider a flexible travel rewards card (such as Chase Sapphire Preferred or Capital One Venture) that lets you redeem points for hotel stays, airline tickets and other rewards.

  • If you don’t travel often, a card that gives you cash back for your purchases might be your best bet.


Annual Fee
While most premium credit cards do have an annual fee, don't let that deter you. For frequent travelers, the credit cards with an annual fee come with the most generous introductory deal, which often will far exceed the cost of the annual fee.

As with any card, be sure to see whether the APR, annual fee and other benefits are a good fit for you.
