Coming soon: Earn double points with Marriott’s Homes & Villas program

The key credit cards that offer hotel elite status

I recently wrote a post that covered hotel loyalty programs that offer lifetime elite status and a post that took a look at whether or not lifetime elite status with hotel loyalty programs is a worthwhile thing to pursue, and a natural progression from those posts is to take a look at the credit cards that offer cardholders elite status with the major hotel chains like Hilton Marriott and Hyatt as part of the benefits package they offer.
