Omni Select Guest is no longer giving guests the option to earn frequent flyer miles when staying at Omni properties as of April 30, 2012. In the past, members could earn 500 miles/points per stay in more than a dozen frequent travel programs including American, United, British Airways and others as well as Amtrak. Now, members will earn credits toward a free award night only.
Bottom line: Credits toward award nights was first introduced in 2009, and according to Omni, a vast majority of Select Guest members have chosen to earn free nights. But this is still a disappointment for members because it takes away a valuable benefit of the program–especially for members who might not stay at Omni enough to earn a free hotel stay.
