Which Hotel Chain Promotions are Running in March 2022?

Here is the InsideFlyer take on the main hotel chain-wide promotions available in March 2022.

Hilton Honors

Hilton’s first promotion of 2022 started on January 1st and runs throughout March. Members earn 2,500 bonus points per STAY.

Worth It?

2,500 bonus points is worth $12.50 at best. For an inexpensive stay, this can be a reasonable bonus (but not for long, expensive stays!)

You can also earn these bonus points on award stays.

World of Hyatt

Hyatt’s first promotion of 2022 started on January 15th and runs throughout March. Members can earn 2,022 bonus points every SECOND night.

Confusingly, Hyatt credit card holders can also earn 1,000 bonus points per STAY at selected hotels in the United States.

Worth It?

The worldwide promotion works out to 1,011 bonus points per night, worth roughly $15-18. For an inexpensive stay, this can be a reasonable bonus. But for expensive stays you won’t be happy with the % rebate.

However, you also earn these bonus points on award stays.

Marriott Bonvoy

Marriott’s first promotion of 2022 started on February 8th and will run throughout March. Members can earn double elite status credit and 1,000 bonus points per night.

Worth It?

1,000 bonus points per night is worth roughly $6-8. For an inexpensive stay, this can be a reasonable bonus. But for expensive stays you won’t be happy with the % rebate.

The double elite night element will be very attractive to those readers chasing Marriott elite status.

IHG Rewards

IHG’s first chain-wide promotion of 2022 started on February 1st and will run throughout March. Members can earn double points. These bonus points also can be used for the purposes of qualifying for elite status (via the points method).

Worth It?

Since IHG points are worth 0.4-0.5 cents each, a double point bonus is worth an additional 4-5% of rebate.

However if you are interested in earning elite status before everything changes in March 2022, the fact that these bonus points count for status can be quite appealing…

Bottom Line

All 4 major hotel chains now have a chain-wide promotion running in March 2022. None are particularly lucrative for expensive paid stays, but the elite status multiplier for Marriott and IHG is certainly worth considering…
