Stash Partner Hotels represent some of the best upscale and luxury hotels in the U.S. They are:
  • Independent: Not part of a big chain
  • Highly recommended: On average, a TripAdvisor "Recommend" rating of over 80 percent
  • Distinctive: One-of-a-kind properties that truly reflect their locales
  • Recognized: Many have appeared in Condé Nast Traveler or Travel+Leisure

To see a list of current Stash Partner Hotels, visit our Partner Hotels page. 

Stash Partner Hotels average between 150-200 rooms. Big enough to provide amenities found at chain hotels, but small enough to create a more personal guest experience.

Contact the Stash Hotel Partnerships team at We'll be happy to look at your hotel to see if it meets our criteria. You can also find more information here.
We use information from the hotels, guest comments, our own experiences, and other sources to create a vivid profile of each hotel. Hotel staff reviews our descriptions to ensure accuracy. 
We base our star ratings on a set of industry standards and our own assessment of service, amenities, reputation, and location. We also consider the ratings given by travel sites and travel guides to ensure our ratings match our member's expectations.
No. Stash is not a management company or a chain of hotels, and therefore, it does not play a role in managing or operating the Stash partner hotels. Instead, all operating decisions are made by hotel management. Policies may differ by Stash partner hotel, since they are all independently owned and managed.

Earn more points with the Stash Visa Card!

You earn 5 points per dollar for Partner Hotel stays and 1 point per dollar for Non-Partner Hotel stays booked through Stash. You can also earn 5 points per dollar for eligible stays booked through Stash Partner Hotels directly. Points are awarded on the total room revenue prior to taxes and fees. 

Accelerate your earn rate with the Stash Visa Card!

It depends. You earn 5 points per dollar on eligible room rates at Partner Hotels, and 1 point per dollar at Non-Partner Hotels. Points are awarded on the room rate prior to taxes and fees.

Since each hotel sets its own room rates, the points you'll earn per stay will vary. For example, a two-night stay at a Partner Hotel with a $150 room rate will earn you 1,500 points (5 pts x 150 dollars x 2 nights), while a three-night stay at Partner Hotel with a $200 room rate will earn you 3,000 points (5 pts x 200 dollars x 3 nights).

Accelerate your earn rate with the Stash Visa Card!

At Stash Partner Hotels, an eligible stay is a room booked on our website or directly with the hotel rather than booked through a third-party agent like Expedia. However, there are some situations where a direct booking through the hotel may not earn points (e.g., certain deeply-discounted rates). Refer to the Terms for more details.

For Non-Partner Hotel bookings, you must book your stay through Stash to qualify for 1 point/dollar.


Any stay booked on the Stash website will qualify for Stash points (except for stays booked using points).

  2. Search by city or hotel name, travel dates and number of occupants

We use a Booking Number to identify and locate reservations booked on our website. If your Booking Number is 7 digits, you’ve booked a Stash Partner Hotel. If your Booking Number is 9 or 10 digits, you have booked a Non-Partner Hotel. Non-Partner Hotel reservations also have a reservation-specific 4 digit Pin Number. You’ll need to reference the Booking Number (and Pin Number for Non-Partner Hotel reservations) in order to change or cancel your reservation. Both numbers can be found on the My Account page and in your confirmation email. 

All reservations booked at Non-Partner Hotels on our website are powered by, and that's why your confirmation email came directly from By booking the reservation directly on, you’re guaranteed to earn Stash points. You can view the reservation details in your My Account page, but any changes or cancellations to these reservations will be handled by Customer Service.

Yes. As long as you personally settle the charges for the room reservation upon check-out (and your stay is eligible, per our membership Terms), you can earn points. Just make sure you use the email address associated with your Stash account when you make the reservation.

No. We are not able to award 5 points/dollar for staying at a hotel prior to the date they went live with our program. However, if you booked this reservation on our website, you will still earn 1 point per dollar! You always get rewarded for stays booked through Stash. 

If you booked your stay while the hotel was still a Stash Partner Hotel but they have since left the program, please contact Member Support with a copy of your confirmation email. If your stay was booked after the hotel left the program, we won't be able to award points for that stay, however, you can still continue to book that hotel on our website and earn 1 point per dollar. 

Members may earn points for up to 29 nights of an extended stay, per our Terms.
No. At this time, only you can use your points. However, you may redeem points for another person's stay by entering the other person's name as the Guest when booking a stay with your points.

Points are only awarded for bookings made on our website or directly with the Partner Hotel. Bookings made through online travel agencies like Expedia and Orbitz or discount sites like Priceline and Hotwire are not eligible to earn Stash Points. Also, stays paid for via gift card, gift certificate, or third-party voucher (e.g. Groupon) do not qualify for points. See our Terms for more details.
To earn points for an eligible stay, make sure you are enrolled as a Stash member and confirm that the Partner Hotel has your Stash ID email address on file before you check out.

We realize your travel plans may take you to places where we do not yet have Stash Partner Hotels. When booking your stay, if you search for a city where there are no Partner Hotels, you now have the option to book other hotels without having to leave our website! And you'll even get 1 point per dollar when you book Non-Partner Hotels on our site. How cool is that?!

We are working with in order to allow bookings for thousands of hotels on our website. We acknowledge that while Stash members prefer to stay at Partner Hotels, that's not always an option. So we're happy that we can now offer a way to book all your hotel stays in one place (and earn points)! While we are working with to provide this service on our website, please note that bookings must occur on our website in order to qualify for points. Reservations made through directly or any other online travel agency will not qualify for Stash points. 

Many Stash Partner Hotels offer bonus points for meetings and events, however, bonuses must be negotiated directly with the hotel prior to the event. Meeting bonuses are determined and managed at the property level, so each hotel's policy is unique to their property. If you are interested in booking a meeting or event at a Stash Partner Hotel in the future, visit our Meetings + Events page for information on meeting spaces and to request a proposal.

The rates displayed on are provided to us by the hotel. At this time, we’re not able to book reservations at Partner Hotels or Non-Partner Hotels on package or special promotional rates. Reservations booked directly on are always eligible to earn points, and most rates booked directly with our Partner Hotels are eligible to earn points as well. If you decide to book directly with one of our Partner Hotels, check with the hotel to make sure your reservation will be eligible to earn points.

Stash points can be redeemed for free stays at Stash Partner Hotels.

Rooms may sell out, so you should make reservations as early as possible to get the hotel, room and dates you want.
It depends.  Redemption rates vary by property and the partner hotels set redemption rates dynamically, based on the cost of and demand for a room. During slow periods, Stash partner hotels can offer rooms at a deep discount, and members can redeem using fewer points. During busy times, partners may increase redemption rates, in the same way that airlines charge more for a flight when demand is high.  You may need more points for a free night during busy periods, but unlike many of the large chain programs, Stash partner hotels don’t blackout dates at peak season.

Please include the confirmation number and dates of your redemption reservation in the reservation notes to indicate to the hotel that you would like these 2 reservations linked together.
