Stash Hotel Rewards is an entirely new program that rewards you for staying where you really want. With Stash, you earn and redeem points for free nights at authentic, independent hotels across the U.S. — so you can say no to the big, bland hotel chains.
It's easy. First, click Join Now to enroll. It's free and only takes a few minutes. Then, stay at any Stash Partner Hotel and earn five points for every dollar you spend on eligible room rates prior to taxes. Earn enough points and you can redeem them for free stays at any Partner Hotel.
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
On average, Stash Partner Hotels have between 150-200 rooms. Big enough to provide amenities found at a big chain hotel, but small enough to create personal guest experiences.

Sure. Just contact the Stash Partner Hotel team through our Member Support form.
Contact the Stash Partner Hotel team at We'll be happy to look at your hotel to see if it meets our criteria.
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 make sure they're accurate and up-to-date.
Our star ratings are based on a set of industry standards and our own assessment of the hotel's service, amenities, reputation and location. We also consider the ratings given by travel sites and travel guides to make sure that our ratings will best match a traveler'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.

Stash was created for people who believe that travel is one of life's great pleasures. As a Stash Member, you can:

  • Experience independent hotels and earn points: Until now, only the big chains offered rewards programs. With Stash, you can stay where you want and earn points toward free nights. That means every trip — even a business trip — can be an opportunity to truly experience a place.
  • Find great independent hotels: The Stash Web site features detailed hotel descriptions, maps, advanced search and plenty of photos to showcase the unique characteristics of Partner Hotels. The hard part is choosing one.
  • Redeem easily: There are no blackout dates for redemption and points never expire. You can pick any room at any Stash Partner Hotel you want, subject to availability.
Just click on Join Now and enter your information to begin enrollment. It's free and only takes a few minutes. You'll receive a confirmation email once we process your membership. You can return to My Account at any time to change your account information or update your preferences.
Your email address is your Stash account ID (we think that's easier to remember than some 16-digit number). Just be sure to use the email address associated with your Stash account when making your hotel reservations.
There is no way we will share, sell or rent any of your personal information to others for their own marketing purposes. See our Privacy Policy for more information.
It's easy. Go to My Account and make any changes. We'll send you a notification email of any changes made to your email or password.
Your points should appear soon after you complete your stay at a Partner Hotel (although in some cases it can take up to 14 days). If you have questions about whether your points have been recorded, contact us at Member Support.
Go to the Sign In page and click the forgot password link. We'll send you an email with a link in it to create a new password.
Membership is generally open to any adult (see Terms and Conditions). Corporations, associations, groups and/or other entities are not eligible to become Members. There is no fee to become a Stash Member.
Please do. To let other travel lovers know about Stash, go to My Account and click the Invite Friends link.
You earn points when you complete an eligible stay at a Stash Partner Hotel. Just make sure to inform the front desk at check-in that you are a Stash member and confirm that they have your Stash ID (email address) correctly in their system. That's all we need to process your rewards. Please note it can take up to 2 weeks for points to post to your account.
An eligible stay is a room booked directly with the hotel rather than booked through a third-party agent like Priceline. However, there are some situations where a direct booking may not earn points (e.g., certain deeply-discounted rates). Refer to the Terms for more details.
You earn five Stash Points for every dollar you spend on eligible room rates.
It depends. You always earn five Stash Points for every dollar you spend on eligible room rates. 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 $150 room rate will earn you 1,500 points (5 pts x 150 dollars x 2 nights), while a three-night stay at a $200 room rate will earn you 3,000 points (5 pts x 200 dollars x 3 nights).
The front desk staff or call center can see your rewards balance when they check to see if you are a member, but cannot make any updates or changes to it.  To see per-stay information and keep track of your balance, go to My Account.
Yes. As long as you personally settle the charges for the room reservation, you are eligible to earn points. Just make sure you use the email address associated with your Stash account when you make the reservation. Also, advise the individual staying that they need to confirm that your Stash ID email address is recorded with their reservation prior to check-out.
Yes. You can book up to two eligible rooms for the same dates and earn points on both of them.
Currently, points are only awarded on eligible room rates. But that may change as we continue to improve our program for our members and Partner Hotels.
No. Stash Points do not expire. However, we may deactivate your account if it has been more than 18 months since you earned or used Stash Points.
Stash Points are only awarded to the member who uses the email associated with their Stash account when making the reservation. Only one member can earn points for a stay.
If it has been 14 days since your stay at a Stash Partner Hotel and you do not see the points in your account, contact Member Support.
Go to My Account to check your points balance at any time.
No. At this time, only you can use your points.
No. At this time, points can only be used for Stash program benefits.
Points are only awarded for bookings made directly with the hotel. Bookings made through online travel agencies like Travelocity and Orbitz or discount sites like Priceline and Hotwire are not eligible to earn Stash Points.
To earn points for your stay make sure to enroll with Stash Hotel Rewards and that the Partner Hotel has this same email address on file before you check out. Remember, your email address is your Member ID, no cards or long numbers to remember. Use this email address for all your future stays at Stash Partner Hotels to ensure you earn your points.
You can redeem points at any Stash Partner Hotel. For a list of properties, click here. The number of points required for a free night varies according to hotel, room type, and demand. 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.
Visit our Redeem page to begin. Simply enter the dates you want to travel and the number of guests. In the search results list, select a hotel and room type. Then click "Use points". Once you submit your request, you'll receive a confirmation email with all the reservation details within 24 hours.
No. You can only redeem points on the Stash site.
At this time, cash is not accepted. You need to have enough points in your account to cover the room you want. But we hope to allow members to supplement their points with cash in the near future.
Review your account balance in the My Account section and determine how many nights you are able to book at the hotel.  Then submit your redemption request for those night(s) on our Redeem Points page. After you receive the confirmation from Stash, you can book the additional night(s) through the hotel directly, and ask that the hotel tie your new reservation to your redemption reservation by providing the hotel with the Stash redemption confirmation number.
No. As long as you have sufficient points, you can book as many free nights as you'd like.
No. Points can only be redeemed for free nights at Partner Hotels.
No. Our goal is to connect travelers with one-of-a-kind independent hotels. By staying focused on that goal, we hope to provide more value than any other hotel rewards program.
You must contact Stash to change or cancel a reservation booked with points.
