Stash Hotel Rewards is a loyalty 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. and the Caribbean — 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. Go here for more information.
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
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.

Sure. Just contact the Stash Hotel Partnerships team through our Member Support form.
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.

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 member 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. Or accelerate your earn rate at partner hotels to 8 points/dollar with the new Stash Rewards Visa Credit Card. Learn how here.
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). Accelerate your earn rate at partner hotels to 8 points/dollar with the new Stash Rewards Visa Credit Card. Learn how here.
The front desk staff and 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 upon check-out, 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 member 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. However, with the Stash Rewards Visa Credit Card, you are awarded points on all purchases.
No. Stash Points do not expire. However, we may deactivate your account if it has been more than 18 months since you earned or redeemed Stash Points. But don't worry, we are not currently deactivating any accounts, and we will contact you via email if this changes. 
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.

Points are only awarded for bookings made directly with the hotel.

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 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 Stash member ID, no cards or long numbers to remember.
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. Enter the City or Hotel you'd like to visit, the dates you want to travel and the number of guests. In the search results list, select a hotel and click "Use Points." Once you submit your request, you'll receive a confirmation with reservation details or an email from Stash 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 with points. Then submit your redemption request for those night(s) on our Redeem 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.

Please submit a new redemption request via our Redeem page for one or more nights of your existing reservation for the same room type you’ve already booked. Once your Stash reservation is confirmed, you can then cancel that night(s) covered by points off your existing reservation. If you’re paying for additional nights, be sure to add notes in the “Room Preferences” portion of your redemption request that you are staying additional nights, and we’ll request that the hotel keep you in the same room for your entire stay.
