How To Get Elite Hotel Benefits Just By Having A Credit Card

Hotels provide special elite benefits to frequent guests of the hotel chain as a thank-you for being good customers. While each chain has different benefits for differing levels of membership, the things you’ll usually see offered are a welcome gift, free wifi, early check in, late check out, an upgraded room and a variety of other perks.
