When it comes to traveler benefits, the I Prefer℠ Hotel Rewards program is one not to miss. Staying with Preferred Hotels & Resorts means you can enjoy some of the best perks of being an I Prefer Member at independent hotels around the world.

The Best Perks of Being an I Prefer Member

This past week I had the opportunity to stay at one of Preferred Hotels’ best properties in Barcelona — the iconic Hotel Miramar. Overlooking the expansive city of Barcelona, it truly does have the best seat in the house. Originally an art-deco palace, the now renovated hotel boasting 75 rooms, a world-class spa, and an incredible restaurant sits perfectly on Montjuïc hill. My tip for an exclusive experience? Take full advantage of  the I Prefer Member perks to make it a stay to remember.

The Early Check-In.
Arriving early at Hotel Miramar, we were able to check in immediately into our room. One of the perks of being an I Prefer Member is early check-in when available at the hotel — there’s nothing like getting into your room early and getting to settle in. (all members get this perk!)

The Room Upgrade.
One of the best surprises during a hotel stay is a room upgrade on arrival. Hotel Miramar was able to upgrade us to a stunning corner suite because of being an I Prefer Member . With a grand terrace, a spacious room, and spa tub, the stay was that more luxurious. Part of being an I Prefer Member is the opportunity to upgrade at check-in, (always based on availability) and is certainly one of my favorite perks.

Welcome amenity.
Being an Elite I Prefer Member, there’s always something extra in the room for you — a welcome amenity! Checking into the room, we had a gift bag with some of my favorite candies from Sugarfina, a beach bag, and a cosmetic bag full of goodies from the spa. It’s touches like that make a stay memorable.

I Prefer points for Dining & Spa
We had points in our account that we could convert to be used towards dining and spa at the hotel. After a long day exploring, we decided to take our points and use it towards in-room dining. We had the best night eating in our robes, enjoying the view, and not having to leave. As an Elite member of I Prefer, you get 15 points for every $1USD spent and as a Insider member, 10 points for every $1USD spent on hotels and on property!
