For guests that frequently stay at the same hotel chain, loyalty programs are a great way to earn points towards a free stay while possibly also obtaining some small perks that nonmembers can’t receive. But, with the Omni Select Guest program, travelers can start getting benefits on their first stay.
When you sign up for the Omni Select Guest program, you’ll be enrolled as a Gold member. Gold members accumulate points towards free stays, but also receive lots of other perks, including free bottled water on the arrival day, pressing of two items, free 3MB WiFi service, daily newspaper of your choice, free overnight shoe shine, complimentary morning beverage delivery at the time of your choice (up to two beverages), evening housekeeping service including turndown service, and more. The Gold level is for guests who have stayed at an Omni hotel for 0-9 nights.
Once you’ve stayed for 10 nights as a member of the Omni Select Guest program, you’ll be upgraded to the Platinum level, which includes the same benefits of the Gold program, plus bottled water for every night of your stay (rather than just arrival night), guaranteed room availability, late checkout (up to 3pm), administrative business services, local market amenity, and more.
Finally, after 30 nights as a member of the Omni Select Guest program, you’ll be upgraded to the Black level. This includes all of the same benefits and amenities as the Platinum level, including other exclusive benefits, like complimentary pressing of unlimited items (rather than the 2 items in the Gold and Platinum levels), double upgrades at check-in, guaranteed room availability up to 4pm on day of arrival, late checkout up to 6pm, early check in as early as 9am, complimentary beverage on night of arrival, and more.
Members of the Omni Select Guest program can also earn free stays with the program. I like the fact that it’s pretty simple to figure out how to get a free night – rather than earning points and figuring out how many points you’ll need for a free night, you just need to stay 10 qualifying nights at an Omni and you automatically earn one night on any future stay (excluding taxes, fees, and food/beverage for all-inclusive resorts).
It’s free to sign up for the Omni Select Guest program – just visit their website or sign up at check-in.
