Benefits of Chase’s Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection

If you have the right Chase credit card and want to stay in luxury hotels around the world as a VIP, the Chase Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection is worth checking out. Essentially, this collection is offered through a travel portal that lets you unlock special benefits when you make an eligible booking.

You do have to book the stay with your Chase credit card for perks to apply, and the main benefits you’ll get include the following:

  • Daily breakfast for two
  • Special benefit worth up to $100 (unique to each property, but can include a welcome gift, spa credits, meal credits, golf discounts and more)
  • Complimentary internet access
  • Room upgrade based on availability
  • Early check-in based on availability
  • Late check-out based on availability

When you look at Chase Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection properties on the portal’s website, you can get a feel for how these benefits might work depending on where you stay. As an example, The Palazzo at The Venetian in Las Vegas lists regular perks as part of their stay, plus travelers get daily breakfast credit of up to $65 per suite, per day, and a signature bottle of champagne in their suite once per stay.

How to book a stay with the Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection

The first step to booking a stay in the Chase Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection is making sure you have an eligible Chase credit card. At that point, you have full access to all the properties in the collection and their various benefits, and you can make a booking as soon as your credit card arrives in the mail.

Once you’re ready, follow these steps to make a luxurious hotel reservation you’ll never forget.

Step 1: Search for properties in the portal

Head to the official website for the Chase Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection and begin searching for properties in your destination over your preferred dates.

Step 2: Click on the card type you have

Once you begin your search, Chase will ask you to select your eligible card type and log in to your online account. If you don’t have an eligible Chase credit card yet, you’ll be given the opportunity to apply.

Step 3: Select a hotel stay and proceed with the booking process

Once you log in, you can browse available properties and offers for your dates. At this point, you can choose a property and begin your booking. Note that it’s possible not all charges will be listed as you compare properties and pricing, and that some charges (like resort fees) need to be paid at eligible properties when you check in.

Step 5: Enter payment information with your eligible Chase credit card

Finally, you’ll enter your address and payment information for the booking and use your eligible Chase credit card to pay. Be aware that you’ll need to enter your full credit card details, including the three-digit code on the back of the card and the expiration date, for the purchase to go through.

The bottom line

The Chase Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection can be worth exploring if you have the right travel credit card, are traveling for a special occasion and want elite perks. However, you’ll still want to compare pricing as if you were booking directly to see if the extra perks you get are even worth it. For example, you could always price out the cost of the property you want booked directly with a room upgrade included, the cost of breakfast and the added property credits you get built-in.

That said, you could also just reward yourself and book a VIP stay as a treat. At the end of the day, it’s fun to splurge sometimes and that’s what the Chase Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection helps you do. The portal may not be ideal for longer stays or family trips, but it’s a great way to flex your rewards muscles for romantic getaways, anniversary trips and other special occasions.
