The Virtuoso Preferred Hotels program offers benefits such as:

Three More Virtuoso Preferred Hotel Rate Benefits

  • Flexibility: many travel sites promote prepaid, nonrefundable hotel rates that don’t include any amenities. More importantly, they can not be changed or cancelled once booked. Most Virtuoso Hotels & Resorts rates offer flexibility. Typically, our partner hotels only require a credit card guarantee to hold your Virtuoso reservation.  Should your plans change, we just need to let the hotel know before its stated cancelation policy.
  • Loyalty Benefits: member of a hotel loyalty program? Many frequent guest programs don’t offer points or benefits for rates booked through popular travel websites. But since we book our Virtuoso Hotels & Resorts program rate reservations directly with our partner hotels, you typically will enjoy all the benefits offered by the hotel’s program.
  • Internet access: most of our Virtuoso partner hotels offer complimentary internet access to guests booked at a Virtuoso rate.
