Earn Other Currencies

General

  1. Members may not earn Rewards Points, Ctrip Points, and Miles for the same stay. A Member may switch among earning Miles, Ctrip Points, or Rewards Points, before a given stay by updating his or her Membership profile or by contacting the Rewards Program Guest Services office. The Member will begin earning the new "currency" (Rewards Points, Ctrip Points, or Miles) with the next stay. Previous earnings will not be converted to the new currency. If the Member wishes to "convert" Rewards Points into Ctrip Points, the member may redeem Rewards Points for a Ctrip Reward.

  2. A “stay" or "qualifying stay" means all consecutive nights a Rewards Program Member registers and personally pays and stays at any Rewards Program participating hotel, for which the room is billed to the Member.
