Magnolia Hotel Houston, the only independent luxury hotel in the heart of downtown Houston, announced today that it has partnered with Stash Hotel Rewards, the largest point-based loyalty program for independent hotels across the United States. As a result of this partnership, Stash members are now able to earn and redeem points at Magnolia Hotel Houston, which was named the “Best Boutique Hotel in Houston” by the Houston Press in 2012.
“Our typical guests tend to be independent, frequent travelers that enjoy staying at one-of-a-kind boutique hotels, but also want the benefits of being part of a rewards program,” said Jennifer Kasprzak, Director of Sales and Marketing at Magnolia Hotel Houston. “By partnering with Stash, we are now able to honor our most loyal guests, while also giving them an incentive to stay at other independent hotels across the country that offer similar comforts and amenities that are available here at the Magnolia Hotel Houston.”
Originally home to the Houston Post-Dispatch newspaper, Magnolia Hotel Houston has undergone a full restoration to preserve the rich history of the building, while also incorporating modern upgrades – including a newly redesigned ballroom and recently renovated presidential suites. Centrally located in the heart of the Houston business district, the hotel is ideal for independent business travelers as it offers a complementary town car service, a 24-hour business center, and a nightly cocktail reception.
“Where else can you have cocktails in the historic Reading Room of a major daily newspaper building?” said Jeff Low, Founder and CEO, Stash Hotel Rewards. “The Magnolia Hotel Houston has a rooftop pool with killer views of the city against the Texas sky, a billiards room-turned-lounge—and a milk and cookie bar at bedtime. It’s ultra-sophisticated, the design is inventive, and it offers guests an intensely comfortable hotel experience.”
With Stash, members earn five points for each dollar spent on eligible room rates. Stash points never expire, and redemption is simple, without blackout dates or category restrictions found in many chain programs. And because members can redeem points at any of the Stash partner hotels across the U.S., Stash points are more useful than a currency offered by a single hotel or a small chain.
