It allows us to share with our members a memorable getaway to several of our distinct properties around the world,” said Mary Kay Caschetta, vice president, Loyalty, Americas. “From cultural capitals to exotic beach destinations, our members enjoy a unique guest experience at each of our hotel brands and will benefit from an even greater selection of properties as we continue to expand our global footprint.”
