Luxury hotel loyalty programs you don't even have to sign up for

I often hear the question "why should I use a travel advisor when I can just book online myself?" There are many answers to this question, but one of the most tangible is the complimentary perks you enjoy at luxury hotels around the world. In short - you enjoy VIP status that you don't have to earn, and get WAY more for your money.

Below are just some of the perks you will receive when booking through Susan Sparks at Points of Interest Travel. These perks have been earned on your behalf through the preferred partner status I hold through my partnerships with Cadence® and Virtuoso®.
