WALLET HUB - Selected from 1,500+ credit cards for August 2022.

The best hotel credit cards help travelers maximize their free reward nights, either at a popular hotel chain such as Marriott or Hilton, or at any hotel. Qualifying for one of the best hotel credit card offers tied to a major hotel chain requires good or excellent credit, as offers for people with lower scores don't tend to be as attractive. The best hotel credit cards for bad credit or fair credit are just the best general-purpose rewards cards for people with such scores.
