All discounts and travel rewards apply automatically – you won’t have to do a thing! Just look for the Genius logo when booking to find and enjoy your savings.
There are currently 3 Genius Levels. Once you’ve met the required number of stays and unlocked a new level, it’s yours to keep and enjoy for life! It may take up to 72 hours for your status to update.
There are over 390,000 participating properties worldwide. Only well-reviewed properties are eligible to join the Genius program and are required to offer at least one discounted option. These properties can also choose to offer other travel rewards, such as free breakfasts and room upgrades.
No. While Genius discounts and rewards are offered on thousands of options at participating properties, they’re not guaranteed on every booking you make. Both participating properties and options with discounts or travel rewards can be recognized by the blue Genius logo. Check whether or not your option has a Genius discount or reward applied to it before booking your stay.
To progress in Genius, you have to complete a stay. That means a booking only counts toward your Genius status after you've stayed and checked out.
To unlock the next level, you have to complete the required number of stays within a 2-year period. If a stay was completed more than 2 years ago, it won't count toward your progress.
Priority support is an expedited Customer Service line, giving you direct access to a live agent. This travel reward is available on every booking you make, whether or not it’s a Genius option.
