You join Select Guest® as a Gold Level member. Tier Credits are earned on qualified nights at a qualifying rate. Earn at least 10 Tier Credits during a calendar year to earn Select Guest® Platinum Level. Earn 30 Tier Credits during a calendar year earn Select Guest® Black Level and even more exclusive benefits. View the benefits for each level here.

Benefits of membership are only awarded on Qualifying Stays. Qualifying means that your reservation is made directly with us (via web or phone) and not through sites such as Hotwire.com, Priceline.com, Expedia.com, Hotels.com, Travelocity.com, Orbitz.com, etc.

Tier status is earned or renewed annually based on the following qualifying stay criteria (January 1 through December 31):

  • Gold Level: 0-9 Tier Credits
  • Platinum Level: 10-29 Tier Credits
  • Black Level: 30+ Tier Credits

As soon as your account is credited for the required number of Tier Credits to achieve the next tier level, your membership is upgraded and you can start enjoying the additional benefits.

At the end of each year, every member’s Tier Credits are reviewed and his or her Select Guest® membership level is adjusted based upon the ability to meet the specified credits required of each tier level.

For Example, if a member achieves Platinum Level in August, that level is maintained through December 31 of the following year and is only lost should the member not achieve the minimum tier credits (10) required for Platinum Level in the following year.

Select Guest membership cards are available in your Membership Materials, downloadable on your online My Account Page.

DISCOVERY

DISCOVERY is about making your travel unforgettable. Exploring behind the scenes and beneath the surface. Experiencing unique activities in authentic local settings, all while receiving recognition across 36 Global Hotel Alliance Brands with over 500 resorts, palaces and spas in 78 countries.

The DISCOVERY loyalty program is designed with you in mind. As a Select Guest member you earn Tier Credits globally and enjoy extended benefits from DISCOVERY. Our knowledgeable teams at each GHA property will help you discover local culture in a way that you may not have before.

Local Experiences are the key benefit of the DISCOVERY loyalty program offered to Platinum and Black Level Members. A Local Experience is an activity that is authentic to the local culture and that is not easily available or accessible to the general public. It is exclusive access above and beyond an activity that you would plan on your own.

Learn more about earning and redeeming Local Experiences at here or DISCOVERYloyalty.com.

Your Select Guest membership benefits remain unchanged, but you are also automatically enrolled in DISCOVERY and have global recognition. Here are some key points:

Membership Number. Your membership number remains the same and is recognized across all GHA brands.

Member Level. Your membership level earned through Select Guest is recognized by all GHA brands.

Criteria for Platinum and Black Level. Earn your next level faster. Your qualifying nights at all GHA brands will earn Tier Credit towards your next level in the Select Guest program and is recognized when staying at another GHA property. You need 10 Tier Credits to reach Platinum Level and 30 Tier Credits to reach Black Level, which all must be on a qualifying rate in a single calendar year. Once earned, you will have a minimum of twelve months to enjoy this new level.

Online Account Access. The same account login used on omnihotels.com will also allow access to your account summary on gha.com. If you do not have an online account log-in, please create your log-in now for use on the Omni and GHA websites.

Free nights are a benefit which is only earned and used when staying at Omni Hotels & Resorts.

Free night certificates earned as a member of Select Guest are redeemed only at an Omni hotel or resort.

While not all Select Guest benefits are available globally, core benefits are available across all GHA brand hotels. Alternatively, most GHA brands will offer additional benefits unique to that brand.

Defined Terms

  • Qualifying Stays
    One “Qualifying Stay” is a stay of one or more consecutive nights spent at the same hotel (whether or not a member checks out and checks back in again), during which a Qualifying Member pays a Qualifying Rate for at least one night during the stay. If a Select Guest® member is not named on the reservation prior to departing the hotel, the stay is not a Qualifying Stay. Stays prior to six months from today are not Qualifying Stays. Mokara Hotel & Spa, Villas of Amelia Island Plantation, The Lodge at Bretton Woods, and Townhomes at Bretton Woods do not participate in the Select Guest® program, therefore stays at these brands are not considered a Qualifying Stay. Stays not eligible to receive program benefits include those booked through an online travel website (some examples include, but aren’t limited to Hotwire, Priceline, Expedia, Booking.com, Hotels.com, Travelocity, or Orbitz, etc), traditional wholesale rates, airline rates.
  • Qualifying Rates
    A “Qualifying Rate” is a rate available to the general public for such night, but specifically does not include the following rates: (1) tours series rates and charter rates (2) room rates for airline staff and crew where rooms are pre-booked and paid for by the airline or directly; (3) travel industry staff rates; (4) any employee rates, employee family or employee friends’ discount rates; (5) other discounted rates; (6) any complimentary, free, traded or bartered night stays, or any stays in connection with gift certificates or other awards or vouchers; and (7) bookings made through an online travel Web site (i.e., Hotwire, Priceline, Expedia, Booking.com, Hotels.com, Travelocity or Orbitz). Omni Hotels & Resorts shall determine if a rate is a Qualifying Rate in its sole discretion.
  • Qualifying Members
    A “Qualifying Guest” is a registered Select Guest® member whose name appears on the room reservation. Associations, corporations and groups are not Qualifying Members. If a Qualifying Member reserves and pays for more than one room, free night awards are earned on a maximum of two rooms during such stay. Free night awards may not be transferred from one member to another. Only one member per room, per stay may receive credit. If two or more members occupy the same room, credits will be awarded only to the member whose name appears on the room reservation. If more than one name is on a single room reservation, awards will be credited to the member whose name appears first. Members who have any past due balance owing to Omni Hotels & Resorts forfeit any awards earned. Employees of Omni Hotels & Resorts and its affiliates are not eligible to earn free night awards.

Your free night award should post to your account after your Award Credit balance reaches 20. Certificates can take up to seven days to become active and available for use.

Yes, free nights must be reserved prior to arrival. Free Night Awards cannot be redeemed until the award is posted and available on your account.
Award Credits earned do roll over. They will continue to roll over with at least one stay at Omni Hotels & Resorts in the previous 24-month period.
Free nights redemption includes taxes and resort fees if applicable. You are responsible for paying for meals, incidentals and any other costs associated with the reservation or stay. Free Night Awards cover food and beverage items at our all-inclusive resorts for up to two people per night. Additional charges may apply for more than double occupancy.
