“Chase Travel Launches Expanded and Rebranded Luxury Hotel Program: The Edit, Now Live for Sapphire Reserve Cardmembers”

Chase Sapphire Reserve® cardmembers now have access to a luxury hotel booking engine, The Edit by Chase Travel. Formerly known as the Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection, The Edit is an in-house booking platform for Chase’s premium cardholders. It offers elite perks at luxury hotels worldwide and was first previewed at the International Luxury Travel Market conference in Cannes, France last December.

The Edit aims to simplify travel planning by highlighting hotels handpicked by in-house experts. Cardmembers can enjoy benefits such as potential upgrades, daily breakfast for two, and the ability to earn rewards from both Chase Travel and participating hotel rewards programs.

The platform operates similarly to American Express’ Fine Hotels + Resorts, offering benefits like breakfast for two, property credits, and room upgrades based on availability. Chase Sapphire Reserve cardmembers can also earn rewards from both the hotel loyalty program they book from and Chase Travel.

The Edit will categorize properties under various categories, such as family-friendly resorts, spa or wellness retreats, and properties perfect for art lovers, design aficionados, or those seeking a high-end culinary experience.

Chase cardholders can also earn up to 8,000 points when they activate and book multiple travel components by May 31. Voyages by Chase Travel, offering elite benefits on cruise bookings, is expected to roll out for Chase Sapphire cardholders later this month.

Chase has also provided some emerging travel trends ahead of the launch. Some of the most-booked hotels for the upcoming New Year’s Eve holiday include the Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi, The Kahala Hotel & Resort in Honolulu, the Fairmont Banff Springs in Canada, The Wall Street Hotel in New York City and The Charles Hotel, a Rocco Forte Hotel in Munich.

The Edit appears to be more of a rebranding than a complete overhaul of Chase’s Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection. The added editorial categories and descriptions will be a user-friendly addition, and the overall program should continue to be a major perk for Chase Sapphire Reserve cardmembers.
