Are you a four-star hotel traveler, or do you go for simple, clean and convenient? Whatever you’re after, these two card offers can get you free rooms in record time — earning 75,000 welcome bonus points business and personal travel after meeting a modest spending level. They give cardholders access to low rates, upgrades and free rooms within a network of more than 6,700 hotels worldwide.

The options for this rewards program are stunning, especially after a recent merger between Marriott and International Hotel Group. Under this umbrella are the Ritz-Carlton chain, W Hotels, Westin hotels, Courtyard hotels, Residence Inns and many more. Here are the best hotel rewards cards to come along in a long while:

Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card

Marriott/ Visa

Why we love it: This card rakes in 75,000 bonus points after hitting a spending threshold of $3,000 within the first three months, and then just continues to reward the cardholder — with 6 bonus points per dollar spent at hotels in their massive network and a free room on every anniversary with the account.

Highlights of this offer:

  • Earn 75,000 bonus points after spending $3,000 on this card within the first three months of opening the account. (That covers up to seven nights, depending on the hotel you choose.)
  • Every year, on your account anniversary, get a free night award (up to a 35,000 point value).
  • Earn 6 points for every dollar you spend at the hotels in the Marriott Bonvoy network.
  • Earn 2 points for every dollar spent on all other purchases.
  • Earn unlimited reward points.

Note: This card has a $95 annual fee.

Highlights of this offer:

  • Earn 75,000 welcome points after using this card for $3,000 in purchases within the first three months.
  • Earn 6 points per dollar spent at hotels in the Marriott Bonvoy network.
  • Earn 4 points per dollar spent at American restaurants and gas stations, as well as cellphone services from U.S. providers, and 2 points per dollar on all other eligible purchases.

Note: This card has an annual fee of $125.
