Despite Donald Trump has been constantly brought up for almost as much as the frequency the Kardashians these days,It caught my attention of Trump Hotel’s Loyalty Program as it called— Trump Card Privilege Program.This post is a evaluation report upon both the hotel chain appearance and the program itself.
There are 3 tiers of the Trump Card Privilege Program,From Privileges Member which you get for free upon registering,and Exclusive Gold and Exclusive Platinum which each required 10 Stays or 25 Nights for Gold and 25 Stays or 50 Nights for Platinum which is a decent layout of many general loyalty program,another perk of this program is that you don’t have to wait until the end of the year to get your status evaluated rather they just grant you the status for the rest of the year as well as the next calendar year,which means you can maximise to obtain for almost (just almost) 2 year status benefits.
At all Trump Properties there are only 4 types of rooms—Guest rooms,One-bedroom Suites,Two-bedroom Suites and Penthouses.As the Chart below shows,you can see that the points is not revenue-based which means it doesn’t matter the price you paid for the room just simply the room category you have.
You will also get bonus points depends on you Tier Status.
Redemption for Award Nights
As the following chart shows all the redemption requirement for and only for Guest Rooms and One-Bedroom Suites,as well as One-Bedroom Suite Upgrade;the lowest cost is 70 points for upgrade at Trump International Hotel & Tower Panama and Trump International Hotel Las Vegas.
For Guest rooms and suites the lowest is Trump International Hotel & Tower Panama and Trump International Hotel Las Vegas as well for 150 points and 250 points,but the most expensive is Trump International Hotel & Tower New York,which again the Kardashians have stayed at.It’s 350 points for guest rooms and 600 points for one-bedroom suites.
After all,the Trump Hotels and Towers are considerably rather fancy compared to other hotel chains ,they are much more better than the Hampton’s and as they don’t build medium properties to show strong market appearance but rather focus on the high-end spectrum of the industry,but I wouldn’t say they are sharing top-tier customers with Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons yet,but they are defiantly up there somewhere.
The charts shows all the benefits you can get with different tiers,but to my opinion,it’s nothing really surprising enough to have a Wow effect,but you can definitely see yourself in needs of things like a 15 dollar mini-bar credit.
The Trump Hotels chain is not widespread but definitely international enough,they have properties from major US cities from the west to the east coast,and Hawaii,Panama and even Bali and Ireland etc.The cheapest rate for a guest room is around 200 dollar and the more expensive is up to around 600 dollar if you book early.As they don’t offer any other sort of points earning methods,neither can you do a status match,this has made the program rather stand still with no connections to the business travellers’ world,but I am pretty sure all the fans and fame Trump have gained through the heating politics have secure those properties with strong customer flow.
I believe what’s interesting is to see what’s gonna happen next,will there be expansion for the chain to other counties and continents ? As well as what the political future of Donald Trump Holds.
