If you like participating in hotel loyalty programs, you're going to be happiest with Marriott Rewards, according to a study release Friday by J.D. Power.
Marriott's program ranked first among such programs with a score of 707 based on a 1,000-point scale. Marriott includes such brands as Fairfield Inn, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites, Ritz-Carlton.
To assess the top players, J.D. Power, which is based in Westlake Village, weighed customers' satisfaction in five categories but weighted these categories most heavily: accountant maintenance/management and the ease with which rewards can be redeemed.
