Get Free Elite Status with ‘Small Luxury Hotels of the World’

Some links to products and partners on this website will earn an affiliate commission.

Last year, we wrote about how Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) were effectively offering free elite status to anyone and I’m pleased to report that the offer back!

SLH’s loyalty scheme is called ‘Invited’. The benefits just for signing up are fantastic – late checkout is probably the ‘elite’ benefit I actually value most, and who doesn’t like free breakfast?

‘Invited’ (just for signing up):

  • Member Exclusive Rates
  • Early Check-In (Noon, based upon availability at booking and check in)
  • Late Check Out (3pm, based on availability at check in)
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Daily complimentary breakfast for two
  • Member Exclusive Promotions

Didn’t you say free ELITE status?

Yes, I did. Until 31 December, Mastercard holders signing-up through this link are granted elite ‘Inspired’ status, which also includes a Birthday gift and room upgrades. 

Inspired (after 1+ stays) :

  • Birthday Gift
  • Room Upgrade (one category at check in if available)

Indulged (after 6+ stays):

  • Invite only events
  • Reward Night Voucher

I’m not sure whether existing members can have their status boosted too. The terms and conditions do not say but it was possible in previous years. Give it a try and let us know in the comments. Just sign into your account and then click on the Mastercard link above.

Bottom line

SLH work with over 500 hotels all over the world, and many of them are genuinely beautiful (though some are also genuinely pricey…), so it’s well worth signing up.

    I guess with some SLH hotels joining World of Hyatt and more joining in 2019 then your WOH benefits will trump the Invited scheme – shame you can’t use both! 🙂
