What Is HotelStorm?
Honestly I couldn’t find much information about HotelStorm, but they are a hotel booking website that I guess is similar to Hotels.com or Booking.com. According to their LinkedIn they focus on small and midsize businesses. I did a few quick comparisons to booking directly and on other hotel booking sites and prices seemed comparable or slightly more expensive on HotelStorm.
Update: Shopping portals also have up to 20% cash back (Topcashback is at 15%). I’m unsure if these will stack or not since you have to book through hotelstorm.com/amex but it doesn’t hurt to go through a shopping portal and then to the amex link.
If you spend exactly $300 then you’d be receiving a discount of 25% – that’s pretty good. Obviously that’s in an ideal scenario and most of the time you’d need to be spending at least slightly over $300 to make your travel plans work. You also won’t receive any hotel loyalty benefits if you book through a third party site such as HotelStorm or earn any elite night credits – so this makes the most sense if you’re booking a room at a non chain property or you don’t care about status.
As always, make sure you do a price comparison before booking. I personally like to look at booking directly and on the major third party booking sites that offer good discounts (e.g Hotels.com has it’s own rewards program and usually decent cash back rates through a shopping portal).
