Terms and Conditions

CQ REWARDS LOYALTY PROGRAM TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Effective Date: October 22, 2018

These Terms apply to the CQ Rewards Loyalty Program (“Program”). The Program is provided by Club Quarters Hotels, Shared Mutual Services, LLC, their direct and indirect subsidiaries, direct and indirect parent entities, or affiliates (collectively, “CQ Hotels,” “we,” “our,” or “us”). The Program is a customer loyalty program through which CQ Hotels offers eligible individuals who choose to sign up for the Program (any, a “Participant”) the opportunity to earn points redeemable for rewards, as explained in these Terms.

From time to time, a separate contract, terms of service, or a similar agreement (Additional Terms”) may apply in connection with the Program – for instance, in connection with a special offer, promotion or sweepstakes. To the extent there is a conflict between these Terms and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control unless the Additional Terms expressly state otherwise.

Residents of the United Kingdom: Certain special provisions apply to an individual who is a “consumer” (defined as an individual acting wholly or mainly outside of their trade, business, craft or profession) residing in the United Kingdom (“UK”). These special provisions are contained in Appendix 1 (“Special Terms for Consumers in the United Kingdom”), which are a part of these Terms.

  1. Eligibility for the Program

    To be eligible to participate in the Program, individuals must be at least 18 years of age and be able to enter into binding contracts. By agreeing to participate in the Program, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age.

  2. Earning Points

    Ten points will be awarded per stay (and not on a per night basis), subject to the requirements and restrictions stated in these Terms. Points are awarded following check-out, typically within 24 hours. A “stay” is defined as the total number of consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of the number of check-in/check-outs. Separate reservations made in the same hotel for consecutive nights will not earn additional points.

    The following requirements apply to a stay:

    • Only stays at Club Quarters Hotels and its partner hotels (which include The Jewel facing Rockefeller Center, World Center Hotel, Hotel Boutique at Grand Central, Central Loop Hotel, River Hotel, and The Grand at Trafalgar Square) are eligible for points.
    • Points are awarded on stays that are booked directly through CQ Hotels (including by phone, or via our websites or mobile app), via corporate travel agencies, and corporate booking tools, such as Concur.
    • Without limitation, the following types of reservations are not eligible for points: airline crew reservations, "Night on the House" reservations, “Friends and Family” reservations, promotional or rewards rate reservations, and reservations booked through online travel agencies (e.g., Booking.com, Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire). CQ Hotels reserves the right to exclude additional types of reservations from eligibility for points in its sole discretion.
    • Points will be awarded only for stays that are registered to and consumed by the Participant, where the Participant’s CQ Rewards number was provided at the time of reservation or check-in. CQ Hotels may, in its sole and absolute discretion, award points for Participants who contact CQ Hotels promptly after a stay and provide their CQ Rewards number, the CQ Hotels location, and confirmation number.
    • Upon request, CQ Hotels will award ten points to a Participant who registers for an additional room that is consumed by the Participant’s “immediate family” (defined as spouses, partners, children, parents, in-laws, brothers, and sisters) who travels with the Participant for the Participant’s stay, provided that the additional room would qualify for points if consumed by the Participant. Participants may request credit for an “immediate family” stay by emailing info@cqrewards.com with their CQ Rewards number, the CQ Hotels location, and the confirmation numbers for both reservations. CQ Hotels reserves the right to request evidence of the family connection and to decline to award an additional point where CQ Hotels determines that the stay is not for immediate family.

    Upon request, CQ Hotels will award points for qualifying stays up to 30 days prior to enrollment in the Program. Credit must be requested for such stays within 90 days of enrollment. To request points for such stays, Participants may email info@cqrewards.com with their CQ Rewards number and the CQ Hotels location and confirmation number for the stay(s) for which points are requested.

    No points will be granted for cancelled or no-show reservations, regardless if cancellation charges were applied.

    When traveling on business, it is the Participant’s responsibility to comply with his or her employer’s policy concerning travel programs. Participants may not request or accept Points where prohibited by such policy. Information regarding a Participant’s accumulation of points for business travel is subject to disclosure to the Participant’s employer.

    Points have no cash value. The awarding and redemption of points are void where prohibited by law.

  3. Loss of Points, Expiration and Termination of Participation or Program

    CQ Hotels reserves the right to monitor and audit the profiles of any Participant, at any time and without notice, for compliance with these Terms and any other applicable terms or legal agreement applicable to the Participant.

    Points earned for a stay expire one year from the date of check-out for that stay and will be removed from a Participant’s account upon expiration. Points must be redeemed prior to their expiration; unredeemed points will not be reinstated.

    CQ Hotels reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, without prior notice, to (a) void points, (b) terminate a Participant’s participation in the Program, and (c) rescind reward redemptions, in the event of (i) fraud, (ii), misrepresentation, (iii) abuse, (iv) improper conduct, (v) violation of law, (vi) violation of or default under these Terms or any other agreement between a Participant and CQ Hotels; or (vii) failure to pay monies due and owing to CQ Hotels. Upon CQ Hotels’s termination of an individual’s participation in the Program, all points held by that individual be deemed voided.

    In addition, points may be voided if they are (i) sold, (ii) exchanged, (iii) hypothecated, (iv) issued to an ineligible person, or (v) or issued in contravention of a policy concerning travel programs of the Participant’s employer where the Participant is traveling on business.

    If CQ Hotels rescinds a reward redemption for a room reservation, CQ Hotels will make a reasonable attempt to notify the individual whose contact information is associated with the room reservation before the date of the reservation, if practicable.

  4. Redeeming Points

    A Participant may redeem points via cqrewards.com. A Participant may view a full list of redemption options and the respective terms and conditions associated with each redemption option via cqrewards.com. CQ Reward options are subject to change at any time, without notice, in CQ Hotels’ sole and absolute discretion.

    Points may not be exchanged or redeemed for cash, prizes or credit. Points are non-transferable. Rewards may be subject to additional terms and conditions, which will be disclosed.
