For the first time, Capital One is adding hotel reward programs to its transfer partner list. Until today, it has been dominated by frequent flier programs. The Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card, Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card, Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business and Capital One® Spark® Miles Select for Business cardholders can now redeem their miles for points in ALL (Accor Live Limitless) and Wyndham Rewards.
Capital One Hotel Transfer Partners
ALL is the new name for Accord’s loyalty program, which encompasses 34 hotel brands. Some of these hotels include:
- Fairmont Raffles
Wyndham Rewards includes brands like Wyndham Grand, Wyndham, La Quinta, Tryp by Wyndham, and Days Inn among others.
Beginning Feb. 4, 2020, Venture and Spark Miles cardholders can trade a minimum of 1,000 miles for ALL points. The rate will be 2 to 1 (1,000 Venture or Spark Miles for 500 ALL Rewards points). If they prefer Wyndham Rewards, cardholders can redeem a minimum of 1,000 miles. That rate will be 2 to 1.5 (1,000 Venture or Spark Miles for 750 Wyndham Rewards points). On another note, this addition adds to the Chase Sapphire Preferred vs Capital One Venture comparison.

Benefits for Cardholders
Both programs represent tremendous value through the breadth of brands that they offer. From city luxury and family-oriented resorts to value-focused hotels that are located in places where there may be few other budget options, there’s something for everyone.
One of the best reasons for having flexible point balances is that can be used in multiple ways. You are not tied down to one individual program with the Capital One Rewards program. Yes, sometimes, the search for frequent flier award seats can be frustrating. But when you have miles from a credit card that can be redeemed toward any flight as cash (and without blackout dates), it is much easier.
Others may find that free hotel stays are more valuable for their travel plans. Accor and Wyndham bring huge property portfolios around the world to the mix.
Previously, there were no credit card transfer paths to move points to the Accor or Wyndham programs. To take advantage of a free hotel stay with either hotel grouping, you would already have to have a large stash of points already accrued.
Furthermore, the cards that are eligible are also some of the best Capital One credit cards for travel available. They come with perks that include bonus miles for select purchases, unlimited earning abilities, and more.
As a little cherry on top, Capital One tells us that it is improving the transfer ratio to JetBlue TrueBlue to 2 miles to 1.5 TrueBlue points (1,000 Venture or Spark Miles: 750 JetBlue TrueBlue points).
Final Thoughts on Capital One Hotel Transfer Partners
In conclusion, this can be a huge plus if you want to redeem miles for hotel stays. However, if you have no travel plans in the near future, Capital One Venture, Capital One® Savor® Cash Rewards Credit Card, Capital One Spark and Capital One® Quicksilver® Cash Rewards Credit Card cardholders can still redeem their miles through Amazon Shop with Points.
