Zenit, the very top of the program, is for the folks who spend 60 nights in two or more Swiss˘tels within one year. This level comes with free upgrades, invitations to Swiss˘tel Circle events, a partner card providing the same status and benefits to their spouse, 48-hour guaranteed room availability without black-out dates as well as Zenit Awards, which they may exchange for free weekends away in Suite accommodations. Both the memberships for the ElevÓ and Zenit status are subject to renewal every 24 months.
Now, spending 60 nights a year in the same hotel brand does not excited our hotel-hopping selves but the rewards are pretty awesome. Free weekends in a suite? Yes, please!
And what also has us excited is the logo of Swiss˘tel Circle which uses Swiss-themed papercut circles full of travel gear like suitcases, cameras, wine, watches and even a smartphone. This type of silhouette cutting was apparently a popular handicraft in the 17th century when it was imported to Switzerland from Asia, thus keeping the Swiss˘tel Circle in touch with its Swiss roots. And also kind of bringing everything full circle as most of Swissotels are in Europe and Asia.
Neat! Wonder if they could send us a membership card just for kicks?
