Palo Alto, CA: Stash Hotel Rewards, the nation’s largest point-based loyalty program for independent hotels, today welcomed three California hotels to its network – The Domain Hotel, POSH Palm Springs Inn, and Quiet Creek Inn. The new partnerships expand Stash’s footprint in California to a total of 26 properties. Now, travelers can earn and redeem Stash Rewards points at the state’s most distinctive boutiques, resorts, and inns.
“These new partnerships give travelers even more opportunities to have the true California experience they’re seeking,” said Jeff Low, Founder and CEO of Stash Hotel Rewards. “From mountains to beaches, high-tech to totally unplugged, it’s all here in California, and it’s all here in the Stash network. Chain hotels can never deliver the authentic character that these independent hotels offer their guests.”
The new Stash partner hotels offer travelers the opportunity to experience three completely different aspects of California.
The Domain Hotel is a hip, relaxing haven right at the center of the high-tech hub, Silicon Valley. Guests are greeted with a complimentary glass of wine and atrium skylights, calming aromatherapy, and soothing plants help set a peaceful mood. When work needs to be done, large business spaces, ergo chairs, free Wi-Fi, and a helpful shuttle to local companies makes it the ideal home base.
If the tech scene of Silicon Valley isn’t for you, POSH Palm Springs Inn offers an intimate, nine room all-inclusive resort with California King beds, 500 thread count linens, plush, monogrammed robes, sophisticated decor and luxurious amenities. The Art Deco bed and breakfast surrounds a welcoming pool with a bubbling saltwater hot tub. Complimentary luxuries like martinis, appetizers, hot meals, and ice cold drinks help make this hotel a stress free environment.
The Quiet Creek Inn in Idyllwild, a hidden Southern California mountain community, is only a quick trip up the scenic “Palm to Pines” highway. Set in a town known for its art, nature, friendly culture, and serenity, guests can either cozy up to a fire in their custom built, personal cabins alongside Strawberry Creek – or go explore the area’s popular hiking trails. This storybook cabin community is perfect for any occasion – including weddings, business retreats, or romantic getaways.
The unique loyalty program also helps independent hotels in California and around the country to level the playing field against larger chain properties by providing a valuable incentive for reward-minded travelers.
“Joining Stash made sense from a business standpoint for a number of reasons,” said Marc Kassouf, the General Manager for Quiet Creek Inn. “The Stash brand is an indication of quality. The affiliation will help us increase visibility among like-minded travelers. Plus, people love to earn free trips – and now we can offer new and returning guests that opportunity.”
Travelers can join Stash for free at www.stashrewards.com.

Stash partner hotels also provide members with exclusive travel deals.
