March 4, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Some major hotel chains are changing their loyalty rewards programs, which could cost you more money.
Marriott, Hilton, and Starwood are raising the number of points needed need to cash in on their rewards programs.
Starwood, which owns Westin and "W" hotels, is raising the combined points and cash needed to stay at most of its hotels by 25-percent. Hilton is nearly doubling the points needed to book a room at popular hotels during peak seasons.
Marriott says it will increase the points for its program after May 15.
