I use Hertz mostly, but also Enterprise, Budget, and Alamo - just depends on the rates/locations. I usually try to find a nice Comfort Inn hotel to stay in. They are not too bad (and believe me, I have stayed in some BAD hotels) and most include a decent breakfast. Lately, I have been getting them to apply my stay to my Choice Awards account because they are running their stay 2 times, get a free night offer again.
With our SwaBiz account, I am still getting at least 2 credits per trip (4 for round trip) and sometimes they run promotions where I get 3 per trip (6 per round trip).
I'm sure that Southwest will either be buying out ATA in the near future, or just opening up their own lane to Hawaii. Southwest is way too popular and profitable of a carrier not to be growing - just look at how they have expanded over the past couple of years while those around them are bankrupting. My guess is that if/when either of these happen, you will be able to use Rapid Rewards to get to Hawaii, but it will cost you 2 of them to do it. ///Just my speculation.
