I really like American Express Travel, especially since they ran a crazy promo last month where I snagged a bunch of hotel rates at 50% off (my Four Seasons Dublin stay was only $112!).

They are now running double Membership Rewards points for travel booked through them. If you have an Amex card that participates in Membership Rewards, this is a no-brainer, since most of the flights/hotels/cruises are the same, if not cheaper through Amex.
