Starwood, the Westin / W / Sheraton / Luxury Collection / aloft etc hotel group, has been sending out this interesting email to people who have joined up recently but never completed a stay:
Thanks for joining SPG earlier this year — now, let’s get to know each other better. We know you’ll love it. Simply register before September 30, 2013, and complete one eligible stay between August 1 and October 31, 2013, at any of our more than 1,100 hotels and resorts, and your account will be credited with a Free Night Award for you to redeem by December 31, 2013. Think night out in New York or beach time in Bali. This one’s on us.
Now, this is not a bad deal at all. It is especially good if you going somewhere with a very cheap Starwood hotel which you could use for a mattress run, or build an SPG stay into your existing schedule.
Your free night must be in Category 1-5 hotel. This would not cover all of their properties – they go to Category 7 – but it would include, for example, hotels like the Hotel Kamp in Helsinki (which is fantastic), the Le Meridien in Nice or The Westin Dublin (also fantastic).
If you’re not an SPG member, it might be worth signing up speculatively at spg.com just in case they run this offer again at some point …..
