Starwood, the Sheraton / W / Westin / Aloft / St Regis etc hotel group, has announced its Spring promotion for Starwood Preferred Guest members.
Called ‘Earn Away’, it wins prizes for simplicity if nothing else:
Earn double SPG points on all stays between 1 May and 31 July
Earn triple SPG points on all stays between 1 May and 31 July if your stay includes a Sunday (Saturday in Middle East)
The only rules you need to bother about are:
Registration closes on 30 June, even though the promotion runs for a month more
140 hotels are not taking part
Only base points are doubled, not any elite status bonus
Unfortunately, a lot of UK hotels are on the non-participating list. These are:
- Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa, Edinburgh
- Le Meridien Piccadilly
- Sheraton Heathrow Hotel
- Sheraton Skyline Hotel London Heathrow
- The Park Lane Hotel, London
- The Park Tower Knightsbridge, a Luxury Collection Hotel, London
- Turnberry Resort, a Luxury Collection Resort, Scotland
- W London – Leicester Square
That leaves just the Aloft at the Excel Centre as the sole participating UK hotel!
If you think there is even an outside chance that you might have an SPG stay before the end of July, you should register via this website.
I will also add the promotion to our ‘Hotel Promos‘ page, alongside the current offers from all the other chains.
