Sheraton, part of the Starwood Preferred Guest programme, has launched an interesting promotion for anyone booking a club / executive lounge level room at its 350 Club lounge hotels this Autumn.
Until 2nd December, you will receive:
500 bonus SPG points for a one-night Club stay
1,000 bonus SPG points for a two-night Club stay
3,000 bonus SPG points for a 3+ night Club stay
There is no limit to the number of times you can earn the bonus. However, all stays must be paid for with an American Express card.
I value SPG points at a touch over 1.5p each based on recent redemptions. That would represent £45 of value on a 3-night stay, which might be enough to tilt you towards taking a club level room.
Because SPG benefits are not incredibly generous for SPG Gold (mid tier) members, a club room can be a decent option. You would receive free breakfast in the lounge (plus evening drinks and snacks). Sheraton also offers free wi-fi in its lounges – SPG Gold members can claim free in-room wi-fi, of course, but that means turning down the alternative of 250 SPG points.
Interestingly – for anyone who thinks it is only expense-account business travellers who book into the executive lounge – Sheraton claims that 46% of Club bookings are from tourists. 41% are from business travellers whilst the balance are on a combined ‘work and holiday’ trip.
Note that this promotion is ONLY available at Sheraton hotels and no other SPG brand. Full details and booking information can be found here.
