Back in 2014, Starwood (owners of St Regis, Le Meridien, Westin, W, Sheraton, Aloft etc) ran a ‘3 for 2’ promotion in the Middle East in association with MasterCard. I took advantage of it when I was in Doha last year.
The promotion is back for 2015 – it has been running for a while, it seems, in a very low key way.
For 2015, it is valid for ‘3 for 2’ stays across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
In theory you should pay with a MasterCard although that does not appear to be essential.
You need to book a 3, 4 or 6 night stay, which will price with 1, 1 and 2 free nights respectively.
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Looking at the Sheraton Grand Edinburgh for September 4th to 7th, the lowest price under this promotion is £179 per night. However, the hotel is currently on the SPG Hot Escapes promotion and under that rate is it £177 per night.
At the St Regis in Doha (photo above) for the same dates, things are more promising. The ‘3 for 2’ rate is QAR 789 compared to a cheapest standard rate of QAR 944. The MasterCard deal offers genuine value here.
I will add a link to this promotion to our ‘Hotel Promos’ page under the list of SPG offers.
