Upgrade to Jade is no longer a Luxury Circle amenity. But I hope you enjoyed your upgrade, breakfasts, and hotel credit!

You should speak to the agent who arranged the stay for you..... YMMV

For Diamond members: Does anybody know whether Luxury Circle benefits are in addition to Diamond benefits such as lounge access?

Yes, it should be in addition to it. As long it's not an overlapping benefit. For example, if Diamond has an upgrade at booking perk, it does not then mean you get 2 category upgrade with the Luxe Circle upgrade at booking. But if it's a perk that Luxe Circle doesn't already have (in your case, the Horizon Cub access), then you should receive in addition to it.

For transparency, I've only been informed by one property on this when I was booking for a Diamond client. So I'd assume it's applicable across the chain but who knows. Make sense for them to stack, though.

Can 4th night free promotions or other rate promotions combine with Luxury Circle benefits (if booked through a qualify travel advisor)?

If there's a Luxury Circle 4th Night Free rate, yes. What hotel and what dates so someone can check this for you.

Answer is "yes!" There is a "Luxury Circle Stay4 Pay3 Promo" that includes Luxury Circle amenities, and both the 4th and 8th nights are zero'ed out.

and in such stay-4-pay-3 or stay-3-pay-2 promos, it's indeed that say the 4th/8th nights are zero out in rates, hence you only get the paid nights as # night credit in Golden Circle? because with some other chains (eg Marriott? Hyatt?), I remember some of these promos and yet the total rate is spread across the stayed nights hence you get the stayed nights instead of paid nights as status night credit. any one can tell from their experience with such Luxury Circle promotions? thanks

Shangri-la Boracay

Shangri-la Boracay is stating they are moving towards Luxury Circle starting in April. I thought all Shangri-la properties were already under Luxury Circle. Am I missing something? Looking to book for June this year and don't know if I should wait and book since they are transitioning or find a Luxury circle agent now and book.
