Wonderful promo--enough to rescue some nights from the jaws of Gold Passport this quarter. Thanks, William and SPG!

Anyone have a table that lists the resort fee for each property? Or, alternatively, a method for quickly determining an individual property's fee without too many page clicks?

Thanks William, this is an exciting promo. The link you posted listing the resorts in your first post appears to not work.

Well, in my defense, I did say that it would not go live until later today.

By no blackout dates, does that mean that as long as a standard room is available, we can use the award (just like a normal award redemption)?

While I would have preferred free weekend nights redeemable at any property, this is IMO the best Q2 promo of all the programs. I'll just need to find the time to make it to a resort location (or two ) before year end.

Yes, exactly the same as regular Free Night Awards.

Thanks William!

Disappointing that there isn't a promo during the gap, however at least there is a promo which is great! Like you said, it's not that you guys have quartery promos but rather promos that occur during each quarter. Thanks for the confirmation! I look forward to signing up to it! =]

So does this mean the new Cat. 6 Westin Playa Conchal in Costa Rica, which appears to be an all suite property without standard rooms, is technaically not participating in this promo?

The message above said that only Category 6 resorts with standard award rooms are participating. If this property is going to only have upgraded room awards and/or all-suite awards, it will not be participating.

Free Night Awards can be redeemed at over 200 resorts worldwide any day of the week through December 21, 2011. There are no limits to the number of awards you can earn, plus awards are combinable for a long stay, and there are no blackout dates.

The registration site will open later today at spg.com/getawayfree and a full list of resorts available for redemption can be found at spg.com/getawayfree/resorts later today as well. All category 1-6 resorts with standard rooms are included, plus the category 7 St Regis Punta Mita, Mexico.

Registration will run from today through June 30.

When you say ALL cat 1-6 "resorts" does that mean ALL "hotels"?

No? Free nights are redeemable only at resort destinations, not hotels or conference centres.

Yes, and I said that in the very first post. No doubt someone will post when they go live.
