Since this would considered as one stay, the answer is "yes".

I havent read up on the fine print of this promotion so please bear with my silly question.

I have a somewhat long stay of 14 nights coming up at a Sheraton Resort Property in Orlando, including two full weekends (ie. I will be having Saturday & Sunday nights on both weekends).

Will I be getting only one 1000 Point Bonus or is there a chance I can perhaps double-dip....?

Thanks very much,

As a marketing man, I tip my hat to the marketing team for the spin on this one.

Still a decent promo, even if not the richest SPG promo.
If staying 15 nights at a Shearton for 3 weekend nights works for you, go for it. I wont go into all the math but for me its not worth it. And there are are very few "Sheratons" where Id spend a weekend.

For the Sheraton promo, I assume that Sheraton Suites are counted as Sheraton? What about Four Points by Sheraton?

So a 5 for 1 isnt so great, better then nothing but nothing to chase after either
I used mine for Canyon Suites at the Phoenician, IIRC in early December so it was a brief vacation from winter in the frozen north. The hotel did OK in that I added some (expensive) paid nights and had several dinners at in house restaurants.

Any properties that are not eligible for earning and/or redemption in this promotion will be explicitly highlighted in the Terms and Conditions once the promotion goes live.

This is all I have for you at this time, but generally-speaking Four Points is a separate brand from Sheraton and Sheraton Suites are within the Sheraton brand.

Did a 1 nighter there myself, very nice place.Then it was off to Sedona for 3 nights

Bout the only Shearton I can think of is HKG, but Id rather be across the street at The IC and Im there usually in Jan or Feb. And I have '16s stay already lined up for the weekend Id be in HKG(and the promo expires before I will be back there).

Now had it been stay 5 @ Sheraton and use it where you want with SPG, that would be a totally different creature.Im sure it will work for any number of folks especially those not on their own dime.But being on my own dime I can make things workout better for my pocket in other ways

Its alot better then what they have been offering till now, but its by far not the richest promo ever, even for Sheraton as during the other promos we earned credit staying at a Sheraton but were able to cash it out anywhere

Thanks for the update, Lurkers! ^

Nice to see free nights back, albeit with the brand restriction.

For the Sheraton Free Weekends, does multiple rooms (up to 3 rooms) count towards the qualification of the Free Weekend Nights promo?

I must say finally a SPG promo that is fun appeared. Has been quite a while.

If I book two rooms at the same property, does that qualify as two stays?

NO. 1 stay, but you will get X number of nights * 2 for night credit.

You mean on stay for this promo, so only one of the 1,000 point bonuses.

Fortunately we have a slightly better selection in Europe, plus in Asia where I may get some potential use. For North America, it is a definitely a little less exciting. Just depends on where you have in mind for the usage that drives the value here.

Having done the maths for me locally, I can get a positive return vs investment even on a 5:1 earn / burn rate. Without the cheap earning option, it would definitely be less attractive.

Bwaaahahaha!

As long as the hotel has a standard room available...
A new round of gamesmanship by Sheraton GMs/revenue managers will begin in 3, 2, 1...
