Would have been nice if the promotion is good for all SPG properties (maybe up to Cat 6) and Sheraton till Cat 7. Just a thought for the SPG marketing guys!

Just curious why only Sheraton and not the other brands under SPG?

This is a tough crowd. I like the promotion for the free nights. The other one for 1000 points on a 2 night weekend stay seems weak.

This is definitely much better than the original sneak peak.

However, it still doesn't come close to the Hyatt 25 nights/65k points promotion as those points can be used at all HGP properties on any day. In N/A, there are very few Sheraton properties that I would willing spend my weekend at.

Nevertheless, much better than anticipated. Glad to know that SPG will punch back at their competitors.

Award stays, including Cash & Points, do not count towards promotional offers.

Do some two-night weekend stays at Sheratons and get both.

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

For the Sheraton promo, I assume that Sheraton Suites are counted as Sheraton? What about Four Points by Sheraton?
No Four Points will not count especially since under the unpublished Point 11 of the 2020 plan they will be closing or converting all the Four Points properties. PLEASE

Looking at the room rates on this hotel (300 in June, 500-600 in June/July/Aug, <200 in Sep/Oct/Nov), category 7 seems a bit on the high side. There are more expensive Sheratons to redeem for that have lower category ratings.

Good overall offer though.

So a 5 for 1 isnt so great, better then nothing but nothing to chase after either
Sheraton focused, yes it is the richest program thus far. The promo you mentioned was actually a starwood program, not a Sheraton focused promo.

End of the Promo Period Stays

As always, I need a clearer definition of the promo period. I currently have a stay booked from 8/30-9/3. So it includes a Sunday night and 2 nights in the promo period, but the checkout and therefore the stay credits will come after the end of the period. Will it still qualify for the promotion?

This will be a nice promotion. I really wish the free nights had a longer shelf life than December 2015. Still, if I can find a good redemption for the free nights, I would definitely switch some stays to SPG.

Both promo valid concurrently, makes it a great time to stay at Sheraton!

I will certainly alter some stays to get the free nights and points. And definitely much lesser Marriott nights.
Glad it works for you, it doesnt for me, doesnt even come close. Till the economy tanks I dont expect anything to pop up that is worthwhile.

Again Im on my own dime and will get my Plat status again for who knows how many yrs running, and presently 9 away from requalifying. Cruching the #s it comes out its not a viable option for me, espeically being that they have to used on Weekends. I could sort of hear it for someone who isnt on their own dime.

Its not only SPG but practically all the programs after the devaluations of '15 make it usually not worthwhile for me to chase after their promos. This wasnt the case a # of yrs ago. With several LT status already achieved for me its now all about Loyalty but thats Loyalty to my pocket! So if there are 2 hotels and I end up with basically the same from both, then the rate will be the determining factor. So if *W is $10 more and I wont get anything near that back in benefits over say MR then Im staying @ MR

Between the airlines and hotels and even car rental companys alot of it is a suckers game, especially if you are footing the bill.

Loyalty begins and ends with my pocket

As always, this is covered in the FAQs.

If I check in before June 1, 2015, or check out after August 31, 2015, but some of my stay is in the eligible stay time period, does my stay earn the bonus?
Yes, as long as one night of the eligible stay is within the promotion period.

I have a conference in August where I'm currently booked at a Sheraton with points, but I could change to cash. This definitely changes the equation.
