Announcing our richest SPG Sheraton promotion ever, SPG Sheraton Free Weekends

We wanted all of you to be among the first to know that as of today registration is open for SPG Sheraton Free Weekends, our richest SPG Sheraton promotion in the history of the program.

Same miracle for me!

Last promotion I totally missed with clusters of stays immediately before and immediately after...

This one will work well for me... the no blackouts (plus all properties participating!) is a nice touch!

The all hotels are participating is 2 fold, seems All Sheraton Hotels will count towards the 3 for 1 free, and can be used only @ a Sheraton brand. All other brands wont count towards the 3 for 1 free nor to stay at ; STAY FIVE NIGHTS AT SHERATON — EARN ONE FREE SHERATON WEEKEND NIGHT.

5Sheraton
nights=1free weekend night
at any Sheraton

It can still pay off for some, but Id say its best to go over all The Sheraton(brand) hotels 1st to see if any works for you. Now if a person will be doing the stays anyways thats something else. Otherwise before mattress running for this its best to workout 1st where youd use the free nights

I don't buy your premiss. There are many excellent Sheratons; Sydney, Tel Aviv, the Dolphin, being comperable to the best of other brands, and many other Sheratons well priced and conveniently located, downtown and at airports all around the world. Not saying they're the end all and be all; but I'll have no hesitation taking the free nights thank you very much.

Cheers,

Cheers,
Dont forget a nice weekend @ The Sheraton Maui or Waikiki (not The Princess). btw what premiss? All I said was for people to keep in mind they must stay ONLY at Sheratons in order to earn the free nights at a Sheraton.I also said for those who will be doing it anyway its nice, while I wasnt sure its worth doing matress runs in order to earn the free nights alone.

Yesteryear when it was Stay 3 get 1 free and at any SPG hotels it was definitely worth doing matress runs for most folks. Unless a person can find a very cheap Sheraton Im not sure doing 15 mattress nights is worth it unless the Stay credits are needed and then it wont be consectutive either. It just might be cheaper to book the Sheraton for the weekend nights instead of getting them by buying 15 nights. Since Im only 6 Stays away from requalifying it doesnt work for me.Happy it will workout for you as well as anyone else that it works for.

Thank you and your team, William. I think that this is a great promotion, even if I can't use it!!

One question, -- when you say "at any Sheraton," I usually stay at a Sheraton branded Luxury Collection property, Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit. Do these hotels count as Sheratons? If so, I'll have more than enough nights to max this promo out. If not, this one won't work for me at all.

Thanks in advance for answering this for me.

Given that I 1) haven't been eligible for any of the other promotions going on right now and 2) don't have any plans to travel to the one Tribute property out there, looks like Sheraton will be getting all my stays through September.
