Hotel participation question

Am I correct in assuming that if a hotel offers redemption opportunities for free nights it means they award points for stays? Thank you.

At the bottom of the page at, click on "Terms & Conditions of the SPG Program."

You get the following page:

Roughly halfway down, it says "The following properties are not Participating Properties" followed by a list. Take a look at that list. Also note that it says: "We reserve the right to change this list from time to time without notice."

Sheraton Casino & Hotel, Robinsonville, MS
The Lanesborough, A St. Regis Hotel, London, United Kingdom
St. Regis Temenos Villas, Anguilla
Martineau Bay Resort, Puerto Rico
Le Parker Méridien Palm Springs
Le Parker Méridien New York
Le Méridien Baniyas Square - Dubai
Le Méridien Residence Deira - Dubai
Vistana's Beach Club, Jensen Beach, Florida
Le Méridien Moscow Country Club, Moscow, Russian Federation
Boston Park Plaza Hotel, Boston, MA
Tremont Hotel, Chicago, IL
Le Méridien Dubai, Dubai
Le Méridien Mina Seyahi,Dubai
Grosvenor House, Dubai
Le Royal Méridien, Dubai
Le Méridien Al Aqah, Fujairah
Le Méridien Fairway, Dubai
The Westin Mina Seyahi, Dubai
And a little farther below that, there is a heading: "LIMITED PARTICIPATION AT STARWOOD VACATION OWNERSHP PROPERTIES AND STARWOOD RESIDENCES. INFORMATION FOR EARNING AND REDEEMING STARPOINTS AND OTHER MEMBERSHIP BENEFIT LIMITATIONS," also followed by lists with explanations of the ways in which they do/don't participate.
Look at that also.
