Enjoy a rich new promotion exclusively for SPG® Pro travel professionals and executive assistants. Here’s how it works:

  • You book, we reward. Book any five eligible nights for other travelers at Sheraton® hotels and resorts worldwide. You’ll earn for stays that occur between September 1 and December 31, 2015.

  • The nights don’t need to be consecutive or for the same booking or traveler. Just add up the eligible room nights from multiple bookings at Sheraton hotels. For every five eligible nights you book, you’ll earn a Free Weekend Night Award, up to three, for your personal travel.

  • Redeem your Free Weekend Night Awards* through March 31, 2016, at any Sheraton hotel or resort (Categories 1–7).

  • Enjoy the flexibility of combining your Free Weekend Night Awards or redeeming them separately.

  • There are no blackout dates on free weekend nights — if we have a standard room available, it’s yours.

Note that this promotion overlaps the individual Sheraton Free Weekend Nights offer until the end of this month. During this period both the SPG and SPG Pro members can earn free nights for the Sheraton stays consumed.
