SPG Design Hotels Update: Now 32 Participating Hotels

Starwood made an announcement back in October 2015 (read more here) that some of the Design Hotels (separate entity of which Starwood owns majority) affiliated properties would become SPG participating.

SPG Design Hotels

First hotels joined Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) in November (read more here) and SPG just sent out a reminder that more than 25 hotels are now in (actually 32 per their website).

You can access SPG’s website for Design Hotels here.

Remember that while you can earn Starpoints for Design Hotel stays the elite benefits are limited to free internet and water (not too too exciting).

  • 2 Starpoints per eligible US dollar spent (with a 50% bonus for SPG Gold and Platinum members, and 100% bonus for Platinum members with a minimum of 75 Eligible Nights)
  • Night and stay credit toward elite status
  • On-property benefits of internet access and bottled water in room
  • Gold Preferred and Platinum Preferred Members will automatically receive a Starpoints bonus as their Welcome Gift.

Other on-property benefits such as upgrades, late checkout, Your24 or Suite Night Awards will not be available at participating hotels. Free Night redemption is expected to be available early 2016.

Conclusion

One may wonder what might happen to this brand or Design Hotels share that Starwood happens to own once the merger with Marriott is completed. Earning Marriott Rewards points for Design Hotels stays doesn’t sound too exciting….

I stayed at one Design Hotels affiliated property last year (had no idea that they were part of the chain) and was satisfied.
