Both Hyatt and Starwood had their new promotions starting at the beginning of May. Carlson Hotels, Marriott, and Ritz-Carlton don’t currently have promotions going on. I will continue to patronize Hilton and InterContinental Hotels Group due to their current promos and will probably max out the Hyatt’s airline related promotions as well. Personally I am very underwhelmed about the SPG’s summer promotion of 2012.
Accorhotels – Le Club
Accorhotels is offering triple points for weekend stays until June 10th, but these need to be booked by May 10th, 2012. Also there is an offer for 500 Le Club Accorhotels points for playing a game on their Facebook page (no Facebook account needed).

Marriott’s nest promotion starts on June 1st, 2012 and has the usual number of different variations.
Marriott Summer Promotion of Free Night Certificates or Bonus Marriott Rewards Points
Starwood Preferred Guest
Starwood just launched their much anticipated SPG Nice Choice promotion that hasn’t gone down too well. You can read about the initial leak, my ability to confirm that the leaked information was real, and the strategy that you should take. Essentially, this is a double or triple Starpoints promotion that is very weak compared to free night promotions that SPG was running during 2010 and 2011.
SPG Nice Choice Promotion Finally Launched
Starwood seems to be promoting their Sheraton brand hard these days. There are three different promotions for Sheraton stays going on.
There is a promotion of 1000 extra Starpoints for booking a Club accommodation at Sheraton hotels and paying using an American Express card.
1000 Bonus Starpoints for Sheraton Club Floor Bookings
Some renovated Sheraton hotels are also offering 1000 bonus Starpoints.

Wyndham has two promotions. One is for North America (US, Canada, and Mexico) and the other one is for rest of the world. In my opinion the rest of the world is better.
