Starwood Preferred Guest Asia Pacific Promotion

You need to register for this promotion by March 15th, 2012. The registration link is at http://www.spg-asiapacific.com/2daysofhappy/en/. The participating properties for earning the awards and for redeeming them are not exactly the same. Apparently, on the burning side these awards are capped to category 6 properties. Please note that not ALL the hotels participate on the redemption side i.e. W Seoul is category 5 hotel but you cannot redeem these promotionals awards there.

After having a quick look, it appears, at least on my case, that the SPG properties that I normally stay in the region are all on the participating properties list for earning purposes. It does, however, make sense to check before booking that the property is participating just in case. You can find the list of hotels where you can earn and use these awards at http://www.spg-asiapacific.com/2daysofhappy/en/participating.html.

You can see when the award is deposited to you SPG account by choosing My Account and then clicking My Earned Awards which is under Starpoints Awards. You cannot book these online, but rather need to call the SPG. These awards come from the same bucket as points based ones so it is easy to see whether they are available or not. When calling, you need to specify that you want to use one of your promotion awards. You can also refer to 4MCFN’s.

My favorite hotels for redeeming these awards night are the St Regis and W ones. Also, the participating properties in Sydney are rather pricey at the moment due to the strength of the AUD, and thus good use for these awards.

Participating hotels for earning the free nights:

Westin

Sheraton

W Hotels

St. Regis

Le Meridien

Luxury Collection

Four Points

Aloft Hotels

Participating properties for using the awards:
