There are currently promotions going on with number of chains. My personal choice for the June are the three Club Carlson promotions, Marriott’s promotion of a free night for every two stays capped at three free nights, and the InterContinental Hotels Group due to number of stackable promotions. The very confusing SPG promotions is going on depending what is the earning period that you will choose (no need to choose until the end of this month). Hyatt’s airline related bonuses are very good as well.

Starwood Preferred Guest
Starwood launched their much anticipated SPG Nice Choice promotion on May 1st 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. Note that you need to choose what you would like to earn and when by June 30th, 2012.
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.
Some renovated Sheraton hotels are also offering 1000 bonus Starpoints.
You can get 1000 Delta SkyMiles or US Airways Dividend Miles for booking a special (expensive) rate plan.
Starwood doesn’t offer straight status matches, but they can offer you a challenge:
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.
