Starwood has a rate plan for complimentary breakfast, free internet access, and 500 bonus Starpoints per day that are made under this rate plan by March 31, 2013. This offer is valid for Thursday to Sunday at participating hotels and all week at resorts. You can access Starwood’s page for this promotion here.
This promotional rate is 35% discount off of the rack rate. If the hotels BAR (Best Available Rate) is lower, you will then get the BAR rate. The rate code online is SPGPLS and SPG35B over the phone.
The winter promotion rate is lower than the best flexible rate. The AAA hotel deals rate, however, is 90 CAD less.
St. Regis Washington DC
The promotional rate is $285 per night and the lowest AAA rate is $213.75.
The winter rate is $109 and AAA rate is $92.65.
This rate makes more sense for those that don’t get complimentary internet access as part of their rate and cannot tether on their cell phones. I guess that this rate plan can make sense in some extreme circumstances that there are no other discount rates available.
