The free night certificates are valid for for stays at any SPG participating up to category 5 hotel and must be consumed by September 30, 2016.
Had I known about this promo day earlier, I could have stayed at the SPG participating Design Hotel tonight in Venice. Although there are more SPG participating Design Hotels now, they are still somewhat scarce.
Looking at my travel schedule until the end of May, I may be able to squeeze in nights in Singapore and Barcelona. There could be more SPG participating Design Hotels coming live before the end of this promo, however.
Design Hotels is a separate hotel “chain” of independent hotels that Starwood has majority owned already for couple of years. Some Design Hotels have decided to become SPG participating (not all though).
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Eligible member must register by May 16, 2016, 11:59 p.m. EDT. Members can earn one (1) Free Night Award to be used at participating Starwood hotels and resorts after they book and complete three (3) eligible nights at participating Design Hotels™ between March 16 and May 31, 2016 (the “promotion period”). Members can earn this Award up to two (2) times for up to two (2) Free Night Awards. This promotion is not transferable. Bookings made prior to the promotion period are eligible, but only eligible stays consumed during the promotion period will earn the promotional Award. Eligible nights do not need to be consecutive.
An eligible night is a stay with at least one (1) eligible paid night at any participating Design Hotels™ paying an eligible paid rate during the promotion period. An eligible rate is any rate that is eligible to earn Starpoints® in the Starwood Preferred Guest® program. Free Night Awards and Cash & Points Award nights are not eligible toward promotional free night earnings. A listing of SPG®-participating hotels and resorts and a description of eligible stays and eligible rates can be found at spg.com under the program terms and conditions. See Section 2.1 for the complete definition of eligible rates. Certain prepaid rooms where the booking is made through a third party (including but not limited to travelocity.com, expedia.com and booking.com) are not eligible rates and do not earn Starpoints or qualify toward promotional earnings.
Design Hotels™ Free Night Award will be credited to the member’s account within 2–4 weeks of the eligible stay posting to the member’s Starwood Preferred Guest account. Design HotelsTM Free Night Award can be redeemed for any participating Starwood hotel and resort Category 1–5 hotel for a standard room. Design Hotels™ Free Night Award must be redeemed for stays consumed by September 30, 2016. Members should call SPG customer service and mention Award ID D3HFN1–5 to redeem.

This promotion is not transferable and Free Night award may not be gifted.
This promotion may be combined with other Starpoints or Free Night promotions in market during the same time; however, earnings are exclusive of each other.
