Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) relaunched back in May its “Paradise Is Closer” 35% off award promotion for stays through March 5, 2018 (read more here) and has now added three more very high end properties to the list.

Here are the all participating hotels and required number of points this year:

Note that you can still get the fifth night free even when using this award type and save more on longer stays. These awards are not available online; you have to call SPG to book and remind them about the discount.

These are some of the most expensive and usually overpriced awards that you can find from SPG due to the “non-standard accommodations” clause that results jacking up the Starpoints rate to the skies.

SPG has now added three more properties to the discounted list that I mentioned earlier. First non-resort city hotel in Paris has made the list!

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
