Sofitel US Labor Day Double Points Offer

Sofitel has an offer for Double Le Club Accorhotels points for two night stay in the US between August 29 and September 3, 2013, that is booked by August 28.


This offer includes breakfast and double points. It is unlikely, however, the lowest rate for the dates in question. You won’t get the double points unless you book this specific rate plan.

Top Hotel Promotions August 2013


Here’s my pick of the five most lucrative hotel promotions that you can take advantage of this month. There are rarely promotions at the Ritz-Carlton and their promo for a free night after two stays is a good one.

1. Ritz-Carlton Free Night Certificate For Every Two Stays

Ritz-Carlton has a promotion for a free night category 1-3 certificate for every two stays between July 1 and October 31, 2013.

Hotel Promotions Update (Q3) August 2013


Here’s the monthly update on current hotel promotions. There are interesting promotions from IHG Rewards Club, Marriott & Ritz-Carlton.


Hyatt still doesn’t have a global promotion for third month in a row (long break), but launched targeted promotions for few stays. SPG is taking a break this month as well, but have already informed us about the Take Two promotion that starts on September 1. Not sure what Club Carlson is up to, as they only have promotion for bonus points in EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa).

Le Club Accorhotels Q3 Promotions August 2013


Le Club Accorhotels rarely, if ever, has global promotions for double or triple points, but they do have a lot of local or brand specific promotions for bonus points and/or discounts.


I have now decided to do a once a month digest type of all of them that I am aware of. If I have missed any current one from the list below, don’t hesitate to drop me an email to or leave a comment below with a link.
