Feels like Christmas came early at Starwood (so to speak)! Or well, Cyber Monday, I guess. As previously reported, Starwood will be offering discounted room rates up to 30% off, for stays booked through Labor Day 2017. These rates will be available to book until December 4, so be sure to book your upcoming stays by then!
As a bonus – SPG members save an additional 5% on rates!
Visit the website here, or search directly on the hotel’s page – the discounted rates will come up when you search for stays that take place during the eligible dates.
These rates are limited to specific Starwood properties – not all properties may be participating, and those participating may be doing so with limited date availability.
Do these rates offer a better deal than regular rates? Short answer, I’d say yes.
The rates are fairly restrictive – payment required at booking, and no modifications allowed. However, these rate rules are no different from the Lowest Standard Rate you’ll typically find on the SPG website.
For the purpose of comparison, I took a look at the W Union Square in New York for the weekend of June 9 – 12, 2017, which typically goes for around $300-400+ a night. With Starwood’s sale rates, it’s coming out at $266 plus tax per night. I even threw in a corporate rate, which often offers better pricing than the Lowest Standard Rate and typically has a generous cancellation policy, and the sale rate still came out better.
Meanwhile, the W Paris, which typically goes for around 350€, is listing at 344€ for the weekend of July 7-11, 2017, which isn’t a huge discount. For comparison, I applied the same corporate rate as above and found the sale rate again beats this rate.
All in all it looks like the sale is worth checking out – it might not be hugely different from what you might regularly see, but you’ll likely save a few dollars when you book.
Will you be booking anything during Starwood’s sale?
