You will receive a hotel credit of $100.00 per night when you book a reservation for your next stay at one of 26 participating hotel and resort properties of the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts portfolio worldwide, where you will experience True Waldorf Service and an unforgettable stay — but you must book your reservation at least three days in advance of arrival at the hotel or resort property; and you are required to stay a minimum of two consecutive nights per stay.

If you are staying at a hotel or resort property in Europe, you will receive a hotel credit of $100.00 per completed night; and if you are staying at a hotel or resort property in Europe, you will receive a hotel credit of £65.00 per completed night. For properties outside of the three aforementioned regions, the prevailing exchange rate equivalent of $100.00 in local currency — as determined by the hotel or resort property — will be applied to the folio in the value of credit earned.

Example

I decided to find out how legitimate is this offer by checking out the room rates at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort property for two nights from Wednesday, July 26, 2017 through Friday, July 28, 2017. The room rate with this special offer before receiving the credit of $100.00 per night is $324.00 per night — whereas the lowest rate I could find for the same room is $284.00 per night with various room rates.

The total room rate after the $100.00 per night hotel credit is applied to the guest folio at the time of checking out is $448.00; while the least expensive rate totals $568.00 — which adds up to a savings of $120.00. The totals do not include the mandatory resort fee of $30.00 per night nor taxes and other fees…

…but this effectively means that at this particular resort property, you are not saving $100.00 per night as implied by the verbiage of this offer. Rather, the savings is actually $60.00 per night.

The cancellation policy at this resort property is 72 hours prior to arrival — regardless of the room rate which is selected.

Summary

“Hotel credits are earned per room, per stay” indicates to me that you may be able to receive a hotel credit of $100.00 per room per night if you book reservations for more than one room per night.

I also find the absence of an expiration date interesting, as that would indicate to me that this is an ongoing promotion until further notice.

Whoever wrote the terms and conditions left in that “Offer is subject to availability at participating Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts and Conrad Hotels & Resorts.” In fact, no Conrad Hotels & Resorts properties are included in this offer.

What I do not like are offers like this one where you are required to pay more to get a discount, bonus points, or hotel credit for the same room with effectively the same benefits and amenities included. In the aforementioned example with the Boca Raton Resort and Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort property, you are paying $40.00 per night for that hotel credit of $100.00 per night. In my opinion, that is deceptive at best…

…but you would still be saving $60.00 per night with that specific example; so the offer will still save you money — but definitely do your research and compare room rates and policies to ensure that you are benefiting from this offer should you decide to participate in it.

    This is why the Ritz Carlton Card is so awesome for people that tend to stay in higher-end hotels, because the 100 Credit is given simply for booking the cheapest room, for 2 or more days and you can upgrade to a club level room, 3 times a year, which saves you hundreds of dollars in meals , depending on the lengh of your time.
