I am Giving Away a Free Hotel Night Which You Could Win

Y ou might remember that I won a free night award for a Category 1–5 hotel property as an instant winner of a promotion from the Starwood Preferred Guest frequent guest loyalty program celebrating Design Hotels becoming the newest brand of Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Incorporated; and I had to use the award by Thursday, March 31, 2016.

Where did the time go?

I am Giving Away a Free Hotel Night Which You Could Win

I have not been able to use this award due to reasons beyond my control; and hanging up and calling back to extend the expiration date was unsuccessful — so I am giving it away…

…and you could be the lucky winner. The catch is that your stay of one night must occur by Thursday, March 31, 2016.

I was told by a reservations agent via telephone that the award is transferable and could be used for a room in any hotel or resort property around the world which participates under the brands associated with the Starwood Preferred Guest frequent guest loyalty program whose award category is 1 through 5. A test reservation was even done to ensure that it worked. I would be required to call to reserve the room for you if you are the winner. Ensure that you use an e-mail address through which I can contact you.

Terms and Conditions

Only one entry per person per e-mail address permitted. The Gate reserves the right to exclude persons from this giveaway suspected of entering greater than once or applying an unjustified advantage; and has the exclusive right to make final decisions about the prize, participation, and anything else associated with this giveaway.

The winner will be selected at random by using and its random numbering system and will be notified via e-mail message — as well as announced here at The Gate. By accepting the prize if you are the winner, you automatically absolve The Gate and Brian Cohen from any liability which may occur as a result of winning the free night; or for any technical errors which may arise in connection with this giveaway.

Entries must be received by 11:59 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time on Friday, March 25, 2016.


I realize that one week is not much time; and I apologize for that — I wish I could have done this earlier — but you can potentially save hundreds of dollars on a room; so if you are able to use it within the next week, please post in the Comments section below and I will randomly choose a winner.

My loss could be your gain. Good luck to you.
