Save Up to 35 Percent With Starwood Biggest Sale of 2016
T he Starwood Biggest Sale of 2016 gives you the opportunity to save up to 35 percent off of room rates when you book your reservations by Sunday, December 4, 2016 for stays through Monday, September 4, 2017 at greater than 1,100 participating hotel and resort properties worldwide — but you must provide your Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty program membership number in order to participate in this promotion; and you must specifically request “Our Biggest Sale of the Year” or use Rate Plan DAILYDI or SPGDI at the time you call 1-877-782-0150 or book your reservation via either a global contact center of Starwood Hotels and Resorts or the official Internet web site of Starwood Preferred Guest.
If you are not an active member of the Starwood Preferred Guest program in good standing:
- Your maximum savings will be 30 percent instead of 35 percent
- You will not earn Starpoints as a result of your stay; and
- You will not qualify for free access to the Internet in your room
Terms and Conditions
You must pay for your reservation in full at the time of booking it, as your credit card will be charged at the time of booking the reservation; and no refunds are allowed if you cancel your reservation, as your payment for the total room charge plus tax will be forfeited.
The rate is valid per room, per night based on single or double occupancy — unless otherwise stated — based on availability at time of booking the reservation; does not include additional per room, per night charges which may be imposed; and does not include tax, incidental charges or any other charges specific to the hotel or resort property. Extra guests may be subject to additional charges. Arrival day and length of stay restrictions may vary by hotel or resort property.
Promotional blackout periods may apply due to seasonal periods, special events, or extreme demand and normal arrival and departure restrictions apply. Starwood Hotels and Resorts reserves the right to alter or withdraw this offer at any time without notice; and other terms and conditions may apply.
If you are not member of the Starwood Preferred Guest frequent guest loyalty program, you may join the free program at the time of booking your reservation or at the official Internet web site of Starwood Preferred Guest.
An eligible stay is defined as one or more consecutive nights paying a qualifying rate in the same hotel or resort property — regardless of the number of times you check in or check out.
This offer is:
- Not transferable
- Valid for one guest room
- Not applicable to groups
- Void where prohibited by law
- May not be combined with any other promotions or offers
- Is subject to change
The words “up to” when describing the discount of 35 percent off of the standard room rate with the Starwood Biggest Sale of 2016 indicate that there are contributing factors as to how much you will really save, as the savings “can range from 10 percent to 35 percent or more, based on availability” — including the actual hotel or resort property and time and date of reservation as two of those factors; and a limited number of rooms may be available at these rates.
This sale is the Cyber Monday sale offered by Starwood Preferred Guest; and it is similar to the current “black Friday” sale offered by Hyatt and the current Winter Sale 2016 offered by Hilton Worldwide — aside from the participating locations and a discount which is five percent more…
…but as with the Hilton and Hyatt sales, this sale from Starwood Preferred Guest should still offer great values on room rates — but at the expense of tying up your money in rates which are restricted and not flexible. Do your research before committing yourself to booking a reservation through this offer, as once you pay, your money cannot be refunded.
There is a little “teaser” which states: “Coming soon: More choices, more savings from Marriott Rewards participating hotels.” What exactly that means is not known at this time…
