If you’re looking to plan some summer travel, check out The Ritz-Carlton’s new summer promotion that was announced today. Between July 1 and October 31, you can earn one complimentary night at a Tier 1-3 property for every two paid stays, and you can earn up to 2 complimentary nights.

Earn up to two complimentary nights when you stay at participating Ritz-Carlton properties.

If you are already a member of Ritz-Carlton Rewards you can register for this promotion here by simply entering your membership number. If you’re not yet a member, you can enroll by following this link and by doing so you will be automatically registered for this promotion.

Per the terms & conditions, complimentary night certificates will be deposited into your account 3-5 business days after your second qualifying stay. They can only be used at Tier 1-3 hotels and will expire after one year. To qualify, your stay must consist of consecutive nights and only one room per hotel per stay will be counted. Be aware that certain hotels are excluded from this promotion including: The Ritz – Carlton, Millennia Singapore; Ritz – Carlton, Montreal; Phulay Bay; Dorado Beach; The Ritz – Carlton Destination Club; The Ritz – Carlton Residences; and Partner Hotels. Also remember that you can be a member of either Ritz-Carlton Rewards or Marriott Rewards, but not both programs, and this offer is only open to members of Ritz-Carlton Rewards – either existing members or new members who were not previously members of Marriott Rewards.

Ritz-Carlton has 5 Tiers of properties, but the complimentary night certificates are only good at Tier 1-3 properties and they expire one year from date of issuance. Still you can get some great values by using them at Tier 3 properties like The Ritz-Carlton, DubaiThe Ritz-Carlton Moscow, or The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua on Maui.

Despite the fact that the complimentary nights are only for Tier 1-3 properties, I actually think this is a pretty juicy summer promotion, and much better than some of the other ones out there like Hilton’s Daily Grand promo where you can earn just 1,000-2,000 bonus points per night, or double points with Starwood’s Double Take Promo.
