Starwood and SPG frequently run promos, giving members an opportunity to earn bonus points and even a few free nights. The latest promotion from the hotel brand will reward you with one SPG Free Night Award after you spend three nights at Design Hotels, which are eligible for SPG benefits after their partnership began last year. You can earn up to two free nights as part of this promotion.

SPG and Design Hotels have been increasing the number of eligible properties quite frequently — there are some fantastic hotels on the list, including the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York and the ION Luxury Adventure Hotel in Nesjavellir, Iceland. While there are more than 280 Design Hotels worldwide, only some are currently participating in SPG.

Each free night award will be good for any Starwood property up to Category 5, such as the W in Beijing or the Aloft Manhattan Downtown, and must be redeemed by September 30, 2016.

To be eligible for this promotion, you must register by May 16 — existing bookings will be eligible for this promo as well. Your three eligible nights at Design Hotels must be completed by May 31, and don't need to be done consecutively.

Here's a list of Design Hotels properties currently in the SPG portfolio:

SPG members who book stays at participating Design Hotels directly through Starwood will be offered slightly different benefits than they receive at other SPG hotels and resorts. You’ll earn two Starpoints per dollar spent (three for Gold Preferred and Platinum Preferred, four for P75 and P100), as well as night and stay credit toward elite status and on-property benefits like internet access and bottled water in your room.

Members who pay with a Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express or Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express will earn two points per dollar at participating hotels, on top of the points you'll earn from the property itself.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
