Starwood Hotels

Starwood is the company that owns and runs famous Hotel brands like Westin, St Regis, W Hotels and more but their best brand for vacationers with families is the Starwood Vacation Ownership Brand which offers high end Timeshare rentals and Timeshare resales to well heeled travelers

Starwood Promotion: Get 40% Off Every 2nd Night (Americas)

Starwood is running a promotion which is offering 40% off every second night at stays in various properties throughout the Americas. There doesn't appear to be an end date for this promotion in the terms and conditions so it could be around  for some time or disappear as quickly as it appeared.

Starwood Will Open A New Luxury Resort In Cabo This June

Back in 2015 Starwood announced that, in collaboration with its hotel owners, it was investing $300m into bringing its Luxury Collection of properties up to modern luxury standards.  The $300m was split between renovating existing properties and bringing new properties into the fold and we'll soon see one of the very newest Luxury Collection properties open its doors. Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, broke ground in June 2015 and was meant to be completed by June 2017 but Starwood has just announced that the property will open in June this year (2018)....so just a year late!

Starwood’s Cyber Sale 2017 Is Now Bookable….But It’s Terrible

Earlier I posted details of what Marriott is attempting to pass off as it's biggest sale of the year (it's woeful) and now it's Starwood's turn to dazzle or disappoint with its Black Friday/Cyber Monday offering for 2017.

REMINDER: 35% Off Awards At Some of Starwood’s Most Expensive Properties

For the last couple of years (it may be longer) Starwood has run a quiet but popular promotion which sees some of the chain's most expensive properties (from an award cost point of view) reduced in price by an impressive 35%....and the promotion is still running.

Starwood’s Fall 2017 Promotion Is Out – SPG Explore More

Now that Marriott owns Starwood the two are coordinating their promotions a lot more closely (to the extent that both released their fall promotions at the same time) so, after having seen the disappointing Marriott MegaBonus promotion, I was a little concerned at what Starwood would offer.

Starwood Offers Preview Of Cyber Monday Sale

Marriott & Starwood (now the same company) have both announced the dates for their Cyber Monday sales event and both have also offered up a sneak peek into what travelers can expect in their respective sales. I'll post Marriott's preview in a separate post which will be live at the same time as this one.

Bonus Starpoints With Starwood Promotions

Starwood is running a couple of promotions right now that offer SPG members the chance to earn some bonus Starpoints. The "Suite Temptations" promotion offers discounted rates for anyone looking to book a suite at one of Starwood's worldwide properties as well as bonus Starpoints per stay and the "5,000 More Reasons to Stay" could be a nice promotion for those with a lot of hotel nights to book between now and the end of the year.

W Dubai – Al Habtoor City Opens Its Doors

Starwood (or should I now call it Marriott?) has announced the opening of the first W Hotel in the UAE with the official launch of the W Dubai - Al Habtoor City. The property is located around 20 minutes drive from Dubai International Airport and 35 minute away from the Dubai Marina. The Burj Khalifa is only around 2 miles away as the crow flies but, thanks to the convoluted road system in the area, it's still around 15 minutes drive away.

Starwood Adds 10 More Design Hotels To SPG & Some Look Fantastic!

In the past week Starwood has added 10 more Design Hotels to its Starwood Preferred Guest rewards network. 8 of the properties are found in Asia, one in Europe and one in the Middle East. It was around this time last year that Starwood announced a plan to incorporate the Design Hotels brand into its hotel portfolio.....but with a slight twist thrown in. Unlike Starwood's other brands (W Hotels, Westin etc…) the Design Hotels continue to operate independently of Starwood and continue to be managed by their leadership team in Berlin.

Starwood Adds Luxury Collection & Tribute Portfolio Properties In Singapore

With all my recent traveling I've had a bit of hotel news pile up on my desk so, now that I have a little bit more time, I though I sort through the latest hotel announcements and pick out the more interesting ones. The news that will probably be of most interest to travelers right now is the announcement from Starwood that it is adding two Singapore properties to its portfolio.
