Starwood announced their new promotion today, which is a double Starpoints and bonus points for weekend nights. It’s a decent promotion, but nothing mind-blowing- I wish they would get a little more creative or give choices (like the amazing You Choose promotion of 2008). There’s also a list of non-participating properties, but it isn’t nearly as substantial as the opt-outs from the current Double/Triple promotion. While this promotion is better than nothing, I guess this may be a sign that the uber-generous hotel promotions are slowing down now that the economy is picking up. I hope that Hyatt bucks that trend and offers a Faster Free Night promotion in Q1!
