As I have just recently mentioned, there are two Design Hotels with limited participation in the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) programme in Singapore. Starwood has also unveiled a brand new promotion on the same day which allows you to earn a Free Night Award (Category 1-5) for every three eligible nights stay (up to a maximum of 2 free awards) at SPG-participating Design Hotels between now and 31 May 2016.
What this means for us Singaporeans is that we can stay in any one of the two SPG-participating Design Hotels for 3 eligible nights (meaning you have to book through SPG) and you will earn a Free Night Award that you can use at any SPG Participating Hotel (not necessarily another Design Hotel). This Free Night Award must be utilised by 30 September 2016.
If you are thinking of taking advantage of this promotion, check out Wanderlust Singapore for the most cost-effective way of earning the free night.
A brief search has revealed a room rate of S$149++ per night for a period of 3 nights. If you do choose to take advantage of this, you can essentially earn a Free Night Award (up to Category 5) by paying approximately S$525 (inclusive of taxes). Depending on where you redeem this Free Night Award, you can easily get great value out of doing this (plus you earn eligible nights too!).
