As a fun (and also informative) way to round out 2011 miles and points collecting, I am doing a short series on some of the best promos and personal miles and points accomplishments of 2011. There will be Starbucks prizes involved once I compile all of the best and worst of stories into one final 2011 post! You can learn more about what this will look like and weigh in on your favorite airline promo in this post.
Today we will be focusing on the best hotel promo of 2011! I have personally benefited from quite a few hotel promos this year. While there was no Hyatt Faster Free Night promo this year, there were still some other solid promos. My personal favorite this year was the Radisson 50,000 point offer. This was my favorite offer primarily because of the simplicity (something important for families). Just stay one night at a Radisson hotel and get enough points for a free night at any other Radisson in the world. The points also posted very quickly after I completed my stay. Perfect.
There were two other hotel promos that I also really liked. I enjoyed the Starwood Preferred Guest stay three nights get one night free at a resort promo that ran over the summer. I also did pretty well with the Hyatt Possibilities promo that ran during the late spring/early summer of this year. This promo awarded 10,000 Gold Passport points for completing five nights. You then earned 5,000 points for every two nights after the initial five. Since my husband had a lot of Hyatt travel during that part of the year, it really worked out pretty well for us.
Okay, those were my favorites for the year. Which hotel promos worked out best for your family?
