Members of Starwood Preferred Guest can get 3,000 bonus Starpoints for Sunday night stays at participating New York City Starwood hotels through Dec. 30, 2010. An eligible stay is defined as one or more consecutive nights where one of the nights includes a Sunday and paying a qualifying rate (any rate that is eligible to earn Starpoints in the SPG program). There are no set limits to the amount of points you can earn with this promotion. Register by Dec. 24, 2010, at http://www. insideflyer.com/link/?2863
Bottom line: SPG members can redeem 3,000 points for a weeknight stay in a category 1 hotel or weekend in a category 2 hotel. If you stay just two Sundays at any of these hotels, you’ll have enough points for two weekend nights at a category 1 hotel. If you are looking for the best bargain in Manhattan to get the points, look to book The Manhattan at Times Square hotel, which is generally the least expensive.
