If you are not particularly familiar with Sonesta hotels, I don’t blame you – I’m not either… But Sonesta’s portfolio of hotels is growing rapidly, mostly due to the “re-flagging” of former IHG and Marriott hotels who struggled during the COVID lockdowns. And with the major hotel chains seeming to focus more on cost-cutting than their “loyalty programs”, there might be a few readers open to considering something new.
I certainly hope to get around to doing a proper analysis of “Sonesta Travel Pass”, but for now this summer promotion looks promising…
To earn bonus points, you must:
- Book by August 15th, 2021
- Stay before September 30th, 2021
- Use the promo code STPBONUS
- Be a member of Sonesta Travel Pass and make sure your member ID is attached to the reservation
Assuming that all works as straightforwardly as it would with any other hotel chain, you can earn:
- 2,000 bonus points for stays of 1-2 nights
- 4,000 bonus points for stays of 3-4 nights
- 8,000 bonus points for stays of 5+ nights
