This post is a coda to yesterday's SPG App/BRG "next day booking" post. I decided to take a look and see whether the App is pricing higher for bookings beyond "next day," which was the subject of the prior post. And I am disappointed to report that as of today's date, the App is pricing rooms higher to SPG members using the App than non-members are paying through Kayak, Expedia, etc. Take for example the SPG Category 4 Hotel Westin Crystal City in Arlington, VA. Well-known hotel. Very close to DCA and the Pentagon. As of today, the App is offering $319.00 per night for a midweek 2 night stay May 26-28, 2015 as the lowest price of the simplest room. As of today, the SPG website, after member log-in, is offering the same price for the same room type and dates. $319.00. As of today, Kayak and Expedia have the same room/date combination at $250.00. The App tells you in written text when you use it that once you press the "Book" icon, you are being offered pricing at the "lowest standard rate." But the Kayak price . . . is there a mistake going on? Or is SPG calling the pricing to Kayak "something even lower than the Lowest Standard Rate"? Regardless of the answer, this practice is misleading. This practice creates a feeling of bad blood. As an SPG member, to be charged, in this example, 21 percent more while using the App, or while logged in and using the member website, than someone could pay on Kayak, is distressing. SPG needs to get a grip on this pricing practice and get it sorted.
