    Im finding only part of the small print of this promo.... cant seem to find where the validity dates of this are published. Im following the links and cant get the system to honor the promo for a Jan 2014 booking....

    Any tips or leads would be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Alex

    It's offered on an availability basis, so not all hotels participate and those that do participate might not offer the deal on all dates. There doesn't seem to be any option other than experimenting with these codes when trying to book on SPG.com. Sometimes changing dates a bit, or room type, seems to help.

    Yes, but the Z5R rate is offered at the discretion of the properties offering it. My best guess at the moment is that the various directors of revenue management have not decided when and/or if to offer it, so my advice is to check a little closer to your arrival date.

    Thanks William.... just to make sure I understand how this works... its basically a roll of the dice as there is no way to know for certain when and if the directors will choose to offer it...? Also, when the folks that decide do make use of this promo, is it announced and can someone sign up directly with SPG to get notified...? Thanks for you patience with my various questions.

    Cheers,
    Alex

    That's the way it is with just about every rate except for RACK and standard awards (provided a standard room is available). They are offered when the property decides to.

    Not that I'm aware of. There used to be a web site promoting the Z rates, but that was ended some time ago. Now, you pretty much have to use the Promo code search at spg.com to find them.
