A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Starwood’s annual hotel category adjustments. Not surprisingly a lot more hotels went up in cost than down, so this is the last day to book stays before some hotels change their categories. You can see which hotels go up a category and which hotels go down a category here.
While the categories for some hotels change tomorrow, keep in mind that this is all based on when you book and not when you stay. So if you have a future stay planned, check to see whether your hotel goes up a category or not, so you can lock in a booking if it does. Conversely, if your hotel goes down a category tomorrow, you should be able to rebook to save some points.
I locked in a stay at the W Santiago for September for 10,000 points per night, given that the cost goes up to 12,000 points per night tomorrow.
Is anyone else making any last minute bookings in anticipation of the changes?
