March 18 Update: Starwood Hotels accepts Chinese firm's bid, Aeroplan Carlson Hotels Bonus, Earn a Free SPG award night with Design Hotels

News, Tips & Tricks
Starwood Hotels
has decided to accept the new bid for them from the Chinese firm Anbang that we told you about not too long ago! This is huge news as for months we have been talking about Marriott's takeover of Starwood. It isn't over for Marriott however, they have 5 days to make a counter bid for Starwood and speculation is that they will come up with a new offer! Those loyal to Starwood and more importantly the Starwood Preferred Guest program will be keeping a close on this and keeping their fingers crossed that Starwood goes with Anbang as the beloved SPG would remain and not be integrated into Marriott Rewards, I know that's what I'm hoping for!

To further promote the integration of Design Hotels into Starwood and SPG, you can earn a Category 1-5 free night award for completing three nights at Design Hotels. The nights do not need to be consecutive and once achieved you'll get the free night award that you can use at any Category 1 to 5 hotel (try for 5 of course!) until September 30th.
