Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Friday, 5 September 2008

MasterCard and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific have launched a complimentary weekend promotion. The promotion, now in its second year, has been expanded to include an additional 30 hotels and resorts this year. The promotion gives all MasterCard cardholders and Starwood Preferred Guests (SPG) the chance to receive a complimentary weekend stay at Starwood Hotels across Asia Pacific, under the brands Sheraton, Westin, Le Meridien, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection, aloft, Four Points by Sheraton and W hotels in established and emerging cities.

Travelers who are not SPG members can also register for the promotion by joining SPG at no cost. MasterCard credit and debit cardholders in Asia Pacific who are Starwood Preferred Guests will receive a complimentary weekend (consecutive Friday and Saturday) stay at any non resort hotel of Starwood Asia Pacific if they have stayed at any Starwood property in Asia Pacific for at least three occasions during the promotional period. This promotion is valid from 1 October until 31 December 2008. Free weekend stays can be redeemed from 1 November 2008 and 31 January 2009.

We are excited with this great opportunity, in collaboration with MasterCard, to provide our guests with memorable experiences during their travel in Asia Pacific. We want to make an emotional connection with our members that go beyond the world of upgrades and free breakfasts. This promotion allows us to do just that, by presenting them with an opportunity to take a short break during the weekend and visit our properties in Asia Pacific with their loved ones, said Nelli Yong, Vice President, Brand Management, Asia Pacific, Starwood. This promotion is a great reason to travel and experience the diverse culture that destinations in Asia Pacific have to offer.

The promotion was well received last year and destinations which are most popular amongst members taking advantage of their weekend stays included Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Beijing, Shanghai and Seoul.

To automatically stand a chance to receive a complimentary weekend stay at selected Starwood hotels in Asia Pacific, MasterCard and SPG cardholders must register and make their room reservations via or via the Starwood call center and mention the promotion code 'MFW'.
