Save at Starwood hotels: your birth year equals your rate

Is it agist? (Or rather, reverse agist.) Or simply paying due respect to your elders?

In a new promotion at Starwood hotels, what you pay per night is determined by your birth year. You pay the last two digits of your birth year on your second and third nights. For example, if you were born in 1950, you’d pay $50/night.

Random, right? But hey, it’s a deal if you were born in 1935. Actually, I suppose it’s still a deal if you were born in 1980.

The rate is set for the first night (approximately $150-200, depending on the specific hotel). The promotion applies to the second and third nights, but not to additional nights after that (you’re subject to the best rate available).

Yep, sorry to say that they won’t take your word that you were born in 1910; you’ll need to present some valid ID on check-in.

The promotion is good on select US and Canadian Starwood hotels, which include Sheraton, Four Points by Sharaton, W Hotels, The Luxury Collection, Le Meridien, The Westin, and St. Regis. Guests are required to stay a minimum of two nights, and allowed a maximum of three night with this promotion. Valid on travel through December 31st, 2009.
