Starwood Preferred Guest is generally a great program in terms of award availability. I’ve really never had trouble finding award space at a SPG hotel as long as I book well in advance. Except for that one time I stalked the Pitrizza Luxury Collection hotel on Sardinia hotel 10 months out until availability opened up.

But just in case you can’t find availability, I’ll show a little trick I’ve used from time to time to find out what dates are available for awards at SPG hotels.

Step 3: View award availability

Award availability doesn’t appear to be available during my desired dates. Instead of giving up on the trip, I simply look at the calendar to see if there is availability +/- 1 day from my dates.

Step 4: Select the “Browse Dates / Rates” and “SPG Free Nights” search option

Sure enough, after clicking two buttons, I’m able to find availability only a day off my original dates.

By taking these simple steps, you can find out what availability exists around your desired dates.

Bottom Line

SPG is a great program to earn points with because the availability is generally great. Earning SPG points for hotel night awards is just one reason I keep the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express in my wallet.

For those times when you can’t find the SPG award availability for your entire trip, try a search using the steps above to find out exactly what dates are available.
