Starwood is running a special through August 3rd with rates at properties throughout Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam pricing at almost 50% off the standard rates. I was able to find rates at the Le Meridien Bangkok (previously reviewed here) for under $90 USD per night in July and August and under $80 USD per night at the Le Meridien Angkor in Cambodia during the same time frame. The Le Meridien Angkor routinely has pre-paid rates priced around the $95-$100 mark, meaning the 50% really applies to the standard rate and not the best available rate. The Le Meridien Bangkok is a little bit of a better deal as their rates can reach into the $150 – $250 range depending on the season. However, remember that both of these hotels offer fantastic SPG Cash & Points options – 1600 points and $30 for the Le Meridien Angkor & 2800 points and $45 for the Le Meridien Bangkok. This sale makes it a toss up (depending on the rate for your selected days) between using Cash & Points and taking advantage of the sale. Valuing SPG points at 2.5 cents totals the Cash & Points option to about $70 at the Le Meridien Angkor and $115 for the Le Meridien Bangkok. Either way I’m a fan of both of these properties and you should be able to score a room for a reasonable price. The sale is also valid at the W Retreat Koh Samui (reviewed here), though 50% off the standard rates there still make for an expensive stay, the cheapest rate I found over the next three months was $399 a night using the sale code.
