Update: Visa Signature Luxury Hotel has discontinued the promotion with 2nd night free, but the $75 gift card promotion is still valid.
Wow, this is an absolutely amazing deal. Visa Signature Luxury Hotel Collection is offering a free night, $75 Visa gift card, and $25 hotel credit with 2+ night stays in selected Conrad, Waldorf Astoria, and Curio properties around the world.
What this boils down to is a 2nd night free (on 2-night stays) + $75 Visa Gift Card + $25 F&B Credit. We usually see great deals with 3rd or 4th night free, so this is quite fantastic. Along with this promotion, you will also get the following benefits when booking with Visa Signature Luxury Hotel:
- Best available rate guarantee
- Automatic room upgrade upon arrival, when available
- Complimentary in-room Wi-Fi, when available
- Complimentary continental breakfast daily
- VIP Guest status
- 3PM check-out upon request, when available
There are two “catches” to this promotion. First, you must pay for your stay with a Visa Signature card. Basically, many VISA cards that have a $5,000 limit or above qualify as Visa Signature; just look under the VISA logo on your card. Additionally, not all Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, and Curio properties participate. You can see the properties that participate in this promotion at the end of the post.
Example: Conrad Bangkok for Basically $25/Night
Still, even with these restrictions, this is still an pretty awesome deal. For example, you can stay at the Conrad Bangkok from October 1 to October 3 for $75 a night after the promotion, and on top of that, get free breakfast, a $25 food & beverage credit, and a $75 Visa gift card.
If you value those extra perks at face value, that’s basically an effective room rate of $25 a night at the Conrad Bangkok. AMAZING!
When you book through the Visa Signature Luxury Hotel Collection website, you can see the promotion pop up under eligible rooms:
You will still see the full price at check-out, but according to the terms and conditions, the last night of the stay, including its associated taxes and fees, will be deducted upon check-out.
Offer must be booked at one of the 50 participating Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts™, Conrad Hotels & Resorts™, or Curio – A Collection by Hilton™ (“Participating Hotels”) by December 31, 2016, for stays through March 31, 2017 with an eligible Visa Premium card through a Visa Luxury Hotel Collection website or Visa Concierge. Minimum 2-night consecutive stay required. Free night will be the rate for the last night of the stay inclusive of associated taxes and fees and will be deducted at the hotel upon check-out. Maximum one free night per room, per stay. Back-to-back stays within 24 hours at the same hotel are considered one stay, regardless of check-out and check-in activity. Offer is subject to availability at the time of booking. Offer cannot be combined with any other offers or packages unless otherwise specified. Normal occupancy and cancelation policies apply. Hilton Worldwide and Visa reserve the right, in its sole discretion, to withdraw, cancel, modify, amend, suspend or terminate the offer, in whole or in part, in any way, at any time, for any reason, without prior notice or any liability to any person.
In order to get the gift card, you have to book your stay before November 30, and must complete your stay by February 28, 2017. Otherwise, you can book by December 31 and complete the stay by March 31, 2017, and still get on the “last night free” promo.
In my experience, Visa Signature Hotel Collection bookings are like AMEX Fine Hotel & Resorts, where the nights are elite-qualifying, and you earn points on your stay. That’s just the cherry on top.
