Thank you Aaron. I thought the first option could be the Sheraton too, but I wanted to double check.

Considering overall Boston's prices, I believe it's a very good deal.

I recently subscribed to the SPG program of Starwood Hotels, though I never had the chance to use it. In case I'll proceed with either Hotwire or Priceline Express, do you think I could "submit" my reservation to the SPG's account, once I receive confirmation that is actually the Sheraton?

I know I'm just nitpicking but, for instance, since apparently the Sheraton doesn't have in-room free WiFi which SPG basic memberships allows, it's a little amenity I'll love to enjoy, if I can.

The Sheraton Boston is selling for $318/nite for your dates, the PRICELINE EXPRESS offer above (guessed to be the Sheraton) is $108/nite... so does it really matter if you can get free wifi or not? (even if you added an extra $20 to your budget to account for buying wifi each day, you're still well under 50% of what you would be paying thru a direct booking)

 

Given the savings highlighted above, i think the answer is irrelevant in this situation, but to direct answer your question... technically any 3rd party booking is not eligible for points/benefits, although some properties will offer benefits as a courtesy to their members.

 

Are your plans firm and are you ready to commit to a purchase at this point in time?  Are you comfortable with an 'opaque' purchase?

Thank you for your reply, thereuare.

Don't get me wrong, I am well aware that it's a very good deal, I acknowledged it myself. I was just curious to know whether I could still be eligible for SPG  benefits, but of course the answer won't affect my final decision.

To answer your question yes, my plans are firm, I already have flight tickets. I started looking for hotels and found this deal by chance and I think I'll go thorough.

I will update this thread as soon as I proceed with either Priceline or Hotwire.

Discount reservations are not eligible for rewards benefits. That said, there are still times when people get these benefits when asking. It doesn't hurt to ask and the worst they can say is no.

Please continue this thread and conclude it with whatever you end up doing for this trip (even if not PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, you book a regular rate hotel, cancel the trip, etc)
