Starwood is offering upto $50 credit for booking a stay in the Indian properties, along with the Maldives and Bangladesh ones. You need to reserve using the code CREBAR to be able to enjoy the promotion. Reservations using this booking code can be made till August 10, 2014 while the stays have to be completed by December 31, 2014. The room credit will be not applicable for adjusting against the room rate, but against services at the hotel, such as dining and spa.
I checked up the rates, and the promotion is valid on flexible rates. For instance, the ITC Rajputana is offering rates of INR 8500 per night, and offering USD 25 credit, which could be good for a service or meal at the hotel. I’d recommend you make reservations in case you have plans at a later date to travel around India. Since you are not blocking funds and these are cancellable rates you can always take that call later if required.
Also, under a separate offer, Starwood is offering double points for all stays in select properties in India, Middle East and some parts of Europe in August 2014. Double Starpoints are available on one of the following packages only: Suite Package, Family Package, Breakfast & HSIA Package and Best Available Rates.
