Marriott SpringHill Suites 3rd night Free

Stay at SpringHill Suites for two consecutive paid nights Wednesday through Sunday and receive a 3rd night free. Book your stay by November 22 for stays through December 13.

A free Thymes Bath Set gift is also thrown in the bargain.

The way the terms are set requires at least a paid Friday or Saturday night, or both, for this free night special rate to work.

There are three combinations of nights you can book:

Wednesday-Thursday-Friday or

Thursday-Friday-Saturday or

Saturday-Sunday-Monday.

 

One of the best features of this offer is the ability to cancel up to the day of arrival for hotels I checked using the free night offer. Many, if not most, free night offers from hotel chains require full payment in advance with no refund option.
