Starwood Hotels Birth Year rate can be a great savings at some hotels. Pay a set rate for the first night of your hotel stay and get the second and for select hotels third night at the nightly rate of your birth year. For example, born in 1975, then the room rate is $75. At some hotels this will be the lowest rate possible and can save a $100 to $300 on a hotel stay.

  1. Great summary. FWIW, You misssed a couple of Hilton Worldwide brands: Embassy Suites, Hilton Grand Vacations, and the newest brand, Curio.

  2. @SW – Thanks for pointing out the missing Hilton hotel brands. Embassy Suites was definitely an oversight.

    I went ahead and added Moxy to Marriott brands too.
