Earn 2,000 bonus Starpoints for Starwood Tribute Portfolio stay, new 10th brand

Starwood Hotels has a new 10th hotel brand named Tribute Portfolio. Think Luxury Collection without the historical building setting. The idea is to have a Starwood brand for newer independent hotels to match Marriott Autograph Collection and Hilton Curio Collection. Luxury Collection hotels as a brand tend to be older restored buildings. We won’t know the scope of Tribute Portfolio until there are more properties to compare.

Tribute Portfolio launched with one hotel, Royal Palm South Beach Miami.

Earn 2,000 bonus Starpoints per stay at a Tribute Portfolio hotel, up to 10,000 bonus points through July 15, 2015.

Tribute Portfolio Perfect 10 Promotion registration required.
