PAYAGE is one of my favorite discount room rate codes from Starwood Hotels. Payage is not French. This is the special code for the Birth Year rate discount. It is actually Pay Age.
Starwood ‘Pay Your Birth Year’ discount rates have been extended for all of 2013. It is only available for select hotels in USA, Canada, Caribbean and French Polynesia. Most hotels have day of week restrictions and some hotels have seasonal black out dates.
The Birth Year rate is a set rate for the first night (usually higher than BAR) and then the second night rate is “Pay Your Birth Year”. For example, my birthdate is 1960 so I can book the rate and pay $60 per night for my second and third nights. Most hotels limit the rate to two nights and weekends, but there are hotels allowing three night stays using this rate.
Select hotels that charge $100 + your birth year for your second and third night include:
- Hotel Ivy, Minneapolis
- Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel
- The Westin New York Grand Central
- The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa, Vermont,
- The Liberty Hotel, Boston
- The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa, Hollywood, Florida
- The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa
- The Westin Resort & Spa, Tremblant
- W Atlanta – Midtown
- W Atlanta – Buckhead
- W Chicago – Lakeshore
- W Dallas – Victory
- W Fort Lauderdale
- W Retreat & Spa – Vieques Island
Must be age 18 for the rate, so no using your two year old to book the Starwood Hotel.
Sheraton Steamboat Resort, Colorado
Save 50% with a Starwood hotel rate discount for a ski trip:
Most participating hotels limit Birth Rate to weekend stays. Sheraton Steamboat is more popular on weekends so the discount is available on weekdays.
$349 is the base PAYAGE rate. I can book a three night stay from February 17-20, Presidents Holiday Week using the PAYAGE birth year rate discount.
- Night 1 = $349
- Night 2 = $60 (my 1960 birth year rate)
- Night 3 = $60
- Total rate = $479
The lowest published rate for this stay is $309 per night (AAA).
- 3 nights = $927 (AAA) rate Feb 17-20.
Another feature of Birth Year rates is the potential to get some upgraded rooms using this rate. The base rate is higher, yet the Birth Year rate remains the same for second and third nights.
Birth Year rate sometimes includes higher category rooms.
