There is no more information than I saw on the first screen.

Clicking on the W Paris Opera to explore this sale reveals what looks like the normal SPG Hot Escapes six weeks booking window ending January 3, 2016.

There are some low rates for the Starwood Hotels listed, but something is wrong here. The calendar does not go beyond January 3 for any hotels I checked.

  1. Noticed the same thing…the extended booking period and the available dates ending January 3rd, but that is 6 weeks from today, not the end of the booking period of December 6th. I suspect this change was made to accommodate holiday season travel and in a week or two it will return to the normal 3-day booking period from which the 6 weeks will be based. I could never get into the “new” scheme Starwood was saying we’d get last Monday after they cancelled last week’s Escapes. I suppose this is that version?

  2. I noticed the same and messaged them, SPG’s DM response: Thank you for letting us know. We are now working on getting this issue resolved. In the meantime we’d suggest you try book your stay through this link instead http://spg.to/1SkdsIx
