Some of the best deals I see this week in hotels are room rate discounts across Europe with Accor, Club Carlson and Hilton. Kimpton, Marriott and Starwood have sales on the USA home front.
January is a tough month for promotions with Marriott Rewards in between MegaBonus offers Jan 16-31. Club Carlson has no new offer yet.
And what about Hyatt? Hyatt Gold Passport appears to be leading the way for hotel loyalty programs weaning us off bonus points promotions with no new offer in several months.
Hotel loyalty promotions are generally weak this month. A good hotel rate discount might be your best value for travels.

IHG Rewards Club Winter Sale Europe offers discounts to members for advance purchase. Not really a special sale. More like a pitch to become an IHG Rewards Club member to get lower rates with a small discount.
The IHG promotion page for Asia Pacific is more straightforward in showing IHG Rewards Club members get an additional 5% off.
Kimpton Hotels – Special Offers for rate discounts and added amenities like breakfast for $5.

Marriott eBreaks are weekly discounts for hotels in the Americas sent each Monday to email subscribers. These are often good rates I might have not considered otherwise.
