Right now, you can score two years of instant Gold status and 4,000 bonus points with the Ascott Star Rewards hotel loyalty program – simply by signing up via this link. And while Gold membership benefits won’t set the world on fire, there are still some handy perks on offer. Simply put, if you’re planning a hotel stay globally in the next few years, it’s probably worth signing up for free.
Plus, this could be an excellent opportunity to acquire elite status with a view to ‘matching’ it by taking advantage of a status match or challenge with a competing loyalty program.
What is Ascott Star Rewards?
Ascott Star Rewards isn’t a program that many Australian travellers are likely to be familiar with, however, you may know some of their brands, including Citadines and Somerset. Ascott’s portfolio is made up of over 700 serviced residences across over 30 countries.
While the highest concentration of properties can be found in the Middle East and Asia, Ascott operates a small number of properties in Australia. So, gold status could come in handy if you’re planning a trip interstate.
The Australian properties are: Somerset on the Pier (Hobart), Citadines on Bourke (Melbourne), Somerset on Elizabeth (Melbourne), Citadines St Georges Terrace (Perth) and Citadines Connect Sydney Airport.
Ascott Star Rewards Gold benefits
Ascott Star Rewards Gold usually requires a threshold spend of over $3,000 AUD in any given membership year to reach.
Sadly, gold status doesn’t offer lucrative perks like breakfast, however, there are still some handy benefits available – namely priority early check-in and late checkout, along with complimentary room upgrades (subject to availability) in Europe.
