Time to open a Starwood AMEX and stay for free at the Le Meridan!

They have a minimum stay length.  You need to book for the minimum stay and then call SPG to lop off the days you don't want.
I remember having to do that at a few Israel SPG's a couple years ago.

They are gaming the system, and we have to put a end to their practices, both in Yam Hamelach, and in Eilat!

They are gaming the system, but we've lost 8 Israeli SPG's since 2007...don't want to lose any more!

They're crooked.
But just book this
http://www.starwoodhotels.com/preferredguest/search/results/standard.html?localeCode=en_US&iATANumber=&city=Dead+Sea&stateCode=&countryCode=IL&numberOfRooms=1&numberOfAdults=1&arrivalDate=05%2F23%2F2010&departureDate=06%2F02%2F2010
and then call SPG to take off the dates you don't want. Works like a charm.


why not call up directly, whats the point doing it online first?

by the way, I'm sure some (or all of you) got this email of spg to design your own card. So instead of putting your address, you can just add "Guaranteed Upgrade" or "Complimentary spa access".

I'm sure it will do the job some places.
