When I'm signed in, it says "Enjoy 1 more night when you stay 3 consecutive nights or more."
I see it on my account but only on st Regis stays. Also, check the fine print - these promos are usually only valid on paid stays

Is there a general difference between Westins and Alofts?

Cool! Do you have a link?

When booking a room for a couple, can I put both our SPG #s on, to help us both with statuses?

On mobile so I can't get link. Just go into your profile or account settings. Something like that. One Spg # per reservation

Also keep in mind that alofts usually have very funky (weird) room designs and layout like a frosted wall separating the bathroom from the room, and strange things like that. In general I'm a huge westin fan, I think their hotels are from the most comfortable and inviting, out of the whole spg lineup. My 2 cents.

so do people always use the same one?
also, if only one of us has the credit card, is there any benefit to booking from that one?

I guess so. I know i do. 2 benefits off the top of my head : a) you already have stay credits from having the cc. b) you get 2/3/4 times points by booking Spg hotel with Spg cc
