Hilton is pushing forward as the best hotel point wise in 1Q 2012, especially for weekend stays. Their first promotion is:
Make every night you stay count for more. With the More Points promotion from Hilton HHonors™, you can earn 1,000 Bonus Points per night plus an additional 5,000 Bonus Points for every weekend* stay of two nights or more at participating hotels and resorts through March 31, 2012. Now, you can earn more points while having an experience worth sharing.

5,000 bonus points for a weekend stay is pretty awesome and will beat out the double and triple points that others chains are making for most people.
The other offer they have is 2500 bonus points for booking a weekend stay if you book it on January 17. So if you have weekend travel planned, it would be worth your while to wait until the 17th to book it. As far as I can tell these two promotions should stack giving you 2,500+5,000+1,000+1000=9500 bonus miles on top of the normal miles you will earn. Not too shabby!
Here is the link for the RSVP on facebook which it is looking like you have to use to get the 2500 bonus points.
Well, I guess it is that time of the year, because Club Carlson / Radisson has announced a triple points promotion for bookings from January 10 to March 16. Take a minute, click on the register link and sign up! I typically just sign up for them all, then compare the offers when I need to actually make a booking to see which one is the most valuable. I am paying more attention to this hotel chain now because I took advantage of their “Stay 1 night, get 50,000 points promo” they had around Christmas. I ended up paying $66 for a room in Nashville and was awarded 50,000 points which will get at least $300 worth of rooms on my next Eurpoe trip.
Earning triple points has never been so easy.
Simply complete the registration form and a stay between January 10 and March 16, 2012 at any of our more than 1,000 participating hotels worldwide: Radisson®, Country Inns & Suites By Carlson℠, Park Inn by Radisson or Park Plaza® hotels.
Remember, every stay at a Carlson hotel brings you one step closer to free nights faster – starting at only 9,000 points with no blackout dates on standard rooms. You’ll even earn triple points on food and beverages charged to your room between January 10 and March 16, 2012.

Starwood Preferred Guest has announced their latest promotion and while it isn’t anything as good as they have had in the past, it is free points compared to what you would normally get so it is welcome in my book. From the email I got:
