The SPG promotion is probably the best, since SPG points are the most valuable and you can earn up to 3x the usual rate during this promotion. Only weekend stays qualify for triple points, while weekdays will earn double.
The Marriott promotion is also interesting, but you need to have at least to stays to earn a bonus. You’ll earn 2,000 bonus points per stay beginning with your second stay and an additional 2,000 points for each new brand you stay with. If possible switch up your brands to earn that extra 2K per stay.
The Ritz-Carlton offer is pretty straightforward. You’ll earn double Ritz-Carlton Rewards points for every stay of two nights or longer with some exclusions.
