As we have previously flagged, every Wednesday Starwood hotels’ loyalty scheme, Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG), releases the latest round of “SPG Hot Escapes” on their dedicated website.

These deals can be booked until the coming Saturday for hotel stays in the subsequent 6 weeks, with discounts that can go up to 50% depending on the destination and hotel.

If you’re not a member yet of the SPG loyalty programme, then I recommend you sign up (for free), as you will get an extra discount of 5% on all the prices featured on the SPG Hot Escapes website. You can register yourself as a new member through this link.

The SPG Hot Escapes are released every Wednesday

Unfortunately, this week’s list is substantially shorter than the previous week, with only about a third of the hotels! Looks like last week was a peak moment, so we’ll have to wait and see what the next few weeks bring…

In fact, there were 29 hotels on Wednesday’s list:

  • Asia: 9 hotels
  • Europe: 8 hotels
  • Mexico: 1 hotel
  • Middle East: 1 hotel
  • North America: 9 hotels
  • South America: 1 hotel

As you can see, this week’s list features only one hotel in the UK, but there are various options in Europe. Although 22% discounted, the rate for the St Regis hotel in Florence might just raise an eyebrow or two.spg hot escapes

TheUK option is the Sheraton hotel at Heathrow airport, which can be booked at a rate of £51 per night.

Note that you will earn Starpoints when booking one of the SPG Hot Escapes deals  – like you would with a regular booking through the SPG website. That said, dished out on a strict revenue basis, Starwood doesn’t reward you with many points for hotel stays, especially if you compare the number of points you receive with, for example, IHG.

However, the Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty programme does have an interesting conversion rate for transferring points from your SPG account to your favourite airline frequent flyer account. It’s possible to convert Starpoints at a 1:1 rate to air miles. You’ll also earn a 5,000 point bonus when you transfer 20,000 points.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to visit the InsideFlyer UK forum and ask – we’ll be glad to help you out.
