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.
However, there are fairly slim pickings this week…
In fact, there were only 10 hotels on Wednesday’s list:
- Asia: 2 hotels
- Europe: 2 hotels
- North America: 6 hotels
As you can see, the list doesn’t even feature any hotels in the UK this week, with only two hotels featured for the whole of Europe.
Don’t be put off SPG Hot Escapes too much by this – it’s as low a number of hotels as I’ve ever seen, and I’d expect a return to form next week.
Moving to Asia, there’s only 2 hotels: one on the island of Bali and the other in Thailand. That said, these 2 hotels could be interesting for anyone who has travel booked (or intends to travel) to these destinations during the coming 6 weeks, but has not yet booked a hotel.
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.
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.
