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.
Compared to the offerings of previous weeks, there’s a big decrease in the number of hotels in the latest round.
In fact, there were only 30 hotels on Wednesday’s list:
- Asia: 17 hotels
- Caribbean & Central America: 3 hotels
- Europe: 4 hotels
- Middle East: 1 hotel
- North America: 5 hotels
Like last week, there are no so called “featured deals” available for the UK this week. There are a couple of featured deals for Europe, but these are in Belgium and the Netherlands. SPG is still experiencing an issue on their site that causes prices to only be shown in USD.
Note that you will earn Starpoints when booking one of the SPG Hot Escapes deals – like you would with an ordinary 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.
