Happy holidays everyone! I am away on vacation this week so posts will be sporadic. For those bored at work and still want something to read, I’ll pull up old posts that are still relevant today.

For those interested in Starwood hotels, here is everything you need to know. These individual posts make up an entire series on the Starwood Preferred Guest program.

Overall, Starwood is one of my favorite programs. I find their top tier hotels to be absolutely amazing and love their cash & points award redemption opportunities. Starwood also has one of the most flexible programs where you can either use your points at a SPG hotel or transfer to a participating airline at a 1:1 ratio which is rare for any hotel program (you also get a 25% bonus when transferring 20,000 points!). 

Let me know if you have any additional questions not answered in one of the 9 posts above. Happy ready!

  1. SPG gold seems to have been devalued with the intorduction of free internet for all SPG members. Do you SPG will sweeten the Gold offer any further?

    • @travel guy – unfortunately I do not think SPG is going to give gold members an added benefit for making wifi available for all members. I wish though!
