SPG Hot Escapes Good Picks For September 24, 2014

Please note that I receive compensation for many links on this blog. American Express and other banks are advertising partners of this site. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy to learn more.

SPG’s Hot Escapes list today has some very good deals, including a pool villa property.

For those who aren’t familiar, SPG combined Beat The Timer for Hot Escapes and Starpicks into something called Hot Escapes. Every Wednesday at 6am EST new properties are added and must be booked by that Saturday, for stays during the following six weeks. As an SPG member, you also save an extra 5% and earn points for the stay.

The only downside is that reservations are prepaid, and if you change or cancel a fee is involved.

Here’s a link to this week’s Hot Escapes selections.

The Westin Grand Central NYC is a reasonable $174 instead of $230, and the Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas is a steal at $148 instead of close to $500. With 2,670 square feet and a private pool, if I had some free time in the next few weeks I’d definitely book this one.
