SPG Hot Escapes Good Picks for October 1, 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 weekly list of Hot Escapes is out, and there are some good picks in the bunch.

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.

Now that the school year has started, some folks have to stay closer to home. San Francisco is generally an expensive town when it comes to hotels, and The Palace Hotel in San Francisco usually goes for around $400 a night. $186 is a great rate, especially because the date it is available is a Saturday night (November 1, 2014).

The Westin Diplomat is on sale again this week for $163, so anyone wanting a last stay at the property before it leaves SPG could do so at a reasonable rate.
