SPG Hot Escapes Good Picks for November 5, 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 today. For those who aren’t familiar with Hot Escapes, 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.

This is the full list of properties on offer this week –

Oktoberfest is over, but the Le Meridien in Munich is at $146 which is pretty good considering it is often in the $300 range.

The Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas are back on the list this week, at a great rate of $145. This really is a steal, and you get your own pool villa. Note that a reader booked and stayed the last time this was a hot pick in mid-October, and found that while the website says the square footage of the villa is over 2,600 that number actually includes the pool and outside area too. Still a great deal though, since rates can be $700+.

The W New York Downtown has a good price this week of $197 for the member price. Availability is slim, with that rate only on a Monday and Tuesday though.

Hotel Des Indes in the Netherlands is a great property and the SPG member price is $113. I’d snap that one up, except the price is only shown for one date – December 14. I tried a few other dates though, and found availability. If you’re traveling solo the price drops to $94 for a night (November 25 – 26, 2014).
