SPG Hot Escapes Good Picks for December 11, 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 came out yesterday and here are some good picks from the bunch. 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 –
