SPG Hot Escapes Great Picks for April 1, 2015

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.

April Fool’s Day is today! Will you fall for a joke or trick? Here are what I think are some of the best deals in the bunch of SPG’s Hot Escapes, and no foolin’!

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.

Here are all the properties on offer this week –

We saw the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva in the $280 range back in January, and prices are a little higher now but still a good deal at $329 for several Friday and Saturday nights.

Sheraton Singapore Towers has a SPG member rate of $146 for all Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights through mid-May.

The Westin Langkawi is $154 for several dates in May (down from $162 in November) and dips down to $147 for the night of May 5.

A really good deal at a really great property can be found for the St Regis Osaka. It’s just $137 for May 6 and 7th, higher than the $122 we saw in January but not by much.
