SPG Hot Escapes Great Picks for April 23, 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.

SPG’s Hot Escapes came out yesterday, and here are some great picks in 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.

Here are all the properties on offer this week –

Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port Hotel has a member rate of $98 for five days in May.

Westin Excelsior in Rome is just $225, though only on the 26th of April.

The St Regis Rome is offered at one of the lowest prices we’ve seen since early 2014. The member rate is $249 on April 26 and 28th. I’ve stayed at the St Regis Rome and especially enjoyed the breakfast. You can find my review here.

The Sheraton Frankfurt Airport Hotel and Conference Center is a convenient place to stay if you have a layover between flights. It is well-priced at $126 for a handful of dates in April and May.

If you’re thinking of taking a trip to Thailand there are 5 properties on offer, all of which offer savings of 26% or greater. The Naka Island property villas all come with pools too!
