SPG Hot Escapes Great Picks for June 3, 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.

Happy Wednesday! SPG’s Hot Escapes came out this morning. Here’s the entire list of properties with rates good for the next six weeks, and down below I’ve included what I think are some of the best picks.

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.

The Westin St John Resort is also on the list this week, at $247 though just for the night of June 28, 2015.

Availability at the Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas is wide open at $169, which is about $25 higher per night than we’ve seen in the last six months but still a decent deal.
