Happy Wednesday! SPG’s Hot Escapes came out this morning and there are a couple properties prime for a mattress run. 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.
