SPG Hot Escapes Great Picks for June 17, 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! The SPG Hot Escapes weekly list came out this morning. Here’s the full list of properties, along with some of Magic of Miles’ 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.

This is the full list of properties on offer this week –

The Four Points by Sheraton Oklahoma City Airport has a low rate of $65 with lots of availability which is great if you’re just looking for a mattress run to retain SPG status. Three more properties in the <$70 a night range are the Aloft Tulsa Downtown and the Sheraton Crescent Hotel, both at $68 and the Four Points by Sheraton Tucson airport at $60.

The Westin St John Villas were offered at $247 back on June 3rd’s list. This week they have gone up a little to $274 on June 29 and $277 on July 25, which is still a decent rate.

The last time the W San Diego was on the SPG Hot Escapes list was last December, and this week there is a good rate of $151 for a handful of dates in June.

If you need a last minute hotel stay, the W Fort Lauderdale is at $128 for tonight, June 17 only.

W Retreat & Spa Vieques Island in Puerto Rico pricing has gone up a little from the end of May, $228 vs this week’s $253.

In Germany the Le Méridien Hamburg is $126.

Vana Belle in Koh Samui has about a dozen dates at $294 which is lower than we’ve seen in almost a year.

Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit in Bangkok is at $140 with plenty of weekend availability.

Don’t be fooled by the “21% savings” next to the St Regis Osaka property in Japan. It’s a fantastic hotel, but $279 is high to be considered a great rate. You can usually find it for under $200, and when pricing gets super low it drops to $122.

The Laguna in Nusa Dua, Bali is $129 for the 28th of June.

The Le Méridien N’Fis in Morocco has a great SPG member rate of $81 with wide open availability which is the lowest we’ve seen it all year.
