Happy Wednesday! The SPG Hot Escapes weekly list is out and here it is, along with some of Magic of Miles’ great picks including a bunch of well-priced Le Méridien properties and some low priced mattress runs conveniently located at US airport hotels.

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 throughout the following six weeks. As an SPG member, you also save an extra 5% and earn points for the stay.

The only drawback to booking these rates is that reservations are prepaid so changes/cancellations involve a fee.

Here’s a link to this week’s Hot Escapes selections.

Magic of Miles’ great picks –

If you need an inexpensive place to stay that earns you stay credits, Element Dallas Fort Worth Airport North has a rate of $68 this week, Four Points by Sheraton at Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport is $67, Four Points by Sheraton Tucson Airport is $64, Four Points by Sheraton Edmonton South is $70 and Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel & Conference Centre is $68.

Sheraton Panama Hotel & Convention Center in Panama City has a SPG member rate of $95 for July 31, and $99 for a handful of weekends.

This week the Westin Excelsior in Rome has climbed a few dollars to $251, up from last week’s $249. In tourist season though it could be worse, and a whole week in August is at the $251 rate.

Le Méridien Etoile in Paris has lots of availability at $142, and the Sheraton Paris Airport Hotel & Conference Centre has a rate of $167 for almost every day in August and into September.

If you want to stay close to the airport in Brussels, Sheraton Brussels Airport Hotel is on offer this week at $90 though just for the night of August 28.

Le Méridien Saigon in Vietnam is hot this week with a great low rate of $128 for every weekend.

The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali was $119 back in April so the $166 on offer this week is a little more than I’d want to book at, but the Le Méridien Bali Jimbaran is well-priced at $142.

Le Méridien Shimei Bay Beach Resort & Spa in Hainan China has a low rate of $104 for every single date on the calendar.

Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre is at $88, Le Méridien Cairo Airport is at $104, and Le Méridien N’Fis in Morocco is holding again this week at a great low rate of $80.
