SPG Hot Escapes Great Picks for August 12, 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 and here it is, along with some of Magic of Miles’ great picks for August 12 including a handful of Sheraton properties and some hotels prime for mattress running.

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.

Here is the full list of Hot Escapes properties on offer this week, with Magic of Miles’ best recommendations at the bottom –

Magic of Miles’ Great Picks

One of the properties we don’t often see on the Hot Escapes list is the Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa in BC, Canada and it has a member rate this week of $104.

Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center in Durham, North Carolina is $71, Four Points by Sheraton Oklahoma City Airport is $60, Sheraton Hartford South Hotel in Connecticut is $75, Four Points by Sheraton Phoenix South Mountain in Arizona is $68, Sheraton Houston Brookhollow Hotel in Texas is $68, and The Westin Atlanta Airport in Georgia is $68. These are some great choices if you need to do a little mattress running to maintain status.

Heading to Panama? Sheraton Panama Hotel & Convention Center is the lowest we’ve seen it for a while, at $87. It’s just available at that rate on one date though, August 23.

I loved my time in Florence, which you can read about here. The St. Regis Florence is on the list this week with a great rate of $335 for a couple dates in August. It was less expensive in February ($293), but the weather definitely wasn’t as gorgeous as it is now.

The Westin Excelsior in Rome was at $251 last week but today it came back down to a great rate of $238.

Screen Shot 2015-08-12 at 10.37.48 AM

Sheraton Paris Airport Hotel & Conference Centre is back on the list this week with a member rate of $168.

Sheraton Brussels Airport Hotel is priced a bit too high this week as it can usually be found on the list in the $70 range.

The St Regis Osaka is a gorgeous hotel but I think this week’s offering at $286 is a little high since it can sometimes be found in the $120 range like it was in May and October.

Le Méridien Saigon in Vietman is on the list again this week at $127, as is Le Méridien Bali Jimbaran at $142 and the W Doha Hotel & Residences at $235.

That’s it for this week’s great selections!
