The SPG Hot Escapes weekly list came out this yesterday and here it is, along with some of Magic of Miles’ great picks for August 20 including a few 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 –
