Bottom Line

It seems that Starwood felt left out, after Hyatt joined forces with MLife this summer, so they went out looking for a partner. Caesars does seem like a good choice for Starwood, and SPG members have many ways to benefit.

I want to point out though that when it come to earning SPG elite night credit at Caesars properties, it’s only good for up to 10 nights per year and these will not count toward lifetime Platinum, so if you were thinking of being able to mattress run in Vegas at some of the cheaper properties, you will be limited to 10 nights and they would only count toward the 50 night requirement, since you do not earn any stay credits.

Overall, it’s a welcome addition since Starwood was lacking when it came to hotels in Vegas.

  1. What does it that it does not count towards lifetime platinum? So say Jan 1, 2014, I start with 4 stays from my spg Amex and go to Vegas for six weekends straight (6 stays) that does nt bring me to 10 stays and gold status?
