What we received for being a Platinum Member
This year Starwood Preferred Guest Platinum members received a free night as a bonus to the standard benefits awarded.
Starwood Point Value at the Grand Mauritian
Along with the Free Platinum award night we used a 3 night award for total of 36,000 points. Since the rooms were going for around $430 we achieved a point value of $.035. Decent value as most value a SPG point at around $.025.
It pays to carefully select a hotel reward program and then stay loyal enough to earn status and rewards.
