There are many things I like about redeeming Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) points for hotel reservations. Not only do award redemptions give the chance to experience some of the greatest hotels, the opportunity to use suite upgrade certificates (if you are a Platinum with over 50 nights), but you also get to experience hotels for zero out of pocket cost.
My recent reservation came with no mention of a resort fee, a great value from my SPG point redemption, and my favorite award redemption benefit of all.
Any guesses where I redeemed 120,000 Starpoints?
The best part of the SPG award redemption is the ability to earn night and stay credit toward elite qualification for next year.
What is your favorite and least favorite part of a SPG award redemption?
