Starwood offers some of my favorite properties when it comes to using points. The St Regis properties in particular are amongst my favorites to burn my hard earned SPG points at. Back in 2016, Marriott and SPG completed their merger to become one company and I’ll admit I was worried. Since then there haven’t been a ton of changes but, according to Onemileatatime, this may be one of the biggest so far.
Could This Be Starwood’s Downfall?
Are Starwood Hotels making the switch from Coca-Cola to Pepsi? I hope not. Marriott tends to carry Pepsi products and SPG Coca-Cola. But, some are starting to notice a recent switch over that may make die hard soda lovers very upset!
In all seriousness, I have a big preference when it comes to Coke over Pepsi and I know that I am not alone here. When you are used to always being able to order a Coke at your favorite hotels, it will be hard to hear that you can’t have one! How do you feel about this change?
Love racking up the SPG points?
Consider these offers to earn more Starpoints, the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express. If you are short on elite status, consider the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from Amex which gives 5 elite qualifying nights, and 2 stay credits just for having the card. The Platinum Card from American Express offers complimentary annual SPG Gold status just for having the card, so that is something else to consider.
