Using points for free hotel nights always the best way to go!

Starwood Hotels- Want To Stay For Free?

Dan and I are Starwood Preferred Guests and when we travel, we often choose one of Starwood’s wonderful properties.

We were thrilled that IFBC 2013, was being held at W Hotel, Seattle.

Not only did the hotel give attendees amazingly affordable room rates, but the W Seattle, opened their premises to three days of fun, food, and fabulous hospitality.

Plus, we accrued some more SPG points that I would be dedicating for use on our Asia adventure.

Starwood American Express Card

As loyal American Express/Starwood cardholders, we’ve accumulated a fair mouth of SPG points over the past year. They can be accrued by just using the card, and when you stay at a Starwood hotel, you collect more points. The best part, is that when you first open the card, you receive a bonus of  25,000 points. We earned points during our two trips to the Sheraton Austin this year, so with all those points racked up, we are planning to make the most of them.

Starwood Hotels In Asia

Since southeast Asia is so inexpensive, our points will go a log way towards an  amazing vacation, and I’ve put together a really inexpensive itinerary for us.

We’ll be staying free for two night at Le Meridien Bangkok.

We’ll also be using both points and cash, for our stay at Westin Bund Hotel – Shanghai.

Another two nights will be spent at Sheraton Royal Orchid in Bangkok, which we hear is amazing!

With only a few days left to plan, we’re still mulling over, where to stay in Koh Samui.

Le Meridien Koh Samui is in the running, if we have enough points left!

Sheraton Royal Orchid, Starwood Hotels, SPG PointsStay tuned to see how it all worked out!
