This week the Fabulous Fridays visits the Platinum welcome amenity that SPG PLT members are eligible at Starwood hotels.
I always choose the points instead of the F&B amenity, but some hotels especially outside of North America will nevertheless put up sometimes rather nice amenity. The one that I received at the Westin Cape Town Friday last week was one of the better ones.
You can access Westin Cape Town’s website here.
The hotel had wine bottle, jerky and very good selection of nuts combined with a local gin, lemon and filled ice bucket waiting inside the executive suite when I arrived early afternoon. Yes. There were some fruits too.
Some chocolates and Amarula in a small tube brought during the turndown service.
Didn’t drink the wine but had the gin and tonic plus the snacks and some of the fruits. Hotel that puts up something like this is always well run. I have spent more than 600+ nights with Starwood and this was one of the more memorable amenities that I have received.
