Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Design Hotels Starpoints Awards Now Available

Select Design Hotels became Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) participating late last year (read more here) and more hotels are joining the program. Design Hotels is a separate company (majority owned by Starwood) and selection of design rich hotels.

SPG Design Hotels Awards

Starwood made a promise that redeeming Starpoints for awards at these hotels would become available soon and seems that they decided to load the rates same time with the March 1 devaluation.

You can access Starwood’s web page for Design Hotels here.

Conclusion

Good that redeeming Starpoints for these participating Design Hotels is now made available, although many look very rich in number of points required.

I have yet to stay at SPG participating Design Hotels (was eyeing the property in Johannesburg when I was in the city past January), but will sometime later this year when more are available on this platform.
