Full disclosure (since we are all one big happy family now), I like SPG luxury properties more than I do Marriott's. I have never actually stayed at a SPG property before out of keeping loyalty (and points) with Marriott. I have however hung out in a bunch of St Regis, Grand Sheraton, Le Meridien and W hotels though. I fell in love with the décor, ambience, food and staff. Now I can stay there guilt free! So the question is who else secretly loved SPG properties and may primarily start staying with them?
I am going to have to wait till next year until I can start staying though. I am still short 20 days to keep Platinum. I have trips to Qatar, Thailand and Switzerland planned and I had hoped to start immediately *tears up*.
