St. Regis Bal Harbour trip 60,000 points giveaway

At $1,099 per night, without a doubt, this St. Regis Bal Harbour hotel room is the most expensive hotel room I have ever stayed the night. And I am in the standard room. I tried using SPG suite upgrades, but apparently they are not allowed at this hotel.

I did not pay the $1,099 rate myself. The room here is a complimentary benefit of being a 2012 SPG Amex Star blogger for a free taste of Miami luxury.

You can stay here too for two free nights if you are the winner of 60,000 Starpoints from Loyalty Traveler courtesy of SPG American Express.

Although, I see next year the St. Regis Bal Harbour will have SPG peak season category 7 rates at 35,000 points per night from Dec 26, 2013 through Jan 4, 2014.

How does every room have an ocean view?

There are no rooms on the west-facing sides of the hotel.

I will describe the hotel and room in separate blog posts.

  1. Tambo del Inka in Peru (SPG Luxury Collection) is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at, period. Send me back!

  2. While most here are saying Bora Bora, I will go with a more realistic vacation for me and say the Westin on Maui

  3. Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel – My nephew is a Marine stationed on Okinawa, so I’m bringing him and his mother to a shared dream: Disney Tokyo!

  4. W Bali, while I can’t afford it outright I’d love to use these points to bring my fiancé next year to stay there!

  5. I’d love to stay at the W New York – Union Square on New Year’s Eve with my wife. At only 20,000 a night for 12/31 this year, might as well make it three nights!

    But man, your St. Regis Miami is definitely tempting!
