SPG Hot Escapes offers Category 7 hotel for $310 per night or pay 35,000 points

This is admittedly a click-bait title for a real deal at a SPG category 7 hotel on this week’s SPG Hot Escapes list. The $310 per night rate is available in March when this hotel is in peak season and costs 35,000 points per reward night.

SPG Cash & Points is 15,000 points + $275 per night or the hotel is 35,000 points for a free night.

At those reward rates, paying $310 per night looks like a bargain for a stay at Starwood’s Hotel President Wilson, Luxury Collection Geneva, Switzerland.

This week’s SPG Hot Escapes is one of the weakest selections of hotels to post in a quite some time with only 43 hotels globally. Sometimes I feel SPG has simply given up trying to offer deals to members.

I had a wonderful night in Geneva last October staying at the InterContinental Geneva for 35,000 IHG Rewards Club points.
