Starwood has introduced weekly flash sales with the new SPG Hot Escapes. Members can book SPG Hot Escapes hotel rooms at a 20 percent or more discount and SPG members will receive an additional five percent off. A new list will be available each week on Wednesday at http://www.spghotescapes.com/all and the sale will continue until Saturday. While the booking window is limited to Wednesday through Sunday, you can book the prepaid rates for the following six weeks. Once made, however, reservations cannot be changed or refunded. SPG Hot Escapes replaces Starpicks and Beat the Timer, where discounted hotels were available for three months. SPG members will earn points and status credits for SPG Hot Escapes stays.
