    We are excited to unveil SPG Hot Escapes. This program replaces Starpicks and Beat the Timer and features exclusive, limited time offers on future travel with a minimum of 20 percent savings on stays booked through the website, and SPG members will receive an additional five percent on top of these savings.

    A few important things to know about SPG Hot Escapes:
    • Savings start at 20% off
    • SPG Members save even more (5% off the hot escapes rate)
    • SPG Hot Escapes will run weekly from Wednesday to Saturday
    • SPG Hot Escapes includes both hotels & resorts to be booked for up to 6 weeks out
    • The site is available in 9 languages
    • Rates are fully pre-paid, non-refundable and non-changeable.
    • Discounted rates will be available on brand websites and SPG.com will have the additional SPG member discount

    We had hoped that the booking availability would be at least 3 month / 90 days out instead of 6 weeks.

    I have used "beat the timer" rates (in Europe, ME and Northern Africa) often. They offered significant rates/deals. Nothing like that in the last 2 weeks with the "Hot escapes". I have not seen any real deals and less flexibility. I feel clearly a step backwards.

    That's my thought too, a step backward from Starwood towards their guests. Well said.

    This weeks SPG Hot Escapes are better especially some properties in Europe have good rates. Check it out, there are a total of 81 "deals".
