    Oh man would I love to win in any of the categories... But I've found this particular category of the give away to not only be mouthwatering, but also informative. I've been aware of most of the properties up for grabs so far, as well as several of the Small Wonders, but I've actually never heard of most of them. I will certainly be checking them out online and maybe adding them to my "destination wish-list!"

    I wish the pages showing the properties in each category with pictures for voting could be found and retrieved later on spg.com. They're such great suggestions for spectacular resorts in various categories and the pictures make me droll.

    I agree. Also, thank you for what I presume was an unintentional vocab lesson! I assumed you meant drool, but then droll registered with me as being a word, albeit one I did not know the meaning of, so I looked it up worried that what I thought was a typo was in fact a correctly used word I was unfamiliar with. Turns out it looks like you did mean drool, but if anyone else out there, like me, doesn't know what droll means:

    –adjective
    1.
    amusing in an odd way; whimsically humorous; waggish.
    –noun
    2.
    a droll person; jester; wag.
    –verb (used without object)
    3.
    Archaic . to jest; joke.

    So I guess, if I understand how to use the word correctly, I mean this to be a droll post. (Feel free to correct my usage if I'm mistaken!)

    And thank you MSPeconomist. I have found your posts across the board to be among the most helpful and informative on MP. I hope you do not mind my joshing; it comes with gratitude for all of your valuable contributions.

    Thanks very much for those kind words in addition to the droll stuff. I did indeed mean to say drool, which has been my reaction to every set of resort pictures that SPG has presented to us during this promo. I wish I had the time and money to try them all.

    In fact, my helpful colleague just informed me that the exact search results on the Pack Your Bags site can be found on www.spg.com/resorts, our new site showcasing our resort collection. If you go to www.spg.com/memberfavorites you can link there directly.

    Reminder: This is the last day to enter. Don't wait too long as I suspect the website will be shut down at midnight in SPG's NYC area HQ.

    Yeah, it's been a lot of fun to look at the pictures and daydream, especially on a cold grey day.

    "This Starwood Preferred Guest giveaway has expired."

    I'm still waiting for them to notify me that I'm the Grand Prize winner. Any day now, I'm sure. ;)
