I signed up for an SPG account about 6 months ago but have not had any stays and i got this below in an email. I have been hilton gold for the last couple of years but the free award stay caught my eye. I have an upcoming stay in 2 weeks so i booked the sheraton marina san diego, but would like advise on what offer seems better. I live in Long Beach Ca and like to do short weeks out so the free night seems like a pretty good deal, are free night awards easy to redeem? Thanks in advance The bonus is just the beginning.
