SPG Benefits at Design Hotels

SPG Benefits at Design Hotels

  1. Anonymous

    Does anyone have experience staying at Design Hotels as an SPG Platinum? I know the benefits on paper are not as nice, but I am curious about the probably of room upgrades in practice. Thanks.

    I am aware that full SPG benefits are not available at Design Hotels, however, I’ve noticed that many Design Hotels look nicer than traditional SPG options in some cities (especially in Europe). I am curious – does any one have experience staying at Design Hotels as an SPG platinum? Are room upgrades likely?

    I am a budget conscious (i.e. cheap) traveler so turning down free breakfast and (likely) room upgrades to stay at a more unique hotel is a tough call. Thanks.
