Are SPG Hot Escapes Gone for Good?

By  | 

More bad news coming on the heels Marriott buying Starwood? I popped over to the SPG Hot Escapes page this morning to see what the latest deals were and discovered this landing page.

I’m not sure if SPG Hot Escapes have just been temporarily suspended in anticipation of some Black Friday deals, but based on the language, I feel like they might be gone for good.

“Starting next Monday, lock in the year’s best rates — at more hotels than ever before. Stay from November 24, 2015, through September 6, 2016.”

In the past, as recent as last week, SPG Hot Escapes would come out every Wednesday morning at 8AM and offer discounts of 20-65%+ off participating properties for stays in the next 6 weeks.  Now it appears as though it might just be a landing page for general promotions.

I’ll be keeping watch but I’m not hopeful.

    Based on the page that comes up, it looks like they are planning a CyberMonday Sale in lieu of the Hot Escapes this week. It really doesn’t look like anything more.

    FWIW I would expect Starwood to step up it’s promotion to avoid getting hit by lower bookings due to uncertainty about the merger/the future of the loyality programs etc.

    So I’m with Aaron- I’d wait and see what happens after Cyber Monday.

    For the past few weeks, they didn’t have any good offers. So I hope this Cyber Monday is packed as I need to make few bookings 🙂
