Your last SPG stay

Unless I missed it, I canít seem to find a thread where we can reminisce about our last spg stay.

Iíll be staying at the Liberty in Boston, one of my favorite SPG hotels in the world. Have always gotten great upgrades, the sparkling wine welcome is great, and if youíre into it the bars are pretty awesome. Itís been a great ride SPG, but as a lifetime Marriott PP Iím hoping things are just as good as heh have been.

Whats the last property youíre at before the 18th?

Riding SPG into the sunset at the Westin Miyako Kyoto, checking out tomorrow as the program switches over. No finer ending to a wonderful program than being in my dream destination, being upgraded to a Japanese-style room in the Kasui-en annex and just having a grand time in general.

Thank you for everything, SPG.

Well, itís the Four Points Knoxville, TN- most probably the best 4P in the chain.

Just few days ago...one of the three "Presidential suites" of the Sheraton Libertador Buenos Aires. Staffs took great care of us...after a way less than average stay in July. Old property, but realizing just now, that would be our last SPG encounter...at least our last stay was a truly enjoyable one!

Have also done lately the experience of ignoring my Ambassador....good...he doesn't seem to care either! I may be far away of the 20k this year....but they for sure make sure I'm not telling any of my friends to push for it!

Looks like mine will go down as the Westin Costa Navarino in Greece. The hotel that got me started was the Sheraton Anaheim, which left SPG a couple of years ago and is now the questionably named Majestic Garden Inn.

Planned a year ago - way before we knew the significance of August 18.

Our 8/17 stay will be at The Sheraton Anchorage en route to Denali.

Have loved all of our Starwood years-

I will be at the Westin Leipzig, Germany, during the transition on 18th. Feeling indeed somewhat melancholic...
Wonder how/if they will rename the afternoon "SPG Snack" for platinums.

It's been great with Starwood all those years ! ! !

I decided SPG was too expensive in London tonight, so Iím in a 5* hotel for about half the cost of the 4* SPG options. That makes my final SPG stay the glamorous Sheraton Schiphol Airport.

Well. I was doing a lame one. Last weekend, I stayed at the Sheraton Wall Center Vancouver (my hometown) for the Celebration of Lights fireworks featuring South Korea followed the next day by Vancouver's Gay Pride Parade led by our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Management wrote a hand written letter in an envelope to welcome my return (very warm). In the envelope was two breakfast vouchers to try out their lobby restaurant for breakfast buffet instead of the usual lounge (first time ever!). I was placed in a corner suite among the top floors on a sold-out hotel overlooking Vancouver's English Bay - on cash & points. It wasn't the biggest room I ever got at this particular hotel among all decade of stays here, but it was one of the best view suites. I got the view from sea to sky and the sunset was beautiful.

I hope this merger will not change how the our favorite hotels treat us and our membership with this new program will continue to bring us these wonderful memories for years and years to come!

SGS. Upgraded to theme suite. A lovely stay.

And I'll be back in two weeks. I don't really expect any changes (except I'll earn more points).

Looks like mine will ring in as the W in Washington DC last month -- a short stay while moving between residences, cheapo $175 rate upgraded with SNAs to a lovely Marvelous Suite with a view of the monument, full breakfast for 2 each morning. Not a bad way to go!

Westin Cape Town, South Africa @ an executive suite. With a bottle of wine and chocolates from the GM.

Drinking some good ol South African wine at On19 (their club lounge) watching the sun set over cape town waterfront and reminiscing how great SPG was. Was a good show until the end
