Review: AMEX Starwood Preferred Guest Luxury Card

My gosh, I really don’t want 2019 to come at all… it will mean the end of Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG), the best hotel chain in the world. SPG has always had a special place in my heart due to their uniqueness, luxury, incredible redemption opportunities, and elite benefits. Ever since Marriott acquired SPG, it hasn’t been the same, sadly. I’ve stayed at a number… Read More

Will Marriott Remove SPG Airline Transfers?

Hotels in London: Always a Struggle

Ever since the massive Club Carlson devaluation, I’ve been struggling with booking hotels in London.
