Starwood Preferred Guest released the names of properties that made their “2015 Member Favorites Hotels & Resorts List”. Based on hotel survey feedback and reviews, it gives SPG an overview of which hotels are popular with members when it comes to purchase as well as redemption, and gives members an interesting look at what hotels other members classify their favorites. I also suspect it helps them determine which properties should be shifted up or down a category depending on member interest.
Perusing the winner list, I saw several properties that I’ve stayed at and reviewed.
One of the member favorites is the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort in Florida, which quickly became my new favorite property in Florida after the Westin Diplomat turned into a Hilton.
The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is on my list of places that I’d like to stay at and here’s a pic from their website –
