SPG Elite Benefits at a new Hotel Brand

Hotels in Holland are improving. Several new hotels belonging to major Chains have been introduced, like the new W Hotel in Amsterdam. Now there is a new SPG hotel.

I can’t wait to visit the Kruisheren Hotel in Maastricht. It is a good location for when I drive to many other European Cities. Starwood Preferred Guest members can earn Starpoints and get free internet at this new Brand.


The new W in Amsterdam also has a Roof top bar & pool with view. There are 2 SPG hotels in Amsterdam. One is my regular home away from home, The Airport Sheraton, and the other is the one we wanted to dine at, (the Pulitzer Hotel). This was not possible because it was closed for renovation. I stayed at the Pulitzer once but did not stay again because it is one of those Hotels that is Touristy and I don’t think gets much repeat business.     

Many  Select Design Hotels have already joined SPG and more will follow. Gramercy Park Hotel NYC, is another gem.

It is a nice location if you want to be out of the crowded Times Square area, but in the heart of the City. It is a grand hotel and has hosted distinguished guests since 1925.  Rooftop Terrace providing stunning views of New York.

SPG is introducing Design Hotels. Select Design Hotels have already joined SPG, and additional hotels will follow  in the future.
