My SLS Beverly Hills Experience
« Reply #165 on: November 12, 2013, 05:12:19 PM »
Arrived at SLS on wed night after flight from JFK->LAX. Booked the SLS using 1,000 starpoints and reduced room rate of $299 for biz travel. They gave away my room because a group of people (read "celebrities and entourage") unexpectedly stayed an additional evening. Although they offered to put me up at their sister property, the Redbury in Hollywood, I was visibly upset. They offered me BMW service to and back from Redbury, comped the room at the Rebury (which was upgraded to a 1,200 sq ft suite) AND gave me 20,000 starpoints. Not bad for a mild inconvenience. Classy work by the SLS

yes, the Beverly Hills SLS is all class...

A Free 1200 sq. ft suite is awesome!

You'll have to go back to the SLS at some point - very classy.
however, they'll be increasing their rate to 20,000 per night.

If you are SPG gold, then you can get an upgraded 700 sq.Signature Suite (usually $739)
for Cash & Points for 10,000 pts. + $180:

Was not impressed with the SLS. Bathrooms have little privacy and roof-top pool plays deafening music on weekends.

Bathroom doors close all the way (sliding doors?) - How much privacy do you want?
Oh -- referring to the glass walls of the showers?

Weekends as in Friday nights?
Never there on Shabbos -- but was there Thanksgiving -- peaceful and quiet on the roof!
The restaurant had a famous chef and menu -- just stayed on roof with a drink and the sunset...
Great LA views up there.

If I was booked under someone else's SPG platinum account for a Free Night, would I be able to get credited back points to my spg account for a complaint that I had?

SR = St. Regis?
BH = Bev Hills?
