Bad news for Starwood enthusiasts like myself. As of June 1st the St Regis monarch beach is no longer a part of SPG :(. I never got to cross this hotel off my bucket list so I'm really pissed about this.

This is unfortunate. One of our regular weekend getaway properties during the summer. I had no idea. I really enjoyed my SPG Elite treatment there.

Anyone with experience at the Westin Newport in Jersey city, regarding using a SNA and getting Plat benefits without the platinum member actually being there? 

(Obviously his name would be on the ressy, and would tell them he's coming later, but I understand some properties started giving a hard time this, specifically W Hoboken, and Sheraton Eatontown)

Has anybody tried getting 2.4% JetCash on Starwood bookings?

Would it affect elite benefits/point earning or is it a safe double dip?
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

I have the purple SPG starwood perferred guest card with 40,000 miles. I'm going to Israel with my wife in middle august. How do I get hotel stays using my points and where can I see all hotels in Israel that I can use the SPG points towards.

That's good -- looks like it can get you at least 3 free nights.

Is there anyway to have an hotel open up rewards night, or to see more availability? I have gold status if that helps.

Sorry, I made a mistake. There is only one room available for money. No point option.
