Starwood Preferred Guest Hotel Rewards Program review
1/3/2017
I don't purchase too many frivolous things on my AMEX, but all business expenses and other expenses go on it and I am very happy with Starwood and the points that I redeem. I have stayed at several good hotels and a few great ones as well including the W hotel in NYC downtown. Those took a lot of points but might as well use them.
