Starwood hotels – good value stays get even better in Europe

We have for some time talked about the great value redemption nights you can book at Starwood Category 1 and 2 hotels. With award nights available from just 2,000 Starpoints, it can be an incredibly good value way to use your SPG Starpoints.

Starwood have recently revised the categorisation of a large number of its hotels. The full list of recategorisations is here, with a number of hotels being upgraded, and so costing more points (the bad news). The good news, however, is in Europe a number of hotels have been reclassified, but all of these reclassifications have lowered the category of hotel – meaning substantially less points are required to book a reward night.

The practical effect of this is as follows:
