View Full Version : What can I expect? How does it work

Hi all,
Hoping for some advice, I have read through most of the posts here, but have gotten confused about what to do to get "the best deal".
I am an SPG Gold member, with 500 points right now (I used a bunch for airline tickets before).
My family has reservations for Swan in Dec. using the teacher's rate $129.00. When we made the reservations I gave my SPG #, and was told I'd be upgraded to a preferred room if one is available. I reserved 2 rooms, will both be upgraded? Also, if I am gold level, do we automatically get club privaleges, or do we have to trade in points? I know I have time to earn enough points for club level (I have the Starwood AMEx card and a few trips coming up). Is it worth doing this? Do I need enough points for one room (about 5000 for 8 nights) or will I need enough to upgrade 2 rooms (10 k). Also, if I have an automatic upgrade to a preferred room, and club privaleges, what would I get with another level upgrade?
Thanks for any advice you have. Linda

Can't answer your question, just wanted to welcome you! I love seeing fellow Bostonians on the board.;)

lvinay, I hate to burst your bubble but they told me that also. Someone I know told me they usually just say it, Either way if they upgrade or not you are going to have a FUNtasic time.

P.S. I ended up staying at BWI instead but that is beside the point.:)
