The JW Marriott

Marriott FlashPerks – Two Great Hotels at 50% Off Award Rates

Le Meridien San Francisco Review – Lot’s of Suites

I had to work in downtown San Francisco a while back for about 6 weeks. My hotel accommodations were fully reimbursed and the cost of each hotel was roughly the same on special negotiated rates, so I took the opportunity to sample the many SPG properties that are in the area. I plan to review […]
