2014 Year in Review: Hotels

I recently posted about my 2014 year in flight.  You can also read about my 2013 hotel stays here.

In 2014, We stayed in really great hotels although didn't receive as many "upgrades" as in prior years.  I'll end the year with ended the year with 57 total nights (I was at 55 last year) across Starwood, Hyatt, Hilton, IHG, and independent brands.  Interesting to note that 5 of our stays and 13 of our nights were at independent properties where we were unable to earn/burn points.

None of the nights were business travel although 10 of the "nights" were credit from the Starwood American Express cards and two additional nights were "mistakes" credits.  So I actually stayed in hotels 45 nights during 2014.  I will be dropping from Starwood Platinum to Gold (lifetime) which I'm okay with.

We do have upcoming stays this year at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, and W Taipei so I will update this post if anything extraordinary happens at any of those properties.

Here are a few of the highlights and pictures from 2014:
  • 7 Starwood stays across 3 brands
  • 5 independent stays across 5 brands
  • 2 Hyatt stays across 2 brands
  • 4 Hilton stays across 3 brands
  • 1 IHG stay across 1 brand

Best hotel stay:

Four Seasons Bali at Sayan.  We loved this place and would return in a heartbeat.  Our American Express FHR rate got upgraded to a massive villa with our own pool, gazebo, outdoor shower, and grass backyard.
