    The Four Points by Sheraton Phoenix North (aka Metrocenter) left Starwood August 15, 2011. The property was bought a few months ago by Prime Hotels and Resorts. Once that happened things went downhill rapidly. It is now re-flagged as the InnPlace Phoenix. Their summer rates were among the least expensive Starwood property in the world. It was great for mattress runs but I pity people who actually stayed there.

    Oh, deer. I hope that they are not meaning to abandon the integrated and dynamic maps from bing.com. It's been a while since I've seen a map page with only a static local map on spg.com.

    This is a long-planned conversion of the former Capri Centre hotel and convention centre. From 2008 news that I cited long ago:

    Awesome! I'm VERY excited about this! I was SO disappointed when the plans originally fell through for the Westin Snowmass. I'm not clear about this "independent" hotel; will it join SPG, I hope?

    Could the independent property be a condo-type vacation village? IIRC there's a residences at the Phoenician (AZ) that sounds like a very upscale version of this. The designation could also mean that it's a hotel like the older one in Boston that just uses Starwood as a reservation service but doesn't participate in SPG for earning or redeeming points.

    Both are logical theories, but the first is not the case for this property. It's actually a lesser property. $99 just before Christmas. $199 during Christmas/NY week. $179 at the end of Feb. Someone else may know if a renovation could make a difference.

    It is a good idea, and the transportation company is the same for a few of the hotels, I know the W, St Regis and Laguna share drivers. The problem is the traffic, going from the W to St Regis can take well over an hour at certain times.

    The Sheraton Kuta looks pretty good, the ads at the site showcase some of the eco-friendly features of the upcoming hotel.
