The Starwood 100

Starwood Hotels, IMO, is the best hotel loyalty program out there. It’s my chain of choice whenever I travel. I’m sure there are quite a few people who won’t find this interesting, but I set a goal to stay at 100 Starwood properties worldwide. This would, by no means, be a record, based on some of the other travelers I know. But, here’s what I think is my complete list of 58 properties. Still a good ways to go, but there’s some really great properties mixed in with some dogs.
