An Extraordinary Experience + a Four Seasons Giveaway

There’s nothing like one of your favorite hotel chains contacting you, asking if you’d like to come visit…and then telling you they want you to stay with them in a country you never had any intention of visiting because it kind of scared the living daylights out of you………

A Luxurious Stay in Florence with #spglife

I had a good feeling about the experience I might have in Italy with Starwood Preferred Guest, checking out the hotels chosen to be 2014 Member Favorites properties by my fellow members because as a member myself, I’m accustomed to being well treated during my stay at Starwood properties. That being said, I didn’t know how good the experience was going to be.
