Check out some of my favorite Starwood hotels in Europe for ideas on where to stay.

To find hotels that can be booked with points, I like using Hotel Hustle (which even shows you if rooms are actually available!) or AwardMapper.

  1. booked my flight to Dublin for 10/21-10/25 almost a month ago for $770, which I thought was a fantastic price, now I see it’s dropped to $620 and there’s nothing I can do about it… :'(

  2. @daniel Rubenstein – Some airlines will refund you the difference after the change fees! It’s always worth checking their policy when fares drop in price.

    Have a great time in Dublin!
