Planning a trip with miles & points can be tricky, especially for folks new to the hobby.  Because sometimes it’s hard to figure out how many points you’ll need for a specific hotel.

So I decided to make a list of all the Category 1 Starwood hotels, organized by region and country.

It’s easier to use than using Starwood’s site. 😉
