Will the American Express Platinum hotels save money or not?

Postby CarZin » Mon Mar 28, 2011 9:07 am

The hotel benefits (upgrades/etc), look awesome, but I often wonder, since you have to book through AMEX, if the rates dont make up for those perks. I am going to price some higher end options in Hawaii, and I would appreciate it if someone with platinum can price these rooms through their service. Should give me an idea if I should upgrade from Gold Premiere to Platinum...

August 22->30 2 Guests, standard room (lowest rate) King bed

Four Seasons Hualalai (on the big island)
TOTAL: $4962.13 (fifth night free promotion- standard total $5671.00)

Four Seasons Maui
TOTAL: $4219.08

St. Regis Princeville Resort

If someone could take some time, I'd really appreciate it!!

Hi CarZin,

I just got my Platinum Card literally a week ago and am interested in the perks/savings too.

You have to call for the Four Seasons Hualalai

But here's the one I found, booking thru Fine Hotels and Resorts on the Amex Platinum website:

I'm sure you already know the standard benefits for every hotel:

Room upgrade, if available
Daily continental breakfast for two
4 PM late checkout

Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea:

Additional Hotel Benefit: US$100 food and beverage credit to be used during your stay.

Mountainside Room King Bed: $3,720 for 8 nights
(pre-taxes and fees at checkout time)

St. Regis wasn't listed on their website as a search result and I couldn't find it manually thru FHR, only the NY and CO locations.

Hope this helps.
