Le Méridien St Julians is officially launching an extensive array of member benefits that went into effect starting March, 1st. These new amazing advantages are on top of the existing benefits that our SPG members already enjoy today. These changes reflect the feed-back of SPG current members and will give Starwood elite members more flexibility and more choices.

The added benefits are the following:

4. Platinum members with 75 eligible nights per year? Double your earnings. Platinum members who reach 75 nights in a calendar year will receive 4 Starpoints per eligible dollar earned (instead of the standard 2 Starpoints per eligible dollar).
