Two words: warm towels. And not the tiny hot towels you get on airplanes, either — big, fluffy, warm towels long enough for a 6’7” person. That’s a major plus for a hotel!
In this week’s episode of “Being The Points Guy,” Brian checks into The Gleneagles Hotel in Auchterarder, Scotland. Known for its sprawling fields of green, stunning castle-like exterior and fantastic food, it’s a hit pretty much all around. We could hardly come up with any “downs” when it came to rating this hotel. Oh — and it’s also home to the perfect breakfast sandwich.
While it’s not a points hotel, it is a part of the American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts program, available to cardholders of The Platinum Card® from American Express or any Centurion Cards. This will score you 5x Membership Rewards points for booking, and wonderful perks.
Brian and company also embarked on a “country pursuit.” And it didn’t involve any golf. Check it out below — and don’t forget to subscribe at the bottom of the page!
