Starwood is a company that's full of surprises. The hotel chain constantly tries to dazzle guests with new properties in incredible locations around the world. Are you convinced that you've already experienced the best that this hotel chain has to offer? It may be time to think again! Starwood has unveiled an impressive list of new hotels that are set to open in locations around the world in 2017 and 2018.

Some of the hottest properties are already open and taking reservations. These properties boast fine dining, amazing views and endless comfort. The exciting part is that you may be able to book stays at some of these new hotels for free if you're a member of the Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty program.

Are you ready to take a look at the three new Starwood properties everyone is talking about? You might just discover that you have enough spare points in your account to justify trying them out before the rest of the world gets to. There's also time to accrue some points before you need to book your next stay.

The W Las Vegas

The new W Las Vegas is something to get excited about if you like to get away for fun weekends in Sin City. This stunning hotel is located on the northern portion of the famous Sunset Strip. It truly takes everything you already love about luxurious, glitzy Vegas hotels to the next level. In fact, guests will have a hard time finding reasons to leave the hotel.

It boasts seven unique restaurants, several entertainment venues and an amazing bar. How many points will you have to cough up to enjoy a stay in what many are calling the best new hotel in Las Vegas? A stay at the new W Las Vegas hotel will cost between 12,000 and 16,000 points per night.

Las Alcobas (Luxury Collection Hotel)

Few hotels in the world will make you want to make a toast to life. However, one of Starwood's newest additions will give you more than a few reasons to raise your glass and cheer. Las Alcobas has the enviable quality of being located in California's Napa Valley.

This Luxury Collection Hotel is a place that any wine fanatic simply must book a room at. What makes this new hotel especially charming is the fact that most rooms feature romantic balconies that overlook the surrounding vineyards. The hotel also features a state-of-the-art spa.

Its in-house restaurant offers amazing dishes that are prepared in the epic tradition of Napa cuisine. This highly luxurious property requires quite a few more points than standard properties in the Starwood portfolio. You'll need between 30,000 and 35,000 points to enjoy a night of bliss here.

St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club

There's no point in traveling to one of the most luxurious cities on the planet if you aren't going to stay in a hotel that lives up to your expectations. The new St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club matches the glitz and glamour of Dubai perfectly (check out our Dubai travel guide here).

Starwood is really making a statement with the introduction of this impeccable hotel into its property portfolio. What distinguishes this hotel from the many other luxury hotels in Dubai is the fact that it is situated on a massive equestrian complex that's home to the Dubai Polo Gold Cup.

Guests are likely to see many sports stars and celebrities walking through the gilded turnstiles of this hotel. While this property is certainly luxurious, it isn't actually the most expensive Starwood property to stay at when it comes to points. A room here will require between 20,000 and 25,000 points per night.
