The Vagabond Club is Singapore's very first and only Tribute Portfolio hotel. Previously known as Hotel Vagabond, The Vagabond Club has only recently gone through a name change to reflect a more intimate and consistent setting. Tribute Portfolio properties (which fall under the greater umbrella of Starwood Hotels & Resorts) are essentially independent hotels with an inspired style. Having stayed in a number of Starwood Hotels & Resorts properties in Singapore and around the world, I was excited to check out my very first Tribute Portfolio property, The Vagabond Club.

Located in the Xinyi district, W Taipei is one of the most iconic hotels in the city of Taipei - it is also just a stroll away from Taipei City Hall Station, making it easily accessible via the Taipei Metro. There are no lack of luxury hotels in Taipei but if you are looking for a property that belongs to an international chain, you will not find any strong contenders from IHG or Hilton. On the other hand, you will find a number of properties from Starwood and Marriott here - hotels like the W Taipei offers a bold and distinctive decor that is not overly done (unlike some W Hotels in the world) but equally memorable.

Now that Starwood Hotels and Resorts is part of the greater Marriott International portfolio, it would make sense to view the brands simultaneously (especially since you get reciprocal elite benefits across SPG, Marriott Rewards and Ritz-Carlton Rewards now). For stays between 27 May 2017 and 4 September 2017, be sure to register for Marriott Rewards' MegaBonus and SPG's Take Three promotion to maximise on the upcoming stays. If you do not have any status with any program, remember you can get SPG Gold (and therefore Marriott Rewards Gold) with just one stay if you have a World MasterCard issued in Asia-Pacific!
