Starwood Teams with Uber to Reward Preferred Guests

02/26/2015
Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. and Uber are putting travelers on the fast track to valuable rewards with today’s announcement of an exciting new strategic partnership that will give Starwood Preferred Guest® (SPG®) members who ride with Uber the opportunity to earn coveted Starpoints during any Uber ride, anywhere worldwide. 
 
With this new partnership, Starwood and Uber are enhancing the guest travel experience by ushering in the next generation in travel rewards. Now earning coveted Starpoints is as easy as requesting an Uber. After linking existing SPG and Uber accounts at spg.com/uber and completing one qualifying stay in the calendar year at any Starwood hotel worldwide, SPG members using Uber can simply sit back and enjoy the ride—during their stay or every day—while watching their points rack up. 
 
All SPG members will earn one Starpoint for every $1 USD spent on Uber rides—with bonus earning awarded while in-stay. 
 

  Points Earned Everyday Points Earned In-Stay
Preferred 1 per $ spend with Uber 2 per $ spend with Uber
Gold, Platinum 1 per $ spend with Uber 3 per $ spend with Uber
Platinum 75+ 1 per $ spend with Uber 4 per $ spend with Uber



 

The global partnership is available in every market where Uber operates, including throughout the United States, China, Brazil, and across Europe.  For more information and full details on the partnership, please see spg.com/uberterms.
 
To kickoff the partnership, Uber and Starwood are teaming up to surprise and delight SPG members and Uber riders with an “SPG #SuiteRide” in five cities around the world. On Saturday, February 28 Uber riders who link their Starwood and Uber accounts can select the “SPG” vehicle option within the Uber app for a door-to-door branded hotel experience on wheels and 15,000 Starpoints – good for a free night at category 1-5 Starwood hotel.
 
#SuiteRide members will experience the unique features and amenities from Starwood’s nine distinct brands—St. Regis®, The Luxury Collection®, W®, Westin®, Le MÉridien®, Sheraton®, Four Points® by Sheraton, Aloft®, and Element® in their SPG-branded Uber including:
Westin Hotels – an invitation to indulge in its signature well-being amenities, including a 10-minute Headspace meditation session, a Westin Heavenly Robe, and a Westin White Tea Travel Set.

W Hotels – a blend of iconic design and contemporary luxury will immerse riders in an extraordinary experience featuring LED mood lighting, music inspired by W, and a Bliss Spa travel pack.
 
St. Regis – a luxurious ride combining classic sophistication with modern sensibility where riders will enjoy fresh flowers; jazz music; Beyond, The St. Regis Magazine; and the St Regis Bloody Mary book. 
 
Aloft – a modern, fresh and fun experience including a mini-refuel kit and free wifi for the tech savvy traveler.
 
These one-of-a-kind, limited SPG Ubers will hit the road in the following cities around the world: Dubai, London, Mexico City, New York, and San Francisco from 2 pm – 7 pm local time.
