The World is Yours. See more through the Starwood Preferred Guest Program

If there are two things Starwood Vacation NetworkSM Owners can appreciate, it’s traveling to amazing destinations and staying in stylish accommodations. With SVN, Owners get that opportunity through automatic Gold status in the Starwood Preferred Guest® program, your connection to the world’s largest collection of luxury hotels and resorts.

When it comes to booking trips through SPG, one unique benefit is that as a SVN Owner you can simply convert your StarOptions to Starpoints®, which can be redeemed for a variety of travel options.

“… we have continued to enjoy the SVN and SPG program for our honeymoon and other relaxing trips …”

– Owner Germaine D.

“We stayed at Sheraton Luxor Resort after our second Nile cruise and I had no idea my boyfriend was going to propose. Since then we have continued to enjoy the SVN and SPG program for our honeymoon and other relaxing trips, including visits to Oahu, Kaua‘i, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bahamas, Orlando, and soon off to France. Thank you SVN and SPG. It’s a wonderful program,” said Owner Germaine D.

To ensure you fully take advantage of the industry’s best hotel redemption program, here are the various ways to see the world through the Starwood Preferred Guest program.

Redeem for Rooms — With more than 1,100 hotels and resorts in nearly 100 countries, Starwood makes it easy to get out and explore. Whether you want to book a stay at The Great Wall Sheraton Hotel Bejing in China or the Le Mèridien St. Julians Hotel & Spa in Malta, Starpoints will put you in amazing hotels all over the world. Even better, you can redeem Starpoints for a variety of options, including:

  • Free Nights – Redeem for free nights without blackout dates or extra point charges on standard rooms. If there is a standard room available, it’s yours. And it typically takes just three stays to earn a Free Weekend Night Award.
  • Fifth Night Free: Redeem four nights and your fifth night is free at category 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 hotels.
  • Room & Suite Upgrades – Use as few as 1,000 Starpoints for a room upgrade at any participating Starwood hotel or resort.
  • 50% off Regular Rack Rates – Redeem just 1,000 Starpoints for a certificate offering 50% off regular rack rates for a stay of up to five nights.
  • Nights & Flights – Use your Starpoints to pay for your entire vacation — hotel and airfare. Redeem 60,000 Starpoints for 50,000 airline miles and five free nights at a Category 3 hotel or resort. Or 70,000 Starpoints for 50,000 airline miles and five free nights at a Category 4 hotel or resort.
  • Cash & Points – Redeem for free nights using a combination of cash and Starpoints. Stretch your Starpoints with more choices around the world with options, including: upgraded rooms and suites where available.

Redeem for Flights — With SPG Flights, you can redeem Starpoints to fly on more than 150 airlines, with no blackout dates. Those standard restrictions that limit most frequent-flyer awards won’t even be an issue. Plus, you can search for airline tickets whenever you choose, even during peak periods like holidays.

Bid on Unique Experiences at Moments by SPG — Transform your Starpoints® into one-of-a-kind experiences all around the world. SPG is your ticket to the ultimate in music, sports and the arts, so be sure to check the site frequently for an ever-changing lineup of events like “On Tour with SPG”, where you can bid on premium concert tickets, members-only acoustic performances, backstage tours and meet & greets with your favorite artists.
