Starwood Preferred Guest Guides
Starwood Preferred Guest (also known as SPG) is the loyalty program of Starwood Hotels, including The Westin, Sheraton, Aloft, Four Points, St. Regis and many other hotel brands.
Starwood points (Starpoints) are very valuable and versatile as Starwood have partnered with almost all of the major frequent flyer programs out there as a transfer partner. This means you can move your Starpoints over to frequent flyer programs with ease.
Starwood also offer the ability to purchase points, sometimes with a bonus or discount, yielding opportunities to buy points more cheaply and redeem them for high value flights and hotel stays.
