Starwood Preferred Guest, the Sheraton / Westin / W / aloft etc hotel group, has always been very switched on in allowing SPG members to earn points when eating in their hotels if you are not a registered guest

After all, if you are running luxury hotels with good restaurants, why wouldn’t members of your loyalty scheme want to eat with you?

Starwood has a number of special restaurant deals for SPG Gold and Platinum members.  Since SPG Gold is one of the benefits of American Express Platinum, that takes in a lot of people.

Starwood SPG

London offers are here and they are not a bad bunch.  Unfortunately, most come to an end on June 31st but hopefully a new batch will appear.

    June 31st?

    Just to clarify that the discounts are available to all members not just to Elite members. The difference is that Elite members get the other freebies.

    I presented my basic SPG card at one of their restaurant in Malta this weekend and got 20% off the food bill for the table. The % varies by restaurant.

    I’m glad it works for all members as I’m going to Le Meridien for a pre-theatre dinner on Friday. SPG haven’t bothered to send me a card so I’ve had to ask again. Hopefully just a valid membership number will do for now!
