Starwood launches new dining discounts for SPG members

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

In late June, I ran this article which introduced the special dining discounts that Starwood offers to Starwood Preferred Guest members when eating in their hotel restaurants – even when not staying there.

Unfortunately, I was a bit behind the pace last time as those offers were close to expiry when I posted them.  I am making amends for that now.

Starwood SPG

Here is the new list of London dining discounts for SPG members.  These are valid until the end of September.

You can also find discounts for other parts of the world by toggling through the menu options on that page.

Some of the deals seem pretty good.  The Park Lane Hotel, for example, is offering – for meals taken in their amazing art deco lobby or main restaurant:

Free food for children under 6 years

15% off your food bill

A free glass of wine with your meal (lobby only)

You will also earn Starwood points when you pay.

Remember that you can join Starwood Preferred Guest for free at so these deals are effectively open to anyone.
