Starwood Preferred Guest and Uber announce exciting new partnership

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. and Uber are putting travellers on the fast track to valuable rewards with its 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. 

“This new partnership with Uber accelerates our SPG members’ drive to rewards and is just one more way that Starwood is combining high tech and high touch to transform their travel experiences,” said Adam Aron, CEO, Starwood Hotels & Resorts. “It is especially satisfying for us at Starwood to be partnering with a cutting edge and innovative pioneer like Uber. It is truly impressive to see how Uber has revolutionized transportation for the better."  

Take Uber To More Starpoints
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 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 (or local market equivalent) spent on Uber rides—with bonus earning awarded while in-stay. 

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  

"When we looked at how to make the Uber experience even better for our millions of riders worldwide, a partnership with Starwood was a natural fit. There’s a Starwood property in the majority of the 291 cities where Uber operates,” said Travis Kalanick, CEO of Uber. “With this first-of-its-kind partnership, SPG members can now get an extra reward for taking an Uber anytime anywhere."  

Jumpstart your #SuiteRide this Weekend
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.
