Starwood Preferred Guest SPG Series - #1 FREE INTERNET

I plan to write about a series of posts for SPG that is relevant to your stays at any of the 9 SPG brands and their properties. These posts will range from new benefits, promotions and reviews of stays I have had at Starwood properties which I would like to share to all of you. The first of which I am writing about their FREE INTERNET. So please read on...

SPG Starwood Preferred Guest is the rewards program for the Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, Inc. hotel group composed of 9 distinct brands namely:

St. Regis
The Luxury Collection
Le Meridien
W Hotels
Four Points

With any of their 1,100+ hotels and resorts, in over 100 countries, across their 9 brands, SPG is one of the most recognized rewards programs in the industry. And as the subject of this post, one newly added benefit to being an SPG member is receiving Free Internet* during your stays when you book on, on their hotel branded sites or SPG apps. 

They have the following chart of benefits depending on your membership level:

And lastly for this post, they also have started to introduce SPG Keyless. This is a program which allows you to use the SPG app to check-in, get your room number and unlock your door at select (participating) hotels.

These new benefits are some great news indeed! This is such a welcome addition to the offerings they have for their guests, on top of the awesome points earning and redemption that the program provides. It seems that most hotel brands are gearing towards providing free internet especially now that many independents actually lure customers with free internet at their properties. This definitely adds to their value proposition and is a fantastic way to reward customers who book directly with Starwood and build customer loyalty. Who doesn't love free internet? 

In upcoming posts... SPG Stay Review and What I love about SPG! Stay tuned!
