Starwood has announced that it’s adding a new set of culinary benefits to its Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty program.
SPG members are now eligible to receive discounts at more than 500 restaurants and bars around the world. Discounts range from 10% to 30%. A quick scan of the site (as of this writing) shows discounts of mostly 15% at restaurants in various Starwood properties. For instance the site shows 15% discounts at Kitchen in the W Hong Kong, at Yan Ting in the St. Regis Singapore, and at Seasonal Tastes Restaurant in the Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa.
The site also features videos of cooking classes with SPG chefs showing how they create their signature dishes. For instance David Contreras at the Westin Abu Dhabi prepares Nicoise salad with tuna confit and Sergi Arola of the W Paris Opera works on patatas bravas.
More information on the benefits can be found at the site www.spgrestaurantsandbars.com.
