Book the room on your account and just add their name to the reservation.
Not complicated at all.
but using his points?

Ahh you weren't clear in your post.
AFAIK there's no way to do that.

I've booked my brother a room using my Starpoints and he received all my Gold benefits.

Exactly, that's what I thought he meant too. But @ethana wants to book a room for his(brother (or whoever) using the other persons Starpoints, not his own. Reread his second post.

if the person you are booking for has the same address as you, you can transfer his points to your account, and then book him a room from your gold account.

I did a stay some 18 months ago at a Starwood property but never claimed the miles, to be more precise I'm not even a member! Forgive my ignorance but can I still claim?

When I first opened an SPG account years ago I tried to get credit for a stay a few months earlier. It was past the cutoff date but they just manually gave me the credit.

Starwood Question
« Reply #95 on: February 22, 2015, 09:15:11 AM »
Made a mistake and need your guys advice. I booked a night in the st Regis Miami and the same night in the w fll thinking I was going to cancel st Regis. I didn't realize cancelation date for both was last week. I called to cancel and they said they can cancel the reservations but its up to he hotel if they want to give points back.

Anyone have experience getting points back?

go to your SPG acct and there is a link to cancel and the points are automatically re-deposited into your SPG. You usually can cancel anywhere within 4-48 hrs and no penalties.
