can I book a hotel for someone else with my spg points? THANKS IN ADVANCE!

yes. Your name is on the booking. You are allowed to add a guest's name to your booking, double occupancy.

Can someone else use my gold status when booking their room? Is there a way for me to do it for them using my status?

Book the room on your account and just add their name to the reservation.
Not complicated at all.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

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

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.
