starpoints question
« on: July 22, 2008, 01:37:46 PM »
if somebody besides myself stays at a starwood property would it work if they put my spg number? do they check to make sure the name on the reservation matches the name on the spg account or do they just give the points to whatever numbers in the reservation?

my experience is that they can use your SPG number and you will be credited for the stay.

The SPG member can book the reservation and give them the guests name which they will add to the rreservation record. You will then get the points for your friends stay. I have done this many times

I have done this many times too, but one time the hotel required that I pay for the stay b/c my SPG number was on the reservation, so I just agreed over the phone, when my freind went to check out he then asked them to put the charges on his credit card and they said sure no problem. YMMV

Interesting. Because I was told that it is legitimate to book a reservation for someone else, and just to be on the safe side add their name to the reservation
