According to Buying Business Travel, Starwood Hotels & Resorts has launched a benefit programme that it claims will simplify travel management and deliver benefits and services to buyers.
The new programme gives travel buyers the opportunity to earn up to 7% discounts on room nights, and make it easier to manage corporate travel with online tracking tools, sales and service specialists and online support.
As room nights accumulate, buyers will be able to gift Starwood Preferred Guest elite status to their colleagues. All employees of registered accounts will receive Corporate Preferred Status which includes an award of two Starpoints for every eligible US dollar spent at participating hotels.
The programme will be available from October 2014.
