Revving Up Rider Rewards With Starwood Hotels
We believe riding with Uber should be rewarding in more ways than one, and that’s why we’re excited to announce a first-of-its-kind partnership with Starwood Hotels & Resorts.
72% of the more than 290 cities where Uber operates feature a Starwood hotel
Starting today riders who are Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) members have the opportunity to earn coveted Starpoints during any ride on the Uber platform.
To participate, Uber users who sign up to become new or are existing SPG members simply need to link their accounts at spg.com/uber. After completing a qualifying stay at a Starwood hotel, SPG members can start earning one Starpoint for every $1 spent on Uber, and additional bonus Starpoints can be accumulated during Starwood hotel stays.
Earn rewards on the go with Uber & SPG
To kick things off we are giving Uber and SPG members in Dubai, London, Mexico City, New York, and San Francisco the chance to ride in style with SPG. On Saturday, February 28, all users who link their SPG and Uber accounts will be able to select the “SPG” vehicle option within the Uber app for the chance to catch a free “SPG #SuiteRide” between 2 pm and 7 pm local time.
Lucky riders will receive 15,000 Starpoints – good for a free night* at a qualifying Starwood hotel and a door-to-door branded hotel experience on wheels featuring one of Starwood’s nine distinct brands—Aloft, Element, Four Points, Le Meridien, Sheraton, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection, W Hotels and Westin. Each SPG #SuiteRide highlights unique brand features and offers all-time favorite amenities including the Westin Heavenly Robe or W Hotels Bliss Spa Travel Pack. Select your city to learn more about requesting a #SuiteRide. Rides are limited and are on a first come first serve basis.

Today, I’m excited to announce that Arianna Huffington will join Uber’s board. For those of us who know Arianna, it’s clear she knows a thing or two about being an entrepreneur. As the founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, she’s built one of the most successful, innovative media companies in the world… from scratch. […]
