Foursquare Starwood Resorts Checkin

Starwood Preferred Guests (SPGs) can now earn additional points, badges and rewards from their loyalty program when they use Foursquare at participating Starwood hotels.

The new program begins on Tuesday with Foursquare/SPG members earning 250 bonus Starpoints when they link their Foursquare and SPG accounts together. Users then simply checkin to more than 1,000 hotels after confirming their reservation and they will earn points and other rewards.

According to the official Foursquare blog:

Starwood will continue to tailor and optimize Specials for people who are using foursquare. Can’t wait to get started? Go to and link your SPG and foursquare accounts today. Happy travels!

Starwood resorts include: St. Regis, W Hotels, Four Points, Westin, Le Meridien and Sheraton hotels.

The company is also running a promotion through July 31, 2011 in which members who check in can win a resort getaway, receiving one entry per checkin for the contest.

Loyal members who checkin the most at Starwood locations will be dubbed ‘SPG Mayor’ and will be allowed to share travel tips and destination hotspots in promotional Starwood materials.

More to come from the two companies in the near future. In the meantime share with us what you would like to see included in Starwoods new social promotional program.
