Bottle Rocket launches SPG App with Starwood Hotels & Resorts

When planning a trip for business or pleasure, the SPG: Starwood Hotels & Resorts app is your must-have travel companion! With over 1000 Starwood properties to browse, in 100 countries around the world, this app makes booking a trip quick and easy.

Within this app, you will find the information you need is at your fingertips, when you need it. The content updates automatically based on whether you are planning your trip, en route to your destination or already checked-in to a specific hotel.

Upon login, the app grants you access to your Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) account where you can track your upcoming reservations, see your past stays and preferences, and check your Starpoints® balance. You even have the chance to store your hotel room number so you never lose it!

The SPG app goes far beyond exploring Starwood properties and shares local information about your destination, including the weather, transportation details, local attractions, dining options and more! Plus, it integrates with your favorite social media communities. You can “check-in” to favorite spots, share photos of your adventure and read insider tips.

Throughout 2012, Starwood and Bottle Rocket will continue to release additional versions of the app in Mandarin Chinese and Japanese, with other languages available soon after.

Pack your bags and download the SPG app now!
