Exclusive: Starwood Unveils Commissionable Last-Minute Rates

Starwood Hotels and Resorts' best last-minute rates are now available every Tuesday on the company's travel agent website, and they are commissionable. The new program, called Starpicks, consists of last-minute reductions of at least 20 percent off regular rates. More than 75 properties across all of Starwood's brands are listed each week and are bookable from Tuesday until Friday. The rates apply to the upcoming weekend at hotels and the next two weeks at resorts.

Once clients are booked into a resort property, Starwood is aiming to make their stay even more personal and enjoyable through the new Travel Professional Resort Amenities program in Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean and French Polynesia. The program enables travel agents to choose, book and send an amenity to a client at the resort upon check-in via the "Client Amenities" tab on Starwood's travel agent website. A valid IATA, ARC or CLIA number is required.

Starwood's travel agent website has been up and running since September and is part of the hotel operator's refocus on the agent community. Visit www.starwoodpro.com. (DE)
