The Starwood Hotels & Resorts StarwoodPro five year anniversary celebrations continues with “wow” branded prizes from W Hotels, including an amazing W Bed. All StarwoodPros who have completed any of the modules are entered to win W surprises throughout this month.

Also new this month at Starwoodpro.com, we are launching Starwood’s newest destination module with a focus on Arizona. StarwoodPros can learn about the southwest cities of Tucson, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe and the array of Starwood properties available to your customers in these fabulous locations. From the city dubbed “most livable” in largest urban wilderness that is Scottsdale to the biking mecca of the college town of Tempe, the southwestern metropolis that is Tucson and of course the 6th largest US city and home to so much golf and outdoor excitement including the majestic Camelback Mountain in the city of Phoenix.

All StarwoodPros who complete the Arizona module by July 15 will be entered to win one of eight three night Arizona stays to experience the Westin, W, Sheraton, Four Points by Sheraton, Luxury Collection and Aloft options throughout the state.

And for those StarwoodPros who have not yet completed the new Texas Destination Module, there are still a few days to qualify for our seven Texas two-night stays. The new Texas immersion highlights Texas entertainment, shopping, attractions, dining and showcases the portfolio of Starwood properties in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston, Texas. In the Texas module, participants will learn the attributes of Texas and the unique opportunity Texas has for customers to experience all nine Starwood brands among the more than 40 Starwood properties available in the Texas portfolio.

In the first few months of celebration, Starwood has already awarded more than $40,000 in prizes to its participating StarwoodPros.

Throughout the ongoing celebration, Starwood is offering fabulous prizes: including gift cards, free nights, branded gifts, and more. Every module a travel professional completes or has completed in the last five years will be an entry for a chance to win.

Starwood has nearly1,200 hotels and resorts across 100 countries around the globe and offers 17 different destination immersions through its StarwoodPro travel professional program. Each month, new prizes are being added and travel professionals are encouraged to check the site often.

Travel professionals are encouraged to visit starwoodpro.com and complete the ProLearning Loyalty & Brands modules, which qualify you for STARPRO travel professional rates starting at just $69 a night. And this year, StarwoodPros have the chance to win weekly and monthly celebration prizes too.
