Starwood is one of my favorite hotel chains. They have many different brands, including the most common Westin and Sheraton hotels, the high-end St. Regis, the stylish W hotels and the affordable Four Points hotels. All locations are of high quality. I like the W hotels, but I stay at the Westin most often because they are usually close to where my clients are.
I have been traveling for different companies using different Starwood hotel rates and codes, but in my experience, Accenture has an amazing global agreement with Starwood.
The company code for Starwood hotels is called the SET code, and the SET code can be filled out on the online booking form.
Accenture is a large consulting firm that specializes in information technology and strategy-related projects. Accenture employs more than 300,000 people worldwide and has corporate revenues of more than $30 billion.
The Accenture company code (SET code) for Starwood Hotels is 57464.
The same code applies to all Starwood hotels, including Westin, St. Regis, W, Sheraton, Four Points, Le Meridien, Aloft, etc.
I noticed that at some Westin hotels, IBM was able to get better rates, while at some W hotels, Oracle was able to get higher rates than Accenture. However, in general, Accenture was able to negotiate full discounts at all Starwood hotels in the US and Europe. For example, when I met with Accenture in Milan, Italy, I stayed at the Westin, and the Accenture rates were absolutely incredible for such an upscale hotel (I highly recommend you visit the rooftop terrace). So, if you work at Accenture, booking with an Accenture SET code will guarantee you a comfortable room at a great price.
I realized that many Accenture employees did not know their SET code. In fact, the code was not given to me by Accenture or an Accenture employee. I found Accenture’s SET code on the Flyertalk forum (www.Flyertalk.com). I usually use Accenture’s code when my travels are related to some of Accenture’s business. However, I have never been asked to show any identification at a hotel check-in.
Another Starwood hotel that I really like and highly recommend is.
-W Lakefront Hotel Chicago. The view of Lake Michigan is very nice. I also stayed at another W hotel in downtown Chicago, but the location of the Lakefront hotel was much better than the Lakefront hotel.
-The Westin Sunset Island Resort in front of Key West. I highly recommend an amazing resort in the incredible Caribbean.
