Starwood Hotels & Resorts, best known for brands like Sheraton, Westin, St. Regis and W has been on a tear lately, aggressively expanding its presence in high-growth areas across the globe. The number of Starwood hotels has grown 28 percent since September 2007, when CEO Frits van Paasschen took over and is expected to hit 1,500 by the end of 2018. "Five to six million people every month around the world are moving into cities. That's like adding a city the size of Boston or Singapore, which means new hotels," van Paasschen says. That's given Starwood a chance to expand on its core offering: luxury. One out of every seven hotels that Starwood has planned is a luxury property. Many are in Africa and Southeast Asia. "The real locomotive for growth right now remains China," says van Paasschen. Starwood has an 120 properties in the country, including in the resort sections of Hainan Island and in smaller cities such as Daqing, Guilin and Luohe. But van Paasschen says the company isn't merely targeting consumers inside China. Chinese tourists visiting other parts of Asia, Europe and the United States have become a huge segment of the market. "Chinese travelers today spend more outside of their country than Americans or Germans do," van Paasschen says. "They've passed the two biggest countries in terms of outbound travel spending." In building a luxury brand, Starwood is striving to deliver to consumers a healthy experience. That means catering to niche areas like fitness. "We've found there is a segment of traveler that would love to have us provide workout equipment wherever they might be," van Paasschen says. Starwood has partnered with New Balance, providing guests with workout gear to help them in their quest to stay fit. "We've found there is a segment of traveler that would love to have us provide workout equipment wherever they might be," van Paasschen says.

Marriott International has become the world's largest hotel chain after its $13 billion acquisition of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. With this development, several of the best known known names in travel are now united in one hotel company. This acquisition has brought together Marriott, Courtyard and Ritz Carlton brands with Starwood's Sheraton, Westin , W & St Regis properties. In total, 30 hotel brands now fall under the Marriott umbrella to create the largest hotel chain in the world. Starwood put itself up for sale in April 2015. The Stamford, Connecticut, company had struggled to grow as fast as its rivals, particularly in ”limited service hotels,” which are smaller properties that don’t have restaurants or banquet halls. The purchase gives Marriott more leverage with corporate travel departments who often look for one giant chain to house all of their employees. It also gives Marriott more power over Expedia and Priceline, the two giant online travel agencies that sell rooms on behalf of hotel companies in exchange for a commission.

DUBAI: Marriott International completed its acquisition of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., creating the world’s largest and best hotel company. Marriott now offers the most comprehensive portfolio of brands including leading lifestyle brands, a significant global footprint, and leadership in the luxury and select-service tiers as well as the convention and resort segment. Beginning today, Marriott will match member status across Marriott Rewards – which includes The Ritz-Carlton Rewards – and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG), enabling members to transfer points between the programs for travel and exclusive experiences when they link their accounts later today. The merger between hotel giants Marriott International and Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide will result in the construction of 22 new hotels in the UAE alone. Addressing a well-attended press conference, in Dubai on Sunday at the world's tallest hotel, JW Marriott Marquis, Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director, Middle East and Africa for Marriott International, said that the new properties will also create 6,000 plus new jobs in the UAE. Kyriakidis said the new jobs will be created over the course of the next four years with a total of 30,000 being created in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region. The $13 billion acquisition of the Starwood group on Friday means Marriott International now counts hotels such as the Sheraton, Westin, and St Regis in its portfolio. Marriott International said the merger makes it the biggest hotel operator in the world. Kyriakidis said he is confident about the future of the company. “Each and every employee has a bigger and brighter future now,” he said. “We are now by far and away the largest operator in the MENA area with 52,000 rooms. “We are also leading the pack in the UAE and will have 80 properties by 2025 with over 23,000 rooms. Presently, there are 58 properties with 17,000 rooms. Both Marriott and Starwood have their own loyalty programmes – with a combined membership worldwide of 85 million members. However, both schemes will remain intact – but customers will be able to interchange between the two.
