Mariott-Starwood towards a successful alliance
Mariott International on the way to acquire Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide announced that they had unanimously approved a definitive merger agreement becoming the world’s largest hotel group. Result: the created company will then benefit from leading lifestyle brands and international footprint of Starwood with magnificent Hotels W including: newest W Amsterdam and the strong presence of Mariott: recent inauguration of JW Mariott Venice on luxury and holiday villages segments, expanding its portfolio. Together, the two companies operate or franchise more than 5500 worldwide hotels, 1.1 million rooms. It is breathtaking! A. F.-M.
