Subject: Marriott + Starwood = The World's Largest Hotel Company
Merged company will offer broader choice for Marriott Rewards members
As a valued member, we're excited to share the news that Marriott International
will join together with Starwood Hotels & Resorts to create the world's largest
hotel company. For our Marriott Rewards members, this will mean even more
choices in even more places, giving you access to 1.1 million rooms across
5,500 hotels in more than 100 countries.
Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) are among the industry's
most-awarded loyalty programs, and they should be even stronger when the
companies merge. Our programs and brands complement each other well, and we
intend to draw upon the best of both programs to provide more value for our
guests and hotels.
This is the start of a long journey as we combine our two companies. For now,
we remain separate, and there is no change to your Marriott Rewards program
status, your Rewards points or your existing reservations. You will continue to
earn Rewards points and elite stay/night credit for your stays, and bonus
points for any promotions in which are you are participating. There is no
change to how you manage your Rewards account or book reservations.
Over the coming months, as we have more to share we'll be sure to reach out to
you by e-mail, at marriottrewards.com<http://marriottrewards.com> and via
twitter (@MarriottRewards). In the meantime, we remain at your service wherever
you need us—whether in our hotels, at
marriottrewards.com<http://marriottrewards.com>, the Marriott mobile app, or
via our Customer Care Centers.
All my best,
President and Chief Executive Officer
Marriott International, Inc.
