Starwood Hotels & Resorts joins with Marriott International

Worlds Largest Hotel Company

Today we're excited to share the news that Starwood Hotels & Resorts will join together with Marriott International to create the world's largest hotel company. For Starwood Preferred Guest® (SPG®) members, this will mean even more choices in even more places, giving you access to 1.1 million rooms across 5,500 hotels and resorts in more than 100 countries.

They will work to bring you the very best of SPG and Marriott Rewards®, two of the most rewarding loyalty programs in our industry. Members are at the core of everything they do, and that will not change.

Today is the first day of a long journey as they combine their two companies. For now, they remain separate, and there is no change to your SPG program status, your Starpoints® or your existing reservations. You will continue to earn Starpoints and elite stay/night credit for your stays, as well as bonus Starpoints for any promotions in which you are participating. There is no change to how you manage your SPG account or book reservations.

Over the coming months, as they have more to share, they'll be sure to reach out to you by email, at and via twitter (@spg). In the meantime, they remain at your service wherever you need them — whether in their hotels, at, on the SPG mobile app or via our Customer Contact Centers.
