Starwood Hotels & Resorts is the parent company of 9 lifestyle hotel brands - Sheraton, Westin, Four Points by Sheraton, W Hotels, The Luxury Collection, St. Regis, Le Meridien, Aloft and Element. With 1100 hotels in nearly 100 countries, Starwood has the most globally diverse portfolio in the world. Starwood's 10 customer contact centers across the globe annually handle more than 15 million calls, 2 million emails and 100,000 chats from our guests. Not only do we help people arrange their travel plans - from the road warrior who travels weekly for business, to the couple planning the trip-of-a-lifetime to celebrate an anniversary - we provide support to our hotels and our brands in a variety of ways, giving us a real diversity of opportunities and career paths.
We place a premium on people development. We have a very structured coaching model, and virtually all of our senior leaders began their careers in entry-level positions with Starwood, highlighting our commitment to promoting from within. Our company values are Do the Right Thing, Go the Extra Step and Play as a Team. When people are empowered to do these things for our guests and their peers, magic happens!
