Starwood Hotel’s plans for 2011 are impressively ambitious: the luxury hotel chain will open one hotel every two weeks in China. This expansion will cement its lead as the largest high-end hotel operator in China, with more than 70 existing hotels and a pipeline of over 90 new hotels.
“China continues to be the richest source of new Starwood travelers with enrollment in our Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty program jumping 71% due to the strength of our growing hotel portfolio and distinct brands that resonate with Chinese travelers,” said Frits van Paasschen, President and CEO of Starwood.
“Many predict that more than 70% of the world’s growth over the next decade will come from emerging markets, which is consistent with Starwood’s skew towards development in these markets,” van Paasschen added. “China recognizes that hotels are an essential component of infrastructure growth, and other fast growing markets are following suit. As the world’s most global hotel company with the strongest presence in emerging markets, these trends work in our favor, and we could not be more bullish on our long-term prospects.”
Starwood’s first-mover advantage in China dates back to 1985 with the landmark debut of The Great Wall Sheraton Hotel in Beijing, which was the first international branded hotel in the People’s Republic of China. “Starwood’s long legacy in China gave us a considerable head start. Today, with more than 30 years of experience in the market, longstanding native Chinese teams and valuable relationships with local owners and developers, this advantage continues to be meaningful,” said Miguel Ko, Chairman and President of Starwood’s Asia-Pacific Division.
