Marriott to acquire Starwood

Last week Marriott announced their purchase of Starwood at a cost of $12.2 billion. The deal is expected to close in mid 2016. If this transaction closes, Marriot will become the world’s largest hotel company owning 27% of all hotels on the globe. Marriott would be the only hotel company to have more than 1 million rooms, ahead of Hilton. The Marriott group would own a total of 14,572 units – 11,641 hotel units and 2,931 timeshare units.

On a side note, when Blackstone acquired Hilton they had a 26 billion dollar deal. This transaction between Marriot and Starwood would be the second largest acquisition in the hotel industry.

Details of how the two companies’ timeshare point systems will be merged are yet to be announced. We will notify our users as soon as we have detailed information.
