Starwood Hotels & Resorts is one of the world's largest hotel companies, encompassing nine distinct hotel brands and more than 1,000 properties across nearly 100 countries. This hotel group caters to luxury-seekers with its St. Regis and Luxury Collection hotels; these two brands are known for their more unique decor, high-end amenities (which often include spas and gourmet restaurants) and coveted locations. Meanwhile, for travelers who are more concerned with consistency and style often frequent Westin, Sheraton and Four Points properties. These hotels are particularly popular among families and business travelers for their work-friendly guest rooms and kid- and pet-friendly services. And for those who don't want the convenience of a Westin or a Sheraton and the swank of one of Starwood's high-end brands will find a comprimise in the Le Méridien, Aloft, Element and W brands. Many Starwood properties have earned spots on our Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in the Caribbean, Best Hotels in Mexico and Best Hotels in Canada rankings lists. U.S. News-ranked hotels and resorts are listed below.
Starwood also experiences a high level of customer loyalty thanks to its rewards program; partnering with American Express, Starwood's Preferred Guest program offers perks like free upgrades and complimentary stays to those who frequently choose to bed down in any Starwood hotel.
