The JW Marriott Kuwait, Courtyard by Marriott Kuwait, Residence Inn by Marriott Kuwait and the prestigious Arraya Ballroom held ‘Together we’re better’ event on 9 October at Arraya Ballroom to celebrate Marriott and Starwood merger.
The event was attended by more than 200 associates from the different Marriott properties in Kuwait.
‘Together we’re better’ event was kicked off by a speech given by the Cluster General Manager of Kuwait Marriott Hotels, George Aoun, in which he explained all the details related to the merge and what it means for both guests and associates. After that, all the attendees enjoyed a delicious cake which was tailored to fit the theme of the celebration ‘Together we’re better’.
The acquisition of Starwood makes Marriott International the world’s largest and best hotel company. Marriott now offers the most comprehensive portfolio of brands including leading lifestyle brands, a significant global footprint, and leadership in the luxury and select-service tiers as well as the convention and resort segment.
In addition, the company now has best-in-Class Loyalty Programs. Marriott Rewards – which includes the Ritz-Carlton Rewards – and SPG are the most recognized and awarded loyalty programs in hospitality. Together, these programs will offer members more benefits when they link their accounts, as well as new destinations such as Aruba, Tuscany’s Serchio Valley and Kruger National Park in South Africa for SPG members and the Maldives, Bora Bora and Santorini, Greece for Marriott Rewards and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards members.
“We are happy to join thousands of Marriott associates around the world to celebrate this historic milestone. The combination of Marriott and Starwood means more than just adding scale to our business. The company now offers the best brands, best loyalty programs, and best opportunities for guests and associates, said George Aoun, Cluster General Manager of Kuwait Marriott Hotels.
