Westin Brand Gears Up For Worldwide Expansion in 2009 and 2010

The last six weeks of this year are going to be busy for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., as they open six new Westin properties before 2009 comes to a close. With their current focus on international expansion, three of the six hotels will open in India, one in China and two in the United States, but they won’t stop there. Following in 2010, the Westin brand will continue its expansion with 12 projected openings all over the world, including Canada, China, Greece, Japan, India, Mexico and the United States. Although economic times are difficult, Simon Turner, President of Global Development for Starwood Hotels & Resorts is committed to opening the best-in-class hotels and predicts success in both their current and emerging properties. Currently 111 of the 163 existing hotels are located in North America; however with the predicted increase of business and leisure travel to Asia and the Middle East, we can be sure that the Westin Brand will continue to expand their hotel base to maintain world-wide recognition and ensure company success.
