He highlights strategic brand milestones: “We made great progress on the integration of Starwood capturing significant property and corporate overhead cost synergies […] We entered into a joint venture with Alibaba to better engage with Chinese customers and invested in PlacePass […] We also signed strategic new credit card agreements that will allow us to strengthen our customer offerings”.

The company declared adding over 76,000 rooms during 2017, including nearly 11,000 rooms converted from competitor brands and roughly 30,000 rooms in international markets.
