Dear Friends of Starwood Cares,
This issue, we celebrate the achievements of many outstanding associates, teams and hotels across Asia Pacific and in the industry.
On September 4 th, the Starwood Asia Pacific Divisional Award Gala Dinner recognized our winners in style and gave a fitting tribute to their selfless and inspirational examples. Many of the winners expressed their heartfelt thanks and gratitude to leaders, colleagues and families for their unceasing support and encouragement.
In addition to the gala awards dinner, our Starwood Cares President’s Award 2014 winners also enjoyed an exclusive 3-day, 2-night stay in Bangkok that included a tour of the culturally-vibrant city. Get a sense of their special trip here.
Building on our brand strength through our associates’ consistent and passionate activation of our brands and SPG, Starwood won the highest honor at the 25th Annual TTG Travel Awards 2014 when it was named Best Global Hotel Chain.
“This award is truly an encouragement for Starwood and an affirmation that we have been doing everything right as a hotel partner to our B2B customers. I want to share this award with all colleagues in every Starwood property across Asia Pacific, our global, divisional and regional team members as well as our Starwood Sales Organizations worldwide. Your combined efforts made it possible for Starwood to be a best-in-class hotel company.”
Still on the topic of celebrations, associates throughout Asia Pacific will happy to know that now, there is yet another official avenue where their good work will be recognized. The inaugural Global Rooms Week is designed to promote collaboration between Front Desk, Housekeeping and Engineering teams as well as recognize outstanding individuals and teams. These are exciting days indeed for properties and associates as they fully embrace GPS.
And as in every quarter, we honor outstanding acts of care through our quarterly Starwood Cares Awards. These associates and many others are constantly helping us to reshape and redefine service. To get to know the winners and their winning ways, click here.

More and more associates are joining our ranks of care ambassadors and their unique interpretations of care and their personal touch create unparalleled experiences that are authentic and hard to replicate. Thank you for your dedication to giving our associates, our guest, business partners and the community a better way to experience the world.
