“Starwood Hotels & Resorts has always been ‘out’ about our support of the LGBT community, especially as this relates to our associates and hotel guests,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader for W Hotels Worldwide. “It is our goal to create an environment where everyone feels invited, embraced, valued and respected – it is simply the right thing to do.”

Starwood has achieved a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index for the past 10 years, underscoring their commitment to diversity. Recently the Turn It Up For Change campaign by Starwood’s W brand joined forces with HRC and Jennifer Hudson to campaign for LGBT marriage equality across the United States.

"Industry leaders like Starwood know that supporting equality and inclusion is good for business,” says IGLTA President/CEO John Tanzella. “It has helped them attract and retain the most loyal guests and employees. We’re thrilled to partner in their efforts to send a welcoming message to LGBT travelers worldwide.”

Starwood operates more than 1,200 hotels in 100 countries and has nearly 200,000 associates worldwide.
