    Starwood does not have a large footprint in the UK. Marriott is much larger here and so should absorb the Sheraton's 11 properties pretty easily. It does mean that the new company owns 5 hotels at Heathrow (Marriott's - Slough/Heathrow, Renaissance Heathrow, Sheraton Skyline and Heathrow),

    The full list is of Starwood properties in the UK is:

    England
    Hayes

    Sheraton Skyline Hotel London Heathrow

    Liverpool
    Aloft Liverpool

    London
    Aloft London Excel

    I used to be Marriott guy. My local boozer was the bar at the Marina Del Rey Marriott in California. When I returned to the UK, the average Marriott price was always substantially more than the neighbouring Hilton or Holiday Inn. The amount of work that you need to put in to maintain status is crazy (although I have had some worthwhile challenges). I think the takeover of SPG will just drive my SPG business to HHonors or IHG.
