St. Regis Hotels & Resorts continues its plans to grow globally with the debut of ten new hotels and resorts in the next twelve months in vibrant gateway cities and exotic resort destinations including Bangkok, Florence, Tianjin, Doha and Abu Dhabi this year. With this milestone, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. (NYSE: HOT) continues to stand out as the world’s leader in luxury hospitality, with more hotels in more markets than any competitor in the luxury segment, offering guests and residents exceptional service levels and luxury experiences in a wide range of destinations across the globe.

St. Regis’ expanded footprint will span Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East and feature new construction as well as a magnificent and meticulous restoration of the Grand Hotel in Florence, which will open as The St. Regis Florence this fall.
