Starwood CEO Says Rates Going North - Live Interview - October 31, 2011

"It's a beautiful thing when your customers say, I know you're going to raise your rates it's just a question of how much"

Those are not my words, but the words of Frits van Paasschen CEO of Starwood Hotels & Resorts as spoken on Thursday October 27 when interviewed by Jim Cramer on the CNBC show Mad Money. Frits van Paasschen gave yet another extremely optimistic outlook for Starwood as well as our industry on the heels of a great earnings report from Starwood.
