Marriott International is the hotel operator that MENA hoteliers would like to work for the most, according to the results of the Hotelier Middle East Salary Survey 2017.

For the first time, Marriott International has topped the list, with nearly 50% of our surveyed respondents wanting to work for the behemoth operator.

Last year, the company completed the acquisition of Starwood making it the owner of 30 brands worldwide – obviously a lucrative and interesting opportunity for hoteliers everywhere.
