Job Vacancies at Sheraton Hotels
Sheraton Hotels and Resorts : The origins of the brand date back to 1933, when Harvard classmates Ernest Henderson and Robert Moore purchased the Continental Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1937, they purchased the Standard Investing Company and made it the company through which they ran their hotels. Their second hotel, and the first as part of the new company, was the Stonehaven Hotel in Springfield, Massachusetts, a converted apartment building they purchased in 1937. The chain got its name from a third hotel the pair acquired in Boston, which already had a large lighted sign on the roof saying “Sheraton Hotel” that was too expensive to change. Instead, Henderson and Moore decided to call all of their hotels by that name.Henderson and Moore purchased Boston’s famed Copley Plaza Hotel in 1939, continuing with their rapid expansion and opening properties along the entire East Coast. In 1945, Sheraton was the first hotel chain to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
In 1949, Sheraton expanded internationally with the purchase of two Canadian hotel chains. In 1956, Sheraton purchased the Eppley Hotel Company, which was then the largest privately held hotel business in the United States, for $30 million. Three years later, in 1959 it purchased the four hotels owned by the Matson Lines in Honolulu, Hawaii, its first hotels outside North America. In 1955, Sheraton began to build large highway hotels (100-300 rooms); in 1962 a franchise division was created to promote Sheraton Motor Inns. These provided free parking and competed with roadside motels.The 1960s saw the first Sheraton hotels outside the US and Canada with the opening of the Sheraton-Tel Aviv Hotel in Israel in March 1961 and the Macuto-Sheraton Hotel outside Caracas, Venezuela, in 1963. By 1965, the 100th Sheraton property, the Sheraton-Boston Hotel, had opened its doors. The multinational conglomerate ITT purchased the chain in 1968, after which it was known as ITT Sheraton. The chain deployed its automated Reservatron system and, in late 1969, a US national toll-free number displaced two hundred local Sheraton reservation numbers.
