Remembering Marriott’s Arne Sorenson

Arne Sorenson


We lost one of the great ones yesterday.

Arne Sorenson was a visionary whose passion for service and the hospitality was unparalleled. We, at Heart of the House, will forever be inspired by his vision, his advocacy for equality and social change, and for his optimism in the face of adversity.

Our motto, putting people first, was influenced by his compassionate leadership and commitment to making the hospitality industry better for all people. His contributions have positively impacted countless lives, including thousands of Heart of the House associates who are so appreciative to have worked for him and the Marriott International Family.

Our deepest condolences go out to his immediate family and everyone at Marriott International. Mr. Sorenson, thank you for everything. You will be greatly missed by us all.
