I had a similar experience where the interviewer claimed my answer was confused and nonsensical when I know all of my answers were correct, succinct and to the point. I now believe this demonstrates a negative pattern that should be questioned.And I understood the point you were trying to make about treating your team with respect and working hard to get the job done. It was obvious.

Everyone should be aware that the PMO Director keeps a list of everyone that's interviewed, and if you are turned down they won't talk to you again even if it's 5 years later. As an Executive who has run a PMO, I find this shocking. People can change and grow a lot in 5 years, and Starwood is missing out. Perhaps this is why they are constantly looking for the same people over and over again. And that's usually the sign of a mismanaged and toxic work environment.
