Company Description


Marriott is the largest hotel and resort chain in the world in terms of both number of units and annual revenue. Marriott currently operates 30 hotel brands, ranging from classic to luxury to extended stay offerings on six continents, including Courtyard and Sheraton brands.

Founders J. Willard and Alice Marriott started an A&W root beer franchise in Washington, D.C. in 1927, and their son Bill opened the first Marriott motor hotel in Arlington, Virginia in 1957.

To compete with booking websites like Expedia, Marriott has exclusive member rates and the ability to use its mobile app to check in and out.
