Everyone knows that Marriott hotels are some of the best hotels in the world. Marriott International, Inc. is a leading hotel, lodging and travel company with more than 6,500 incredible properties across 127 countries and territories. Marriott International’s footprint covers more of the globe than that of any other travel company, which is why Marriott is one of the most trusted hotel brands in the world. This brand of hotels are some of the most beautifully designed, luxurious, intuitive, modern and tech-savvy hotels you'll stay in, and a Marriott can be found at pretty much every bucket-list travel destination around the globe.
Marriott hotels is an extremely innovative, cutting-edge brand that is always thinking of new ways to surprise and impress its guests. For example, you know how when you're in the shower, you often have creative ideas as the warm water is running down your face? Well, the Irvine Marriott in California recently surprised guests by installing high-tech showers that record your thoughts and e-mail them to you. Guests enjoyed using the shower door as a canvas by writing their thoughts on the shower door with their finger, and those shower epiphanies were immediately e-mailed to the guest of that room, so that the guest's important ideas wouldn't be lost or forgotten. The idea came from a Marriott International survey of 5,000 international travelers which found that 51% of business travelers get their best ideas while showering. This is just one example of high-tech innovations the brand implements for its guests. Marriott will often test out innovative amenities, features or services and gather guest feedback.
When Marriott completed its acquisition of Starwood Hotels & Resorts in 2017, it became the world’s largest hospitality company. Starwood includes hotel brands such as the Westin, St. Regis and Sheraton. Marriott is also known for having one of the best loyalty rewards programs of any hotel chain out there. Guests who book a stay with Marriott can earn points towards free hotel stays, wine tastings, car rentals, cruises, and much more. Starting this summer, Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Rewards will come together as one amazing program. The awesome program is just one more reason to book with Marriott - aside from how incredible the brand's hotels are. So, why are Marriott hotels so fantastic- and which Marriotts are the most incredible? On his blog, Bill Marriott recently wrote that when it comes to the standard of Marriott Hotels, "every detail matters; from the booking experience, to how our guests are treated when they enter the lobby, to the cleanliness of the rooms, the quality of the food, and even how well the elevators are maintained." As far as which Marriotts are the best of the best, here is a list of 25 of the most incredible Marriott hotels around the globe:
