Marriott Hotels offer vacation packages and other great deals.

Marriott International Inc. has established itself as a key player in the international hospitality sector. With more than 2,500 properties worldwide, it would be right to say the Washington, D.C based group has a formidable presence. According to information available on the Marriott website, it had its origins in a humble root beer stand in the nation’s capital in 1927. The founders were J Willard and Alice S Marriott. The group’s first international venture was in Acapulco in 1967. The website also claims that the group employs 128,000 people.

Over the years the organization has received numerous accolades and recognitions internationally. Many prominent travel, trade and hospitality magazines have featured the hotel chain on their lists of giants in the industry. The Marriott Group has different brands. These include the Courtyard and the Residence Inn. Each brand is targeted at a different set of people and seeks to address their requirements. By staying at a Marriott hotel you can choose to earn reward points which can then be redeemed in a variety of ways.

The group also offers package vacations and other similar deals. One good place to look for latest information on all this is their official website. Alternately, you can choose to be informed of all the updates through newsletters and e-mails by subscribing online. Booking rooms online is, of course, possible. In case you need to host a wedding or a conference or a fund raiser, the Marriott offers you a choice of locales. You can also utilize the expertise of their chefs and florists and catering staff if you wish. Marriott Gift Cards are also offered in case you need a special gift for some one. These can be for spa treatments or weekend getaways or a dinner for two. You can also include spa products with your Marriott Gift Card.
