Widely famed for its classical elegance and poise, Marriott International is one of the top lodging brands on the planet. The company was founded by the Marriott family and has close to 6000 properties located in more than 100 countries. It has its headquarters in Washington, DC, and with enchanting resorts and hotels, Marriott boasts an opulence of its own. With over 90 years of operation in the hospitality industry, nothing more can be said of this iconic brand in terms of industry experience.
On top of its Marriott name, the company also runs a portfolio of other giant brands, including Sheraton, W Hotels, St. Regis, and The Ritz-Carlton. Others such as the Autograph Collection, Bulgari, and Residence Inn also operate under the humongous umbrella of Marriott. As of 2019, the company is run by the Marriott family, who have always focused on keeping the core values of the company intact, in the course of its existence. These values include putting people first, integrity, innovation, dedication to customer service, and serving the global community. Although the brand primarily focuses on luxurious stays, part of its focus goes to budget visits, which allows people from different social classes to enjoy its services.
