Marriott International has revealed Homes & Villas by Marriott International, a home rental initiative offering 2,000 premium and luxury homes.
Properties are located in over 100 destinations throughout the United States, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America.
“The launch of Homes & Villas by Marriott International reflects our ongoing commitment to innovation as consumer travel needs evolve,” said Stephanie Linnartz, global chief commercial officer, Marriott International.
“What started out as a pilot a year ago is now a global offering, providing our guests with the space and amenities of a home backed by a trusted travel company, and the very best in loyalty benefits.”
Marriott’s expansion into home rentals was developed as a result of the 2018 pilot under the brand extension Tribute Portfolio Homes.
During the pilot, the average guest stay was more than triple the typical hotel stay.
Marriott is launching Homes & Villas by Marriott International with select property management companies that are already managing these homes.
These property management companies provide guests a professionally cleaned home with 24/7 support, high speed wi-fi, premium linens and amenities, and family-friendly conveniences upon request.
“Our approach to home rentals allows us to curate an incredible collection of homes that deliver an elevated travel experience,” said Jennifer Hsieh, vice president, Homes & Villas by Marriott International.
“By working with a select group of professional management companies that understand and operate in this dynamic landscape, we are able to focus on what we do best – selecting a breadth of homes in inspiring destinations, setting standards for responsive service and designing a seamless booking experience that helps our guests navigate an increasingly complex and uncertain set of home rental choices.”
