Marriott International Offers Beach Guarantee

MarcoIslandMarriottBeachShot2 WESTON, FLORIDA – Marriott International is pleased to offer the Marriott Beach Guarantee, giving guests peace of mind when booking reservations at hotels situated on the U.S. coastline along the Gulf of Mexico.  Marriott is offering guests, whether traveling for group meetings, leisure or business, a variety of options in the unlikely event that their stays are impacted by an official beach closure by federal, state, and/or local authorities due to the oil spill.

Through Labor Day, participating Marriott hotels will offer a hotel credit, valued at 50 percent of the room rate, to individual business and leisure guests who choose to stay for each day the beach is officially closed.  In addition, individual business and leisure guests holding advance purchase reservations at participating hotels may cancel prior to arrival and receive a full refund if the beach is closed during their stay.

Additionally, participating Marriott hotels are offering groups and their attendees incentives for holding their events at these hotels.  We are working with groups scheduled to hold events or meetings on an individual basis to explore a variety of options should there be a beach closure, which may include waiving cancellation fees, rights to early departure and hotel credits or discounts on items or services at the hotel, such as food, beverages or spa treatments.

For complete terms and conditions and a list of participating hotels please visit the Marriott News Center at http://news.marriott.com/participating-hotels-and-terms-and-conditions.html. This information will be updated regularly.
