Safety and Security Information

Last updated: January 2014

AHLA Safety Tips-Guests & Children At Marriott International we understand and appreciate that today’s travelers are more concerned than ever about their safety and security. Security has always been one of our top priorities and over the past several years we have increased our focus.  

Security procedures and risk assessments at our properties are reviewed often. Our staff has been trained to assess and respond appropriately to threatening situations and our hotels work closely with local, state, federal, and international authorities. Additionally, we work with the U.S. Department of State in establishing security protocols for our hotels. Because each property is unique, including configuration and location, individual security measures are tailored to each hotel.

How You Can Help

We encourage guests to be vigilant for their own safety. Below are links to resources for you and your family. Wherever your journey takes you, remember to pack your common sense.
