BETHESDA, Md. — Marriott International is celebrating major milestones for its portfolio of independent hotel brands, with the opening of the 200th Autograph Collection hotel, the 50th Tribute Portfolio hotel and the anticipated opening of the 120th Luxury Collection hotel.
Combined, the three collection brands are expected to expand their global footprint to nearly 70 new locations in 2021, including 24 new market entries.
“We know guests are seeking to immerse themselves in the richness of the locale, to discover what defines the destination, and to experience one-of-a-kind hotels,” says Tina Edmundson, Global Brand & Marketing Officer, Marriott International. “This has become increasingly important over the past year, as those who are waiting to travel are counting down the days until they make memories on the road again. Our collection brands provide travellers with these truly authentic experiences, enveloped in the convenience and amazing benefits of being part of the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio.”
Autograph Collection is anticipated to see 48 hotels join the brand before the end of the year. Among these are two Canadian hotels. Muir, Autograph Collection is expected to begin welcoming guests in Halifax this summer and will feature a ‘Born of this Place’ design mentality, as well as unprecedented oceanfront views. Located in the heart of Montreal, Humaniti Hotel Montreal, Autograph Collection is expected to open this spring as a beacon of modernity. The property will boast 193 guestrooms and suites, distinct dining concepts celebrating Quebec’s culinary culture, as well as a rooftop pool, spa and fitness centre.
Notably, 19 of Autograph Collection’s expected hotel openings in 2021 will be immersive getaways under Marriott’s new all-inclusive platform in locations in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Antigua and Costa Rica.
In 2021, Marriott expects to debut 15 new Tribute Portfolio properties and four hotels under The Luxury Collection.
