According to the TOPHOTELPROJECTS database, at least 100 high end properties will be joining Marriott International’s flagship brand over the next few years.
Premium strand Marriott Hotels & Resorts already has over 600 hotels in its system across more than 65 countries and territories around the world.
The five star brand’s upcoming projects will add at least 28,380 rooms to its portfolio throughout 33 different nations.
The geographical spread is weighted towards Asia, with 58 sites, while North America trails behind on 24, though still significantly ahead of Europe’s 10.
A total of 47 projects within our database will open in China, making it top of the country count. The USA is a distant second on 15, with India just making it into third with three properties.
Likewise, looking at individual cities, we see that the only conurbations with more than one development are all in China: Shenzhen, Hefei, Hangzhou, Changzhou, Nanjing, Chengdu, Guangzhou and Zhuhai, all recording two sites.
The pipeline should peak next year with 36 deliveries, with 2024 next in the list with 18. The last couple of months of this year will see another 10 completions, while 2025 will see a further nine. The remaining 27 either haven’t been designated an end date yet or it is beyond 2025.
Notable upcoming projects include the imminent Washington Marriott Capitol Hill which will open in the US capital in January 2023. The 235-room hotel will anchor a new, mixed-use development in the NOMA neighbourhood. With a contemporary design, the site will also feature a rooftop terrace and bar, an expansive 24-hour gym and over 13,000 sq ft of event space.
Plus two of the numerous Chinese sites are the 325-key Hebei Yanjiao Marriott Hotel and the 300-room Chaozhou Marriott Hotel. The former will be both the first Marriott hotel to open in Hebei Province and the brand’s first sport hotel in China when it delivers in May 2023, while the latter will occupy 40 stories of a mixed use skyscraper which will also contain offices when it opens in Q3 2023.
