Marriott was officially founded in 1927, when J. Willard Marriott and his wife formed a chain of “Hot Shoppes.” The chain served root beer as well as other hot food for guests. Their company then grew into franchises, and began providing meals to airlines. Once going public in 1953, Marriott’s growth allowed them to transition into the hospitality industry.
The world’s first-ever motor hotel (aka motel) was born in 1957 by Marriott’s son. Providing affordable accommodations in Arlington, Virginia, the innovation of motels launched the brand’s growth even further.
Upon entering the timeshare industry in 1984, Marriott set the standard for the rest of the hospitality industry to follow. The first Marriott Vacation Club timeshare resort was located in the popular beach location, Hilton Head, South Carolina.
In 2011, Marriott Vacations Worldwide became its own publicly-traded company on the NYSE. Marriott Vacations Worldwide was formerly the timeshare division of Marriott International, and now stands on its own successful platform. Acquiring ILG, Inc. and all of its brands, Marriott Vacations Worldwide made headlines around the world.
Today, Marriott Vacation Club has over 60 club properties that span across 10 countries. Owners are also granted access to their entire network, including over 4,000 hotels and resorts as well as over 3,000 affiliated resorts through Interval International. Club Points can be used as currency, and owners can use them towards numerous travel excursions. These include guided tours, safaris, private luxury vacation homes, and more.
Marriott Vacation Club uses the popular and flexible points-based system. When you become an owner, you receive an annual allotment of Vacation Club Points. These points can be used as currency to make reservations for 50+ resorts across 130+ countries in Marriott’s portfolio.
Your Vacation Club Points can even be used for hotels, cruises, guided tours, luxury vacation homes and through Marriott’s external exchange program, Interval International.
Points are replenished every year and can be used for reservations whenever you would like. Not to mention, owners are able to bank or borrow their points to make one epic vacation.
