Marriott International, Inc. is a Fortune 500 company with more than 7,000 hotels and resorts in 130 countries and territories—including many in the Capital Region of Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.

The company, headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, was founded by J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott in 1927. Their son, J.W. “Bill” Marriott, Jr., spent more than 50 years shaping it into one of the world’s leading hospitality companies. Marriott is consistently recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work” and leads the industry with innovations that elevate style, design and technology.

All Marriott Hotels participate in the Marriott Bonvoy (formerly Marriott Rewards) frequent travel program that allows members to earn hotel points for every dollar they spend during each stay.
