Marriott was created thanks to Willard Marriott in 1927 when opened a root beer stand in Washington D.C., United States. Marriott was the missionary in Washington and was convinced that what Washington needed a location to rest for a refreshing drink in the humid, sweltering summers. After some time the business expanded their enterprises from a basic bar to a chain of restaurants & 5 star hotels. The Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Virginia is the Marriott International’s longest operating hotel accommodation , having its 50th anniversary in 2009. Their son and current Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, J.W. (Bill) Marriott, Jr. has led the cooperation to rapid growth around the world. At the moment, Marriott International has about 3,150 fine hotels & resorts situated in the USA and 67 in other top destinations. Marriott Hotels International was founded dating back to 1992 as the Marriott Corporation was divided into two companies, Marriott International and Host Marriott Corporation. Back in 2002 Marriott Hotels International started a major restructuring by spinning off many Senior Living Services Communities (which is now part of Sunrise Senior Living) and Marriott Distribution Services, and therefore Marriott could concentrate on hotel ownership and management. In 2003 the amendments were terminated.
In April 1995, Marriott International acquired a 49% interest in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company LLC. Marriott Hotels was strongly convinced that it could grow revenue and profit margin at the Ritz hotel, a less effective major luxury hotel chain with a good number of properties either being unprofitable or barely breaking even. The sum of Marriott’s initial investment was budgeted to be $200 million in cash and calculated debt. The following year, Marriott Hotels spent $331 million to acquire the Ritz-Carlton Atlanta and take over a majority share in two properties owned by William Johnson, a real estate developer who had purchased the Ritz-Carlton Boston in 1983 and expanded his Ritz holdings over the next twenty years.
The Ritz Hotels initiated expansion into the very profitable timeshare market among other new initiatives made financially possible by the deep pockets of Marriott, which also lent its own in-house expertise in certain areas. There were other benefits for The Ritz-Carlton Hotels taking advantage from its relationship with Marriott, the Ritz used its parent company’s reservation system and buying power. The partnership was solidified in 1998 when Marriott International made it very clear to be interested in The Ritz-Carlton to 99 percent. By the year 1999 the revenue generated from the 35 hotels it directed around the world totaled just over $1.4 billion. Marriott International owned Ramada International Hotels & Resorts up to that moment when the business was sold on 15th September, in 2004 to Cendant. At all of the North American hotels the Marriott International is the first hotel chain offering food that is entirely free of trans fats. In 2005, Marriott Vacation Club International and Marriott International enfolded two of the 53 hotels that supported the maximum of $250,000 to the second inauguration of President George W. Bush. Marriott established on the 19th July, 2006 that all luxury hotel buildings they manage in the US and Canada would become non-smoking beginning September 2006. “The new policy includes all guest rooms, restaurants, lounges, meeting rooms, public space and employee work areas.”
