Marriott announces great rooms


MARRIOTT International has unveiled its great room concept, a revolutionary transformation of public space in its Marriott and Renaissance hotels and resorts.

It is a concept designed specifically for the 24/7 work patterns of business travellers today, who smoothly transition and mix work, relaxation, socialising and play throughout the day, said a senior official.
Says Mike Jannini, executive vice president of brand management, Marriott International, “With our great room concept, guests can tailor the use of these marvelous spaces to their own needs, just like they do in their own homes. Last year we launched a guest room that could easily be adapted to individual and unique needs. Now we are doing the same with our lobbies.” The concept knocks down architectural barriers, creating zones or adaptable spaces that enable guests to more easily meet and work in small groups, take a private time out, or casually dine in more open spaces with easy access to the latest technologies.
