First developed in 2010, the “redesigned website is our way to express Marriott’s loyalty and commitment to all our guests,” said Randy Griffin, Vice President, Global Sales, Marriott International, Inc. “In 2012, our aspiration will be to ensure marriott.com/gaytravel is the trusted and welcoming source for leisure, business and group travel for the LGBT community as we do for all our customers.”
Like marriott.com, the renewed site will introduce new hotel openings and special events, destinations and ongoing deals and promotions. The site also offers unique hospitality, wedding and honeymoon packages showcasing popular destinations and resorts worldwide.
Marriott’s premiere hotels from coast-to- coast frequently host galas and events on behalf of LGBT community leaders including the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), GLAAD, PFLAG, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, among others.
